Chalk4Peace 2012

January 15, 2012


Today, we participated in the Chalk4Peace event at our school. The event brought together about 30 people from the community (much smaller than desired). But, we had fun, nonetheless. The Girl , The Wife, and I had lots of fun drawing and coloring for a few hours. She even took the initiative to color on […]

Lightsaber Noises

January 11, 2012


The other night we were driving home and began making lightsaber noises with our mouths. Of course, it did become a competition and I insisted that I made the most excellent lightsaber noises of the family. Kokkiree insisted that she was the most awesomest, which was eagerly supported by the completely biased opinion of The […]

The Next Three Days

August 2, 2011


We’re down to three days.  Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday. Then, we’re gone. Three of us.  Three days. One dog.  One car. We’re thankful to be leaving. We’re thankful to have you following.

Whew.  Exhausted.  When’s bedtime? This summer has been the first time where I’ve done almost nothing. Last summer, […]

Memories Conjured By Confused Child

July 18, 2011


“Hang it up,” we said. “How do I hang it up?” The Girl asked. She was holding the hotel phone. The cord sagged between the cradle and the child. She looked at the receiver and back at us. The Girl enjoys grabbing things and asking about them, playing with them, and generally finding out all […]

Seventy Miles Makes All The Difference

July 16, 2011


We started stay-cations as a way to get out of the house and enjoy our lives. Escape an hour this way or two hours that way. This time we went seventy miles. There’s something strange that happens the second you move an hour out of the area. Things seem a bit more normal. You can […]
