But school’s out for summer vacay and now I’ve got a chance to look back and write about our Spring highlights 🙂 Calvin’s… Continue reading Spring Five
Happy Rare Disease Day!

Happy Birthday dear Henryyyyyy… Haaappy Biiiiiirthday toooooo youuuuuuu!!! Donuts, apparently, are our go-to birthday breakfast this year, mainly because donuts are my favorite and I’m the early riser who is more willing to hit the Dunkin’ or Krispy Kreme drive through than I am willing to actually cook something. And, ya know, they’re a special treat… Continue reading Henry’s 4th Birthday!

My brother played ball from the time he was tall enough to bat off a tee until he started high school. James didn’t necessarily grow up a baseball fan, but was converted while we… Continue reading No Night Games for Henry
