(Our first car voyage with three! Before we took out the 8th seat and converted to captain's chairs in the second row with Eloise in the third row.)

A family member reached out recently to ask for car entertainment suggestions for a long car ride she's taking with her t...

(Last day of school photo! I can't believe Eloise is done with preschool forever!)

We are three weeks into summer and so far everyone's having a great time. The girls just finished up three weeks of camp at their school, which they loved and I am feeling smart for signi...

A couple weeks ago we were swimming with friends and when we took the requisite snack break and were sharing our snacks, we went crazy over their trail mix!

With just over a week of school left, summer is just around the corner for us, and I have been accumulating some thoughts and a loose plan.

A little announcement for you today!

Another baby is on the way for our family, and I'm due mid-December. We are getting excited to meet him or her, and it's a dream realized to be entrusted with four little souls. We told the girls last night, after my 12-week ultraso...
