Those Summer Nights

January 16, 2020 in Crew, Finn, Golden Light - No Comments

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for golden evening light. My tombstone will probably say something like, “Look at the light!” because I point it out to my kids every single day. Warm summer nights are the perfect time to round up whoever I can to come out and…

A Boy and His Bike

January 13, 2020 in Crew, Golden Light - No Comments

It’s 2020! Time to dust off the old blog. I’m about a year and a half behind on documenting our lives and I just can’t give it up or skip ahead. Too much good has happened to jump to the present. I love writing records and I’m so glad for…

Preschool Graduation

October 14, 2019 in Crew, Preschool - No Comments

Crew enjoyed water day on his last day of preschool. I stayed to volunteer and helped at the sand art and necklace making stations. After an adorable musical program, the preschoolers were promised popsicles. Finn finagled his way into getting a popsicle too. We adored Crew’s preschool and teacher and…

The Braves

October 9, 2019 in Baseball, Crew, Sports - No Comments

Nash officially retired from baseball this year so I was really happy when Crew wanted to play Tball. I’m a sucker for Little League. There’s just something about those practices and games on warm spring nights that make it feel like the whole town is coming together. Crew played for…

Out of This World

October 7, 2019 in Birthdays, Crew, Parties - No Comments

Crew always manages to convince us to have a birthday celebration with friends. It’s hard to resist the level of persuasion and excitement he has about birthday parties. I didn’t mind too much this year because his idea was to gather at a new local park. All it required was…

Crew is Five

October 6, 2019 in Birthdays, Crew - No Comments

I know of no one who is as excited about holidays, especially birthdays, than Crew. His 5th birthday fell on a Sunday and he couldn’t wait to get through church and celebrate. He opened a few gifts and showed off the charts excitement for each one. We went to the…

Scooters and Rain Boots

May 6, 2019 in Crew, Finn - No Comments

The first week back to school after Christmas break has historically been rainy and this year was no exception. Our “fall” comes in January and the trees lose their leaves for a short season. Crew and Finn hopped on their scooters in pajamas and rain boots on a rainy morning…

The Blue Ninjas

April 6, 2019 in Crew, Sports - No Comments

Crew waited years for it to be his turn to play a sport. After all the hype of his first practice and getting dressed 11 hours in advance, the practice got lightning-ed out. Even though day one was a bust, Crew was still all smiles because he got to pick…

Crew the Pirate

March 27, 2019 in Crew, Halloween - No Comments

Some costumes are too good to retire after one year and that’s how Crew felt about the pirate costume. He wouldn’t consider dressing up as anything else. That made my job easier too. Win win. If only we had inflatables like some of our neighbors, then all of Crew’s Halloween…
