A new year is here

by Chelsea Myers on August 25, 2015


Scott started preschool this week.  Although he’d gone to daycare in the past, this was his first real “first day of school”.  He was excited but apprehensive.  Quick with a “Bye, Mom and Dad,” when we left but quick with lots of hugs when I came to pick him up after lunch.  Daniel had his […]


Shark 1 and shark 2

Scott graduated today, and you can see he was very proud of his shirt. Here is some video of his “summer clothes” and “winter […]

You want me to have some of that? Where are we going? Are you going to exercise? What are we going to do next? What […]

We traveled to Olympia, WA last week for my brother’s wedding and decided to make a vacation of it by visiting Seattle and Portland beforehand.  I’d been to Seattle twice before for conferences but never to Portland.  And the guys (Daniel included) had never been to the Pacific Northwest.  I haven’t compiled all the pictures […]
