Eden married Kevin last weekend. The weather was beautiful, friends and family gathered, and it all went well. Below are a collection of photos of the day taken by various people.
Blaine took the kids to church tonight, and I stayed home with sleeping Elliot. (Formerly sleeping. Now she’s ingesting dry cheerios at a rapid rate and looking thoroughly confused at the quiet house she woke up to.) I was cleaning up supper after they left, found a nasty dried out milk mess under the spoon […]
When offered the opportunity to review the Institute for Excellence in Writing as part of the Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s Review Crew, I was thrilled. I reviewed Fix It!

Heirs. Where does she get this stuff? I asked a […]
Going through old photos of the kids, these struck me. I took them in Pennsylvania before we moved, and they are some of my favorites. Sterling, age 2. His brother looks a wee bit like him, I think. Liberty, age five. She hasn’t changed so much… I think she looks the most like her current […]
