Lachlan’s poop face is my favorite. It’s getting published here so I can keep it forever. That’s all.
Five kids loaded up bright and early last Saturday morning and headed west to the Black Hills for church camp. It’s a new camp for all of them, since we joined a different church here than the one my parents had attended previously. Tonight they pulled back into the driveway, battle weary, slightly sunburned, and […]
We feed him, I promise! He usually even gets his food on a plate, at a table. But you know. Sometimes you just decide to clean up your spilled popcorn like a dog.
Creed was playing on the front step yesterday when he got ahold of a tiki torch and drank the fuel. I don’t know how much, I don’t know why the torch was there – it hadn’t been and no one is confessing to having moved it there. Regardless, what followed were some of the scarier […]
Liberty turned 19 on Sunday. I’m still a little in denial. I was married and expecting her at 19. I cannot believe she’s nearly so old. She’s going easy on me with the boys just yet though. Her requests for her birthday gifts: a dresser and a lunchbox cooler. That’s when I knew she really […]

Liberty, aka “Bobby” to Creed, called one day and said she was working in a field close to home spreading fertilizer and asked if I could run Creed to her. He’s still talking about it almost a month later. He got to ride with her for hours. He now sleeps with his little spreader toy […]
We left after Eden’s grad honors night, drove much of the night, slept briefly in the van, and pulled into town a couple hours before graduation was set to begin. It was a long night but driving overnight kept Lach pretty happy. Creed was less thrilled, but he survived. Liberty did it! She’s finished her […]
We’re headed back to Springfield this week for Liberty’s graduation from the tech school there. A friend is having a party for both Liberty and Eden, celebrating each of their graduations. We’ll drive overnight tomorrow night and stay with friends through Sunday. The kids are all over the moon. How Lach does traveling will be […]
I’m a little slow on the uptake, but we huddled in the cold on Easter morning before we left for church to get a new family photo.
