Wordless Wednesday - - The Soccer Ninja

May 14, 2014

Another soccer season is in the books and Troy's skills have gotten tremendously better than when Tim and Chris coached when he was four years old. There are still some kids on the field who clearly don't know what is happening or quite frankly, don't care.

 My DSLR camera was out of service for the last two months but I finally got in repaired. $200 later and reunited with my favorite camera, I captured the last two soccer games of the season.

 So much for this post being wordless.

Giving the Tooth Fairy a BOGO

May 5, 2014

Last night, we decided to remove both of Troy's front teeth to save the Tooth Fairy a trip. It took $5 bribe per tooth. Keeping with tradition of how he lost his first tooth, we shot it out with a Nerf gun.

The second one was more stubborn so we tied some dental floss around it and I yanked it out. I can now say that I will never be a dentist. It was such a gross experience.

His face will forever look different once the new teeth come in.



Picture Day - First Grade Edition

April 1, 2014

Just like we have done since he knew what "Say Cheese" meant, we practice smiles on the morning of picture day.

Troy had lots of smiles today as he was also recognized for being Student of the Month at his school.

Hello there, 2014

January 2, 2014

The conclusion of the holiday season has happened with the celebration of a new year in our house. This weekend, I plan on taking down all the Christmas decorations and adjust to lack of sparkling white lights I see from my chair when I watch television.

2013 was a good year for all intents and purposes. So was 2012, and 2011 and 2010 and ... you get the point. The years haven’t been perfect nor did we go without some missteps, fumbles and unexplainable loss for my step-kids. However, I’m a firm believer that we make the most of what we’re given and you can only learn from your mistakes and move on.

Since we’re obsessed with making new year’s resolutions.
Here are mine:
1. Adopt a healthier lifestyle.
2. Spend more time taking photos with my fancy camera and not my iPhone.
3. Write an actual letter and mail it to a friend once a month.

That’s it.
