When You Get Sick on Vacation


We have been in Florida for a little over a week, and most of that time we have been at Disney!  We’ve done Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and EPCOT – and we did it all last week in a monsoon.  Seriously, the rain was crazy!! I am really glad that we are able [Read On]

What Being at Disney Taught me About Being a Mom


I am a mom. I mean, I think that is pretty obvious, since I talk about my daughters and our hopefully soon to be adopted son in pretty much every single blog post.  I usually don’t think about being a mom, I just AM one. I do what needs to be done, when it needs [Read On]

One More Reason Why #DisneyWorld Rocks!


Bella tends to be a little nervous when we go to crowded areas, or someplace that she doesn’t know.  It helps when she has a *friend* to help her cuddle with and talk out her fears to.  When we got to Downtown Disney on Saturday we ended up going into the HUGE Disney store that [Read On]

Classical Conversations Review – Week 2


This week we studied the Pilgrims, specifically the Mayflower Compact and why it was so important to the Pilgrims survival.  Sophie grasped very quickly that in order for the pilgrims to survive in a new land they all had to stick together and, more importantly, work together.  Both girls were surprised by how rough the [Read On]

We managed to make almost seven years before American Girl entered our house.  Sophie was never into baby dolls, and Bella loves her baby animals and friends – but not dolls so much.  I was thinking that we were possibly past the doll phase (much to my MIL’s chagrin) when the American Girl catalog landed [Read On]
