Rice Table, Walking, and His First Drive-Thru

We bought a sand table back in the fall to use as a multi-purpose table for the girls. We’ve done different things with it but the favorite activity, which is enjoyed by Elizabeth (and both boys when given the right circumstances!) is rice play. She loves it! But the problem is that she gets bored … Continue reading Rice Table, Walking, and His First Drive-Thru

Back to School and Goofy Girls

And when I brought … Continue reading He Got the Job (and then He Didn’t)

Hobby Lobby and the Pink Pig

Yesterday afternoon, Maggie and I went to Hobby Lobby with the little girls. They were both due for a nap so they fell asleep on the way. I only wanted Elizabeth to have thirty minutes but that was enough time for me to run into Kohl's and for Maggie run into TJ Maxx, in turn. … Continue reading Hobby Lobby and the Pink Pig
