Flashback Friday


Oh, where has my baby gone?

This bright-eyed baby of five years ago?

He thinks he’s grown-up enough to go to kindergarten in the fall!

Maybe I should have taken Tad’s advice and just put bricks on all the kids’ heads.

King In His Own Head


It’s the last day of school for the older three!!!

They are very excited, but it’s going to be a very short day – only 2 hours at school.  Ane has already told me that she’s going to come home crying.

Anyway, while we wait for those pictures…

Ane had a final project in English, where she and her group did a scene from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”  Ane played Oberon, and brought home the crown and scepter that one of the other students had made for her to wear – which was made out of an old set of metal blinds.

Points for creativity and recycling!

Anyway, Rerun fell in love with it and insisted on wearing it himself.

Why the wiffle ball on top of the scepter?

He’s King Felix, that’s why.

Preschool Graduate!


It happened.  It actually happened.

My baby has graduated from 2+ years of preschool.

Yes, I teared up, despite my best efforts not to.  I attended the “graduation party” in his morning class, complete with slide show, and then Thumper stayed for his afternoon class.  We got to watch all the kids leave on the buses, with teachers, paras, and therapists blowing bubbles, cheering, and making noise with maracas and tambourines.  And I got emotional then, too.

The good news is that he won’t be going far…. we have been told that Thumper will attend Tad’s old school next door!  And we already know most of everyone there!  YAAAAAAAAY!

But my baby isn’t much of a baby anymore.

Happy Father’s Day 2018


Here is a bunch of monkeys with their Dad.

We had a very happy and sunny Father’s Day together, and I think the Webmaster knows just how much these guys love him.
