Time just keeps marching on and Lily started 5th grade this year. Last year our school moved the 5th grade to the middle school so now she’s a middle schooler. I still can’t quite comprehend that. Now that she’s in 5th grade she’s required to have her own Chromebook, a trapper keeper, has a band […]
I recently built a bat house. It even has a Bat Girl sticker. Since I hear bats eat mosquitos, I thought it may be a good idea to attract a few. Plus we had a bat living in one of our vents a year or two ago so I thought it’d be easy to attract […]
Happy Birthday to my sweet girl. This time it’s double digits! Lily had a great time with her family and friends over the past few days. First, we had grandparents and uncles up for some yard games and ice cream cake. Then we had a family day. Followed by a trip to Valleyfair with a […]

We’ve been seeing those videos of people wrapping cats for Christmas so we decided to try it ourselves with our kitten. Overall, I call it a success. He was pretty much wrapped, didn’t draw any blood, and, for the most part, allowed me to do whatever. This turned out much better than we expected.
Lily turns 9 today and life just keeps getting better. Her optimism and her love for animals makes each day a fun adventure.
It’s been 6 days since I posted to, or read social media. I took a vacation and actually disconnected; well, sort of disconnected. I still used GPS and took photos on my phone, but no Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram updates. I thought it’d be hard but it turns out that it wasn’t so bad and […]
