    Milestones, milestones, milestones!  I feel like this is my life chant right now.  With an almost three year old and an almost one year old, we are witnessing so many exciting changes every day. Specifically this week, Clyde nearly brought me to tears after breakfast one morning as he walked into the kitchen looking very ‘school ready.’  He had gotten his backpack and filled it with a variety of cooking utensils and

    May is a busy month over here!  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written a proper post and I’m feeling slightly out of practice. The first half of this month has flown by. We’ve celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and Mother’s Day. We’ve had friends welcome new, beautiful babies and others that are in the home stretch of their pregnancies!  I get to meet the newest addition for one of my

  • the Saturday Sprint – Mother’s Day Edition: it takes a village!

    Posted on May 14, 2017

    Happy Mother’s Day! I realize that this edition of the Saturday Sprint is coming a day late but I wanted to take this opportunity, on Mother’s Day, to acknowledge all of the amazing females in our lives. I have talked before about our willingness to ask for help.  So often, it really is the only way that we’re able to accomplish so many of the activities that we strive for.

    HELLO! Oh how I would love to shout that from a mountain top this morning.  I’m going on day 7 of having no voice.  It finally came back yesterday enough that people can hear what I’m saying but prior to that I was at a whisper for the entire week.  This morning is a little better yet so I have faith that I’m on the mend. As it happened, last

    Hello and happy Saturday! This week I spent lots of time reminiscing about our long weekend away with family.  We love to be home and host for special events and holidays but it’s also a treat to be in someone else’s home and have beds made and meals planned for you.  We enjoyed some free time to run, play at the park and of course – hunt for eggs!  Can you

    Hello and Happy Easter from Barrie! We took a road trip yesterday morning to spend the long weekend with Adam’s family.  Our plan is always to wake up, load the car and hit the road so when the kids woke up at 5am, we decided to make lemonade and hustle out the door.  Being on the road by 7am got us here in time for a late lunch and a

    Good morning!  Is that sunshine I see?  My calendar says that the first day of spring was weeks ago but I think Mother Nature finally got caught up today.  This winter sure felt relentless.  I’m looking so forward to stepping outside without having to layer myself and two others. I’ve been pulling out spring and summer clothes for the boys only to realize how much they grew over the winter.

    Good evening and happy Saturday!  It was an exciting morning in our house because Super Dad was home from having been away at a conference this week.  The days passed much more smoothly than I had anticipated but we’re glad to be back to full strength. This time last week, Adam and I were enjoying some 1-on-1 time with each of the boys.  Jude got dressed in Dad’s staple outfit – plaid

    Happy Saturday, gang! This weekly re-cap post has me feeling lots of feels… I’m enjoying the time to consciously look back on what we were up to but it’s a little startling how quickly the time is passing. Fortunately, this week went by at a much slower pace than last week. (If you missed the re-cap of our wild March break week it’s here.) On Monday, I kicked things off with a

  • Saturday errrrr Sunday Sprint

    Posted on March 19, 2017

    This week was a wild one!  Filled with all good things but it is Saturday night at 7:30pm and I am sitting down by myself for what feels like the first time to catch my breath.  Hence why this week’s edition of the Saturday Sprint is brought to you by Sunday.  I feel like weekends are the place for grace though, don’t you?  On Friday you can write yourself the
