Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]

Fall semester is over, and I am presently enjoying the second of two consecutive days off. I was going to wait to blog about my fall semester until after grades have been posted, but decided that I am proud of myself regardless of grades.

Well, our family’s annual end of summer cold has descended upon us. First me, I brought it home from work I’m sure, now Jack. If I’m lucky it will skip over Jeremy and grammy.  Poor Jack is all stuffy with a low grade fever. But he’s in a very good mood overall. We’re supposed to […]

Jack had his monthly visit with his occupational therapist on Monday, she says keep up the good work. She expects him to start walking anytime now, but no hurry. Jacks teething saga continues, he’s got three teeth on the bottom now, and one on top. Plus another top one has just barely started cutting. For […]

 Yesterday marked my second Mother’s Day. I found this card on Jacks incubator last Mother’s Day. It was put there by the ‘sunshine committee’, a group of nurses at the hospital where Jack was born. They make heartwarming things like this for the NICU parents on Holidays. How amazing is that!? As if NICU […]

On Saturday, Mr. Jack went on another long car trip. It was two hours both ways, and he was good as gold. The purpose of our adventure was a family reunion of sorts, and a tree dedication for Grandpa Rob. Grandpas Sister Elaine and late Husband Jim, have a park dedicated to them in the […]
