Spring

Wasn’t I just telling you that you should probably be reading Nippertown?  Well, I have to plug them again for sharing the link to the live webcam of a hummingbird nest, complete with hatching eggs!  How fun is that?  I would like to show my children, but they are outside playing, and I can’t exactly … [Read more…]

Ah, Another Week o’ Fun

As you may have guessed, I was not able to make my house presentable and create a quality post before the 4 o’clock birthday party.  And now I’m feeling rawther exhausted because I ice skated for about 2 hours yesterday, had people over until 10:30-which-felt-like-11:30 last night, and, last but not least, I managed to … [Read more…]

Pictures & Circus

Another fabulous day!  I hope that you’re all having fun playing outside!

The Children’s Museum of Science and Technology has camp-ins that cost $30/child and include activities, a planetarium show, a light snack, and breakfast.  Individuals can come to a … [Read more…]

This Week

So, weather.com says that we’re going to possibly hit 50 on Wednesday!  Woo, hoo!   We are so getting outside.  I wish that I were with-it enough to provide you with a list of playgrounds and a constantly-updated snow-meltedness index.  Maybe that will be the next big project?  Umm, yeah.  Do you see this?  Clearly, I … [Read more…]

Miscellaney

Friday was just one of those days for me. It started with the morning bike ride, which turned out to be too cold.  Also, how discouraging do you think it is that my 5-year-old questions my ability to find her nursery school? I have a tremendously poor sense of direction (which, if you’ve read the … [Read more…]
