February 19th, 2012 · No Comments

So Rayna joined Girl Scouts this year.  More specifically, she joined Daisies which is the K-1st grade division of the scouts.  She’s had a lot of fun so far and Nicole has had a lot of fun sewing patches onto her vest.  🙂 And now, it’s cookie time.  Unless you in Antarctica, you’ve probably been […]

Kaylee Goes to Preschool

September 13th, 2011 · No Comments

Kaylee went to her first day of Preschool today!  She was pretty low-key about it but I think she was secretly glad to be going to school just like her big sister.  Last night, at the dinner table, I mentioned that her big day at preschool was tomorrow and she just looked at me and […]

Rayna Goes to Kindergarten

September 8th, 2011 · No Comments

If you follow Nicole and I on facebook, twitter, flickr, or just happen to be anywhere within earshot, you already know that Rayna had her first day of Kindergarten today.  I’m feeling a lot of emotions tonight about that but the biggest one is wonderment that our tiny little baby climbed up the steps of […]

We’ve had quite a day today.  First off, it is our wedding anniversary.  Six years ago, Nicole and I got married and it’s been a wonderful ride.  We weren’t planning to do much today, saving ourselves for this weekend when we are going to get away and spend Saturday night in St. Paul.  Just the […]

Playing Catchup

July 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Over the years, we’ve accumulated a lot of pictures and videos that never made it online.  I’m making an effort to rectify that situation.  I’m also correcting some not-so-best practices I used to follow on flickr, which involves reposting a few pictures.  So, you’re going to see a lot of out-of-sequence posting in our timelines […]

Kaylee’s Dreams

July 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Every day, we ask Kaylee if she had any good dreams last night.  And, invariably, she says one of the following:1)  I dreamed of being a superhero!  I could fly and I saved the day! 2)  I dreamed about taking Skittles (our dog) for a walk! Occasionally, she dreams about being a superhero taking Skittles […]

Lincoln: President-Elect

July 20th, 2011 · No Comments

After reading up on President Jackson in my last Civil War reading project book, I returned to the start of the war with Lincoln: President-Elect by Harold Holzer.  At just under 500 pages, it’s a big book with a very narrow focus:  Lincoln’s activities during the four months between his election in November 1860 and […]

Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times

July 13th, 2011 · 1 Comment

The third book I read for my Civil War reading project is Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times by H. W. Brands.  I’ve been meaning to read this book for awhile now, having enjoyed several of Brand’s other books.  Why read a book about Andrew Jackson for a study of the Civil War?  Because Jackson: […]
