Somehow We Manage

I'm so excited (and a little nervous) to introduce you to my next blogging endeavor -
Somehow We Manage

As for Spoonful, it's been a great run, but it's time. I will eventually print it all out and turn this blog into coffee table books for my grandchildren. Thank you, dear readers, for being with me all these years. Please join me on my new site - www.somehowwemanage.com

I'm starting fresh and with more purpose and direction. Read all about it here.

Is Anybody Out There?

Heelllooo out there! Just wanted to check in a say I'm alive.

Thanks to all of you who have checked on us during my spontaneous blogging sabbatical.

We are well, covered up with kids, and eagerly awaiting a change of seasons. Fall!

My older two are loving preschool. Capt' Steve is working hard to feed all of us. And I am just trying to keep a semblance of order around here.

We are really in the thick of things, and I think it's going to be this way indefinitely. I suppose my priorities have shifted (away from blogging), but I'm not totally hanging it up. My goal lately has been to focus on the basics- resting, eating, sleeping, exercising, and watching Breaking Bad.

At some point, I'm going to work my blog back into my schedule, but for now you can expect a lot less of me.

It hurts me more than it hurts you.

Maybe I will at least post some pictures every now and then.



Laurie and Zinnias

This Zinnia field belongs to a hometown acquaintance. They kindly allowed us to take pictures and snip a few flowers for our Fourth of July festivities

It was her idea to put a flower in her hair.


Playing in the Shade

There are some workers at my house this week, re-doing a bathroom. I've tried to stay out of the house as much as possible. Today we went swimming at my sister's, and then afterward we drove around downtown. Stephen said he wanted to "see the city, Mama."

We happened upon a Burger King and drove through to get a 50 cent vanilla cone - best deal of the summer!

I love this picture of Laurie and her little friends playing in the shade after the pool. 


4th Pics + Dog Days

I keep saying this is a summer that defines summer.

We have spent hours at the pool. We have slept late and worn our p.j.'s well into mid morning. We have enjoyed our fair share of tomatoes, peaches, corn, etc. Summer 2013, you have been sooo good!

Here is a sample of pictures from our 4th of July celebration spent at my aunt and uncle's lake "cabin." It was a great time, complete with chicken fingers, ribs, deviled eggs, homemade ice cream, and a special visit from our dearest family friends, Nate and Beth Bradford!

Laurie spent 5 straight hours in the pool that day - no lie.

We are officially in the dog days now. I'm somewhat beside myself with things to do with the babies on these long, hot afternoons. George napping in his own crib is a priority, and so we stay cooped up for the latter half of the day. Around 2pm I like to rev up the AC and French press a cup of coffee.  I also love to listen to the Dave Ramsey show. It's been a long time favorite of mine. And I love radio in general. Capt' Steve and I both do.

Hope all you readers out there are having a great summer! Still trying to figure out how to blog a little more regularly like I did in the good ol' days.

Back soon, hopefully.
