Junie B. Jones

Lena brought a book home from school. She was so excited to tell me all about it. “It’s Junie B. Jones!”

She then proceeded to ask one of her friends if he’d had the pleasure of reading Junie B. yet and then read the first paragraph out loud to me.

Then this happened…

Unfortunately, I’ve been warned about Junie B. Jones and that maybe she’s not the best book friend to have. Lena herself said “Junie says bad words” and someone else described her as “rude”. A quick Google searched also pulled up a book review titled “The Assassination of Junie B. Jones.” Uh-oh. Might be time to find a new book.

Dinner Dates

We have a regular dinner date with some friends of ours. We hit it off with them the first time we met. Gus and Adrian weren’t part of our families yet, so it’s extra fun to see how all of the kids play together now. They get along so well and I’m always thankful for the adult company.

[Lena got these glasses as part of her Sonic Wacky Pack. The suit her. I’m calling her Looney Luna Lovegood, which I consider quite a compliment.

This little man doesn’t always keep up with the big kids, but he enjoys when he does.

As if fun times weren’t enough, I also enjoy the ease of bedtime after all of that running around.

iPhone dump

Apparently, I lost the cord for my camera. Sort of. So, in the meantime, I’m going to share some of my favorite recent photos that I took with my phone.

He picked out these nails as a prize at school last week.


Sleeping baby.


And another sleeping baby.


Deep in thought.


And, last one, she has to read a book to two people for her homework and was so happy to read it to him.



Spring feels like it could be here. It was 81 today! I love, love, love these warm days. I’ve been spending more time outside and less time in front of my computer– sorry!



Warm days and playing outside make everyone happy and tired.



…but, it’s down to a low of 31 tonight, with that silly little flurry icon next to it. Oh well, it won’t last long now, right?
