The little groundhog had been coming to visit us in the mornings. Did you know that “woodchuck” is another name for a ground hog? (I thought they were two different animals!) Seeing this ground hog, got me to thinking about the movie Ground Hog Day and comedian actor Bill Murray. Caddy Shack and Stripes are […]

It’s that time of year that marching band kids head off to camp. They attend a one week mandatory overnight camp practicing their music and marching for hours each day.

James recently attended a two week drama camp at the local community college. At the end of the two weeks, the group put on a performance for the parents called “Tall Tales.” They did such a great job! In one skit, James played a very loud and mean “Bully Bob.” He also provided the height […]

James had a chance to try mountain biking last week. I mean real mountain biking – down Snowshed mountain at Killington, VT! This was his instructor John Lamb. He said it was scary, that he had the sensation that he was going to fall, but didn’t. Now he can’t wait to try it again. Have […]

A couple of weeks ago I posted about our eggs that we were attempting to hatch. Just yesterday morning “Lucky” slowly emerged from his/her shell. The process took several hours. There are four eggs left that we are waiting to hatch. By Thursday, if nothing else hatches, we will know they didn’t survive. We have […]

Look what I found at my local library! I couldn’t just leave this fairly new DVD there on the shelf. I checked it out as the boys were leaving so they didn’t see it. The librarian said she would, “Put it in a brown paper bag for me.” You never know what you’ll find at […]
