So it’s Wednesday night, and that means only one thing. . . Mommy and Curly Cook time! Each Wednesday, Paul, GingerSnap and Joy Boy have activities/meetings to attend, so Curly Cook and I make the night special. First we read a book together and then we do something fun. The book we are reading right… Read More What We Do Every Wednesday Night!
Today was a tough day for me. It was actually a tough week last week, and I don’t want it creeping into this week. Thankfully I have had a little help from my friends and family. I got a good morning text from my dear friend. I saw it right when I needed it most!… Read More Tough Day Made Better . . .
Hey guys! It’s Joy Boy writing. This is my first blog post ever! My mom had a little accident, which lead to her original blog for today getting deleted. But then she had a prompting to have me write it. So that is what I am doing. Today was a great Sunday. It all started… Read More Sunday and the Priesthood
Today was a busy, but a good day. Paul played Indiana Jones and took the JAS (The Young Single Adults) of our Stake on a hike. The same hike that our family took early last month. Except this time the waterfalls weren’t as spectacular. But he said it was still a nice experience. He walked… Read More Saturday is a Special Day!
Curly Cook only wanted one thing this week! And that was a playdate with her best friend. This little one starts school again on Monday, so we needed to sneak in an afternoon of fun while we could. She was SO BRAVE to ride with me, a non-Spanish speaker, as I drove her quite a… Read More Playdate with a Best Friend
This is Jorge! He’s our swimming teacher. He comes to our home, every Thursday, to give us our swimming lesson. He kicks our fannies, but we love him for it! He’s a really great teacher! Thanks Jorge! Happy Thursday,
Paul was spontaneous this month and planned a “field trip” for us and our friends, Fran and Sarah. We left on a Friday afternoon and stopped half-way in La Fortuna for the night. We had a yummy dinner, with gelato for dessert, then stayed overnight in one of the many hotels that Paul’s new company… Read More Cocoa and Cows . . .
I love it when my kids react differently to the same experience. It helps me remember that we are all very unique and different people, even in a family. Curly Cook found a “gross and icky bug” 🐛 on Joy Boy’s rusty, hand-me-down bike. Joy Boy thought the bug was SUPER cool and even knew… Read More Bugs
I woke up today and decided to join Paul and the littlest ones on their bi-weekly trip to our favorite Farmer’s Market, The Cenada. I asked Joy Boy to document our trip. Enjoy! He is one talented photographer! Paul treated Curly Cook and I to a Pipa Fría (Cold Coconut water). It was yummy! We… Read More The Cenada
This morning I woke up late! It was a late night for us . . . 12:45 a.m. (hence the reason not blog post for yesterday). So I slept in until 8:35 a.m. I felt so bad for Paul and my friend Fran, because they both HAD to wake up early for work. I had… Read More Reminders
