Family Night

Can you remember the last time your family had a night in together? A night that did not have a scheduled practice, meeting, volunteer hours, or even a grocery trip. Once a week we strive to have a night like that.   So what does it take to make it happen? It takes tons of coordination…

The Name Game

How did YOU choose your kids’ names? Here’s our story. My husband and I have two boys, 10 years and one day apart.  When we began brainstorming for the oldest’s name, we were young and carried out the ritualistic research associated with the first child.  My husband’s first name is Albert, but he goes by…

Entertaining Through The Ages

If you have read any of my posts before then you already know that I have a twelve year old and a two year old and I always tell people this is because God has a sense of humor and, luckily, a plan.  Our children are literally 10 years and one day apart.  I think…

Caffeine = Mom Juice
