Since Alex started walked almost 4 years ago, we have been on a never ending journey of boo-boos, band-aids and¬† ice packs. When he started hockey this year, I was worried. He had never been ice skating before […]

Since Alex was born, I have wanted to make him love being outdoors and in nature. Since his first summer, I have wanted to take him camping, but being at home is hard enough with a baby, let alone in the middle of the woods. At the beginning of this summer, Alex and I were […]

Surprise! I am actually cooking these days. Before I finished working for summer, it was almost impossible to find the time to cook anything that didn’t involve a microwave. Now that I am home, it’s a lot easier to get some good food on the table and still manage to get all of my studying […]
