Cooking with Oliver

Oliver had to complete a cooking assignment for Spanish class.  He chose beef enchiladas.  The boys both ate them for dinner and they're "brother approved".  The video editing isn't the greatest (by little ol' me), but the homework has been submitted!

Fun to see him enjoy his homework, literally and figuratively!



Taking after his father?

18 years


A beautiful fall day, not unlike today...
two hearts were joined together.

Parade of Bands Concert 2014

First concert of the new school year and the kids rocked it!  Henry participated in both Concert Band and in Marching Band.  It always gives me goosebumps to sit and listen to the talent that this school has sitting on stage.

For those who didn't get a chance to see it in person, I was able to record a few video clips and will share them below.  Enjoy!

This is one my favorite concerts every year.  Way to keep up the musical passion & performing, Henry!!

new school year

The boys are beginning 8th (Oliver) and 10th (Henry) this year.  Oliver didn't have a whole lot of positives to share when he returned home after his first day, Henry was the opposite.  Funny how they can be so different in attitudes and view points, yet are the product of the same household/child-rearing.  Guess it really does go to show that they're individuals in every sense of the word!

I'm sure they'll both have great success this year and get through the rough bumps of the first week of school ~ thankful that it's only 4 short days too!


Henry said this morning that the thing he was looking forward to the most was a nap after school.  Ha!  All those lazy summer days will take a while to work out of his system.
