Sunday, May 18, 2014 share our

...ordinary days.

We are trying to find our groove.

We spent a lovely first week enjoying many, many cups of coffee.  And Mark made it home in time to celebrate my birthday...My 40th birthday...which happened to have fallen on Mother's Day this year.

He and the kids planned a perfect morning (and day) for me.  Breakfast from Panera, coffee, balloons, cards, and gifts.  So many thoughtful gifts.

Note:  The hooded photo bomber
The next day...

Mark started back to work...I went back to work...the kids went back to school...

And we went back to schlepping them to all of their activities.

Hanging out at baseball

Will's on the pitching mound.

More baseball fun.

Battle of the Books competition

Reading with Daddy at the Battle of the Books
And tomorrow will begin our second full week back in routine...and hopefully, to appease my few faithful readers (Isabella and our parents), I'll be back to blogging pretty regularly again.


  1. Looks like you all have settled into a great routine! Happy birthday again-- It looks like you had a fabulous day!!

  2. You better start posting regularly!

  3. F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!!!! Just kidding!

  4. Long time reader, first time poster: you guys look wonderful. Isabella at the battle of the books competition?! Not surprising. Still impressive.
