I haven't been able to work with my hands enough lately. I love getting in the kitchen, digging into a craft or a tutorial and creating something. So I set aside a day to get back to that, and this was the result. Emoji desserts and pumpkin mousse cups!
My 6-year-old is quite the little chef, so I often to set aside time to cook up fun creations with him. This is a...
School is starting back up! For us that means that at about 2pm every Monday through Friday we have a preschooler, transitional kindergartener and a 1st grader all rolling through the door demanding food at once. That and telling the legends of the playground. Very similar to a show involving dragons, armies and intrigue...just smaller.
It's back to school time here! People frequently ask how the kids manage school when our business requires a lot of family travel. I shared some of our frustrations and schooling solutions last year. We've taken a blended approach by keeping our son in public school and using the district's 'independent study' program when we feel it's appropriate, opting out of certain things that don't work for him and supplementing with our own curriculum at home. There were a few bumps along the way, but we got into an awesome groove by the end of the year. We've been continuing our at-home lessons through the summer and it's been such a joy. Sometimes I really do think that I could do this homeschool thing full-time.
There are a lot of tasty things you can do with BBQ. One of the great things about BBQ is that even with very little experience, you can make it your own. There are burgers, dogs, big sausages, fish, chicken, vegetables, and on and on. Basically, anything that suits you is possible.
There's nothing much more everyday American than BBQ. Well, maybe BBQ on the 4th of July. There’s something really patriotic about going above and beyond to make your BBQ get-together stand out.
Father’s Day is one of those "holidays" that doesn't really garner a large emotional response. Not from many children or from fathers themselves, for that matter. It mostly winds up becoming a day among so many others with the cliche tie or "world's best dad" mugs along with a hastily chosen card. The faint obligation of the day lends itself to not being taken as seriously. And men, being men, aren’t keen on going through the motions. Usually, it’s nicer just to eliminate the formality.
Our first son is only in kindergarten and already he is asking about summer break. I mean, sure, it was bound to happen at some point but getting the “when is school out” blues is a bit premature at this point. He just turned six, for crying out loud! Then again, summer is the season of children.
The simplest way to explain how and why we started a blog is the hot dog.Stay with me here.Yes, sir. We actually started Someday...
Nate doesn't drink. And as much as I love a good glass of wine, I'm not one to bust open a whole bottle for myself...
