Daily Grind

A little snippet of our Daily Grind:

Kids walk in the door after school. 

Michael, “Mom what is that smell? What IS that? Why does it stink so bad?”

Me, “I baked homemade bread today.”

Michael, “Oh. Mom, I don’t want to hurt your feelings but your bread smells really bad. Can you make the smell go away?!!”

Me, “Elise, do you think Mom’s bread smells bad?”

I hold the loaf of still warm bread under her nose.

Elise, “I can’t smell anything, the boogers in my nose are blocking the smell.”

I know I haven’t posted much lately. Things are busy and the blog hasn’t been top priority. I will do better to make more time for it because 10, 20, 30 years from now I am going to want to share stories like this with the kids.

As for photos… I still take them. I take photos all the time, I just haven’t been great about uploading them. Here is a photo from this past weekend when it was a beautiful 50 degrees. We trekked over to Hastings for the afternoon with Beth in tow. It felt so wonderful to let the sun warm us from the outside in.
