You know how Facebook reminds you of old status updates with those Time Hop photo memories?

The kids and I made it back from Boston today – and this fabulously sunny day was the perfect welcome home. Our Harvard AMP and Boston Trip Fall 2013 was a five day whirlwind visit to see Phil during his break from the Harvard AMP. As a reference for future visiting families, Harvard puts together a lovely program for the visiting families. Let me guide you through our jam-packed visit…Read More

Our little giant, PJ, took control of the suppertime table prayer tonight. True to form, he made it all his own. He’s never going to use a stock prayer or a churchy phrase to talk to his Lord. No way. Even so, he managed to surprise us with his special PJ way of connecting with…Read More
PJ is starting to learn multiplication. There’s only one way to do it – repetition. Recently, I found an awesome app for multiplication. It lets me pick just the numbers that PJ is learning and he can learn at his own pace. It’s called MultiFlow. Let me introduce you. Here’s what the app looks like…Read More
PJ made use of his time in church to quiz his cousin about his love life. At least the last question is about a sacrament. Still growing…Read More
