Boys in Motion: Eli is Eggcellent

Boys in Motion: Eli is Eggcellent

This is what happens when Gabriel needs a bit of help with his homework and I loose track of Eli for two minutes.  Literally two minutes.  Apparently he training to be a boxer old school style…thank heavens I got to him before he decided to drink that mess! Today I’m […]

Perfect Eli

Perfect Eli

Occupational Therapists come to the house several times a week for Nathan.  Always in the morning before he boards the bus for Pre-K, and while the older boyz are at school.  Leaving just Eli with no one to play with.  More often than not he mimics the therapies.  He lines […]

Indoor Smores

Indoor Smores

The boyz went to school yesterday after an unexpected five day break due to the snow and ice.  Then it snowed again last night, but we only had a two hour delay this morning.  Which is good because by the looks of next weeks forecast we are going to need […]

Eli’s Alone Time

Eli’s Alone Time

Today is snow day #3 in the course of that many weeks.  After a three day holiday weekend I was ready for that big yellow school bus to pull up this morning, but alas the snow and sleet overnight thwarted my plans.  Now, in a moment of relative calm while […]

Potty Training Boy #4

Potty Training Boy #4

We have started potty training Eli.  Truth be told, potty training is one of my least favorite parenting duties.  Ranks right up there with holding down a  child for stitches.  Except potty training is a long drawn out process.  Stitches are done in a few minutes. Anyway, we have embarked […]

Eli Goes Sledding

Eli Goes Sledding

As promised, Daddy D took the boyz out in the snow yesterday.  Tomorrow I’ll share pics of all five of my favorite guys.  But while I was watching them I was drawn most to the squeals, smiles and shouts of Eli.  This was his first full blown sledding experience. Daddy […]

The Boyz Solo on Sunday

The Boyz Solo on Sunday

Sunday I went to a scrapbooking event at my favorite scrapbooking guru’s house.  Daddy D stayed home with all four boyz.  They spent the afternoon enjoying our new lawn.  And Seth practiced his photography skills.  Not bad for a 10 year old!  I enjoyed looking through the photographic evidence of […]

Exclusively Eli

Exclusively Eli

Every school day come 11:42 a bus comes to pick up Nathan.  Once we wave goodbye to boy #3 on the bus, it is me and Eli for the rest of the day.  I had high hopes of getting to spend time alone with my littlest son.  Turns out he […]

Countdown to School

Tuesday is coming.  I am counting the days, even the hours (shhh! I am counting the minutes) until the boyz head off to school.  Seth and Gabriel start bright and early Tuesday morning.  I take Nathan to orientation on Tuesday afternoon.  Then come Wednesday, half a day every school day […]
