I have lots and lots of pictures to post; but I have lost my camera. Life has been crazy with sick kids. The cold or whatever that we all caught in Texas lingered and lingered for Sophie and Ben in the form of runny noses and coughs. And Sophie just didn’t seem to get back […]

At three and a half Bella is still not quite willing to give up her afternoon nap. And since Sophie and Ben both need an afternoon nap (and often me too) it is convenient for me when she decides to sleep. Yet too often the consequence of this convenience is that she isn’t really ready […]
Ben and me with ashes I didn’t mean to go away for a week unannounced. I did in fact write an announcement that I’d be breaking for the first week of Lent. But somehow it didn’t get posted. Oops. And then of course since I’d turned off the computer I didn’t notice. Mea culpa! I’m […]
Here’s my list of must-read Lenten blog posts: First, see Karen Edmisten’s wonderful omnibus post on A Meaningful Lent. Then check out Conversion Diary for a Lenten reading discussion.

Praying for my sister-in-law Evelyn, who is going to be induced this morning. May she have a safe and easy labor and delivery. I can’t wait to meet my new niece!!!
“Gina is my little girl.” Gina is the first and foremost among Bella’s coterie of imaginary friends. She’s Bella’s daughter and appeared at about the time when Ben was born. Bella told stories of being in the hospital for Gina’s delivery. Sometimes Gina is a dol. Other times she seems to be in invisible person […]
