"Daddy?" Miles asked as soon as I came downstairs this morning. "Can I have some glue?" I didn't know what this was all about, but I was certain it was too early for it. "Why do you need glue?" I asked. He directed my attention to an art project he was working on. Yes, his … Continue reading Year 5, Day 282
Year 5, Day 237
After the slowest start of any morning this whole trip (I mean, this IS a vacation), we headed out to the beach around midday today. Yes, we've been to the beach a couple times this week, but this was the first time we went with the intention of setting our stuff down in one spot … Continue reading Year 5, Day 237

Year 4, Day 192
We all got up bright and early today so Jaclyn could participate in her first 10K (!), Charlotte's Around the Crown race. Miles in particular was really excited to go...until he learned that he wasn't going to be able to run with Mommy. He took the news predictably well. Nevertheless, once the race started and … Continue reading Year 4, Day 192

Predator and prey.
Year 3, Day 186
As Jaclyn felt it necessary to mention about fifty times before 10 AM, today was "Boys Day" for me and Miles, as Jaclyn was getting some much-needed alone time this morning. And what, exactly, did this mean for us? Well first, it meant we were coordinating our outfits: The pizza shirts are always a big … Continue reading Year 3, Day 186
