It's a big change for us. Preschool is over, Kindergarten is here! Wonder Boy successfully navigated his second day today and just beamed as he paced the living room and retold the story of Jack & Jill with his freshly pasted puppets.

I've been thinking about this blog and it's original purpose -- to keep me from losing my grip on reality while somehow bringing up my children -- and I see it's still quite necessary. I was happier when blogging before. I looked for humor in my days, purpose in my suffering, and always looked left-right-left before crossing streets and bike lanes. I miss that.

It's time to capture the miles in my shoes again. Let the Adventure begin!

Glutton for Punishment (Or Gluten for Punishment?)

Full on gluten cooking happened here today. I did it for and with my 9yo. It's killing me. I can smell the @#$@# cookies cooling. It's a very good thing that I fear what dairy and gluten together can do to me... because without that, I'd have eaten half the pan of cookies by now.

An Amazing Day in Arizona

1 - I has been raining for days. This is amazing in AZ.

2 - I actually walked out into the garage and found, without searching, the only umbrella we own.

3 - We own an umbrella.

All of these are very strange and amazing in their own right. To have all three coincide? Freaky.
