Paradise

Just a few days after school was out we packed our bags and headed to Hawaii with the Hirschman clan. I actually had a few people comment on our upcoming trip saying that it’s a bummer to go to Hawaii in the summer when the weather is so nice here. Really?! When is it ever a bummer to go to …

Ferry Rides

“Can I go up to the deck? Please, please, can I Momma?” he begged. It’s a 15-minute ferry ride, 20 minutes tops. After years of going on ferries, why is it such a big deal? We traveled on this same ferry on our way to the wedding. The whole family went up to the deck, we took pictures, and we …

Never say never

I have a good friend who decided to start running when she turned 30 and then proceeded to run a marathon. I’ve always respected people like that; those who try something new and then really get into it. She has since run many other races and on occasion has asked if I’d be interested in running a race with her, to …

He’s got my number

I remember my dad saying “I’ve got your number” several times throughout my childhood. This meant that he had me figured out and I couldn’t outsmart him.

Life has been crazy, and not just the ordinary crazy. Josie fell 15 feet out of a tree, which required an overnight stay at …

Play dates

I’ve never really liked the term play date and I’m not sure why. Maybe because I’ve just never liked play dates. What’s the expectation for a play date? Just because our kids want to be friends, does that mean that the adults have to act interested in getting to know each other as well? We’re not the same as kids, …

Recovery

I started writing this post on January 10. It began with the title and that’s as far as I got. I feel like I’m still in the recovery season from Christmas and our trip to Mexico. Actually, I’m the only one who hasn’t gotten sick…yet. After we cleaned up from Christmas, we moved into packing and preparing for our church’s …

Magical and Holy

Santa is a big deal. He’s a big deal if you’re a kid and believe he’s real. He’s a big deal if you’re a baby and your parents force you to sit on his lap and take a picture even though you don’t want to cuddle a stranger with a long scary beard. He’s a big deal if you have …
