Promoted! … High School is Next!

There she is! Fresh out of 8th Grade!

Luckiest 9-Year-Old in the World!

Wow! What an outpouring of love and support!

Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes and healthy vibes during — and since — Felicia’s recent procedure. We are so lucky to have a supportive family and an incredible collection of friends.

So, […]

Epic Car Odyssey 2011

It almost didn’t happen. It wasn’t planned. It evolved organically without a definite plan over all 605 miles.

And it started with a missed connection. We were in Oregon for a week with GrandMama & GrandPapa, minding our own business, when the opportunity dropped in our laps. Karen was supposed to join us for […]
