John's Injury

John’s Injury

John holding Micah for the first time since he got injured John had been complaining that his neck hurt for a little while.  He thinks he kinked it while feeding the baby at night.  Then last weekend we went to a friend’s birthday party at Sky Zone (an indoor trampoline center).  We played quite a few games of dodge ball. … Read more →

Almost every Saturday morning John plays Ultimate Frisbee.  When we had just Curtis I would tag along and play with Curtis at the park.  Then we had Alessia and I went a few more times but then decided to just stay home.

Camping at Mt. Charleston

John decided to take the older kids camping a week before school started.  The kids had way too much energy and needed to get outdoors and run around.  We debated for a real little amount of time if we would all go but then decided that the baby was too little and it would just be miserable for all of… Read more →

4 Children

4 Children

John and I have 4 children.  4!  That is a lot.  Sometimes when I go out with all four I feel weird.  Never when we are home do I feel like 4 is a lot.  Okay, at bedtime I think 4 is a lot.  I remember when I went to the doctor for the first time with Gianluca’s pregnancy and… Read more →

First Day of School-2012-2013

  Monday was the first day of school.  Everyone but Curtis has been counting down the days until its arrival.
