Snow, driving and cooking

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

It was snowing when I left for NIA class and I woke up late, so I missed one song. We were working on the spine and posture. Back at home the girls were watching Dr. Who when Bethany’s counselor called. She just wanted to chat and must have asked Bethany what she was doing – [...]

Party time!

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

Hannah was the one who noticed that the party was on the 16th and Bethany is 16, I didn’t plan it that way, it just happened. We got a DJ party at the rec center, they had the place decorated with polka dot table cloths, balloons, banners, candy and glow sticks on the tables, pizza, [...]

Amelia and Cleo

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Last night we went to a lecture on Amelia Earhart’s journey around the globe. But, this wasn’t the original Amelia. This Ms. Earhart has been a Denver traffic and news reporter for many years. Last year she took a break from that and recreated the journey around the world of the original Amelia. She took [...]

The Birthday

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Bethany and I went to the DMV to get her permit. I drove there and forgot the logs, so we went back home. Then when we got back, I had forgotten to bring any ID for her, so back home I went. Finally, I had everything we needed, but she missed the written test by [...]


Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

That was the high today. A lot of things happen when it is 2. De-icer stops working. Ice ends up on the inside of your window. Nose hairs freeze. Your steering wheel turns into the same temperature as outside and you have to drive with gloves on. And, if you heat your den to a [...]

Getting crafty at the library

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

Bethany took her Biology final today and worked on her music project. Grace did math (functions) and grammar (irregular verbs) and reading. Hannah took a spelling test (missed one word), did math and reading. I got my Christmas cards in and got them all addressed and stamped. Hannah and Bethany walked up to King Soopers [...]

Breaking records

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

We broke the record low high on Tuesday and Wednesday night we broke the record low low. It was -12. Back in 1882 it was -4 on that day. I don’t mind the cold except that it means less snow, the snow is smaller when the air is colder, so it might snow for 3 [...]

Fun Friday

Friday, October 17th, 2014

The girls slept in since they were up late, then we got ready for the Constitution lecture at the library. It wasn’t all about the Constitution, instead it was stories of our country from the beginnings to the Revolutionary war. We heard about the Pilgrims and Puritans, about brave men who fought across a wintry [...]

‘A day in the life’ {Thursday}

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

OK, so I could have picked any day this week. Monday was full of school and Chinese class for Hannah. Tuesday was more school and a walk at Hudson gardens. Wednesday is always light because of Park day, so I chose today. Yeah, I knew that we had a concert at the library and I [...]

Klezmer music, SAME and chutes

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

We did some school this morning and then left before lunch to get downtown for music at the library. Today was Klezmer music with a clarinet and cello. So, here is what we learned: the word klezmer comes from a combination of Hebrew words: kli, meaning “tool, or utensil” and zemer, meaning “to make music”; [...]


Saturday, July 12th, 2014

Last night we had an awesome praise and worship night at church. The only thing bad about over an hour of singing at the top of your lungs is that it wears you out, but it’s good for the soul. Today I finally got open spots for the 3-D printer from the library. I didn’t [...]

Library, movie, park day, ice cream!

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Tuesday we went to the library for a teen necklace making event. Grace made a necklace for her friend Alex, it has coral pictures on both sides; Bethany cut out sentences and assembled them in the glass locket. The kid movie for Wednesday was Madagascar 3, then we headed to the park for park day. [...]

Weekend, Monday

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Saturday my Step-Mom and nieces came into town. They parked their camper in Pueblo and drove up for lunch. They brought the cutest puppy with them, it’s like a teeny-tiny Maisy. We had a good lunch and chatted at the house for awhile, they they took off for Pueblo and we watched the Lego movie [...]

Library craft

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Grace and Hannah made necklaces at the library. Their were old books to craft from and look what Grace found: a baby humpback and words to go with it. Hannah found a watercolor of the St. Louis arch (where she got Mr. Otter) and since none of the words would fit, she found a picture [...]

Clean up, ice cream, play-date, library

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

We had a clean up date this morning at a Salvation Army shelter. There must have been a mix-up because when we got there, our greeter wasn’t there and the guy who was didn’t know anything about it. We rolled with it though, we grabbed trash bags and gloves and cleaned up the outside of [...]
