Our New Friends

A couple of months ago, when Domi started school, he came home and proclaimed, “I found some really cool friends!” I was so excited. We had, had a dry spell when it came to finding friends that lived near-ish to us, that were close-ish to our age that wanted to do the same things we…

Someone Dropped Me Off At the Wrong Competition…

I was having such a tough time putting into words (that made sense) on the page this time around, so I am trying something new here!

A Viennese Holiday

When we woke up this morning and Domi was feeling under the weather I knew it was going to be an interesting day. Domi usually can power through anything so when he told me that he thought he had to spend the day in bed I knew he was really feeling icky. So, I had…
