Back-to-School Pic :)

This shot makes my heart happy 🙂 I hope everyone had a great first week of school! Here we are beginning a new school year as a 4th year teacher, 9th grader, 6th grader, and 1st grader!

Astoria Food Coma

Sunday night, so… Lessons need to be finalized. 3 kids need to get ready for bed. I should probably figure out what I’m eating/wearing tomorrow, but… …I am so full. We had lunch at Sugar Freak in Astoria and the food is just some of the best comfort food you’ll find in Queens. Scroll down…

A visit to the Noguchi Museum

It took Joey some time to warm up and get comfortable yesterday, but overall the experience was much better than last weekend’s baseball practice disaster. Well, he’s not into sports, but he does love museums! Obviously I couldn’t be happier. Anyway, We love the Noguchi Museum! They have wonderful programs for kids on the weekends….

The weekend is here…

Winter break is just what I needed. I’m feeling calm, productive, assured and on top of every day tasks. I don’t want this little vacation from reality to end! In just 12 days, I’ll begin my last semester of graduate school, and I’m feeling ready, but also exhausted at the thought of going back to…

All the feels…

from going through the dozen or so blog posts on this page. I realized how much I wish I had kept up with this blog because it’s so heartwarming to see and read about the boys and what life was like just a few years ago. I also realize how quickly time is passing and…

Life lately

It’s been awhile.  Life has had its ups and downs, more downs than ups, but we are healthy and loving life regardless.  Robbie is graduating from elementary school this month!  He really is becoming such a little man!  Joey is a sweet and extremely clever 2.5 year old.  Anthony is now 7 and always practices…

Hercules

A little late to post, but we did enjoy snow storm Hercules! I enjoyed staying in and the boys enjoyed playing in it. How cute are they? It was so cold that they were both in within 30 minutes! It was a hot chocolate and comfort food kind of weekend! Not exactly how I intended…

Happy New Year!

As 2013 comes to a close, I have been thinking of different ways to make 2014 more memorable and special for our family.  I came across the idea of a memory jar, or blessings jar as some people call them, and thought it would be a perfect New Year’s Eve activity to do with the…

12 Dates of Christmas: A little One on One with Number 3

On the second date of Christmas, Joey and I shared a special date at the bookstore.  I envisioned a hot latte and a few books that we could read, but the last picture ^^ truly captures what the date consisted of:  Joey, come back!  He was so happy to be out and about and have a gazillion…
