(This is Kristine. I am sitting with M, E, O and W – the campers of Camp MEOW. We have worked hard all day on our recipe for our lemonade stand. We’d like to share it with you now. But, first, I am turning over the reins of the blog to the kids! So everything […]

The kids spent their second day at Camp MEOW at the L family’s house, which is clearly a creative mecca. I walked in after teaching and a subsequent appointment to find their dining room table covered in drawings, logos, sales materials, coins and worksheets. The kids have made the decision to have a “pop up” […]

This week, a friend and I are running our own little “budding entrepreneurs” summer camp for our kids. We each have a rising 1st grader, a rising 2nd grader, and a “baby sister.” Our friends, the Ls, run a business from their home. We will leverage their business experience plus my blogging, writing and recipe creation to […]

I try to wait until the very last cold spell passes before I switch everything out, and I am not quite confident we are […]

It’s baseball season and I’m a whiner. My son plays in the neighborhood league, where they warn you that failure to participate will mean you won’t be a part of the league next year. And participate? Well, that means two practices and two games per week. Did I mention he’s six? I prioritize family dinners, […]

In case you didn’t see the Facebook post yesterday, Sweet Baby Olive lost her battle with AML – acute myeloid leukemia – yesterday. Olive’s mom wrote a beautiful blog post on breastfeeding Olive through her diagnosis. Maggie’s and Olive’s story touched my heart and my heart is heavy today with the news of her passing. Incidentally, […]

I was up with Little A three times last night between the hours of eleven and five, and then up for good with her at 5:15. It’s one of those days where cogent thoughts are not forming in the brain. Bear with me and I will toss some goodies your way, though. Just remember to […]
