Green Ticket and Tape Day!

Annalise’s school has a program where students are awarded with “green tickets” whenever they’re caught doing something good, such as following directions, assisting another student, etc. Unsurprisingly, Annalise has really taken to this program and works hard to earn these tickets every chance she gets. We promised we’d celebrate with an activity of her choice […]

Sean’s Super ‘Do!

We decided to have a family portrait taken this weekend…and that meant it was also time for Sean’s first haircut! We all loved his little curls in the back, but the locks were getting a bit too out of control. Unlike his sister, Sean took the entire process in stride…no crying, complaints or even turning […]
