Cainan was promoted to Green Belt today! I love that he has stuck with Karate since the age of 4 - even while we lived in Switzerland. I am glad he found the sport for him.

Finley had decided she would like to learn to skateboard. It is always reassuring to a mother when her vision impaired child picks "trickier" things to learn. We already had a skateboard and the helmet, so today she headed out into the driveway to give it a try

I have officialy been fully vaccinated again Covid. Because of my work with the Pool testing as a nurse, I was eligible now for the vaccine.

My parents have been vaccinated as well, so slowly but surely we are getting there!

Sink area with island and bar area. The window along the back wall will be staying - just being raised and reframed. The sink will be under the middle window - dishwasher to the left. Bar is there to the right - it will hold 4 chairs. And the square at the bottom of this picture is the other half of the island.
There is no doubt that my grandmother Appolonia was an amazing cook. Her Italian food was second to none and I miss watching her work in the kitchen.
Luckily she passed some of those skills down to my mom and now my mom is passing them to me and the kids. We have learned to make my grandmother's ravioli. The recipe makes enough to feed a small army, so we are stacking our freezer for when our kitchen gets remodeled.
The kids did a great job and were troopers in making so many
