Life…as we know it

Based on this blog, it may appear that we’re constantly traveling somewhere. The truth is, we’re actually homebodies more often than most people would think. With the girls in elementary school this year, we’re much more cautious about taking them away from their regular lessons in the classroom. That’s not to say we haven’t been guilty of that, but we try to refrain from it. Our travels usually fall on the weekends, or on the school’s vacation schedule. In between the travels, our lives are pretty routine, with a bit of spice to it…you know, 6 year old girls are all about adding creativity to every facet of life!

We eat at home most days, and the girls sometimes help with the preparation....such as the case with these homemade meatballs :)

I can’t quite remember what life was like before Brianne and Bridgette came along. We must have had a lot of free time, uninterrupted conversations, and a clean, nice looking home. But, I bet our lives weren’t nearly as interesting as it is now…. 🙂
