We're back!

We found lots of sea glass, and engaged in cousin worship. The picture above is of my 15-year-old nephew, my 18-year-old niece, and my 10-year-old son being ridiculous on the beach.

The way it works

In order to wash one's hair, one must:

  1. Get all of ones hair wet, not just get all of one hair wet.
  2. Apply shampoo to ones entire head of hair.
  3. Rinse one's hair thoroughly.
It's not rocket science.

Some of the links in my blogroll will vanish. This is not because I don't read them, I do, but they are more appropriate to Doorbell Queen, so that's where they will reside.

Links to blogs that haven't updated in over 6 months will move to the "Gone Quiet" section.

If you've got a blog that I don't link to here or at DBQ, let me know!

What Muffin Man will be doing for Summer Vacation

  • One week in a music day camp, testing out the drums.
  • Two weeks doing computer graphics and Lego robotics
  • Two more weeks doing Lego Robotics
  • Two weeks doing I don't know what yet. Maybe we'll go away somewhere?
  • Two weeks creating video games, and doing more Lego Robotics.
What? He LIKES Lego Robotics. And they're all very different TYPES of Lego Robotics. They all have very different GOALS.

Yes. I will keep telling myself that.

Plus, he has a Lego Robotics kit and it's good for him to get as much practice programming it as possible.

Muffin Man is 10 today. TEN.  


Holy guacamole.

He once was this tiny little thing:

And then he was a little boy:

And then he was a bigger boy:

And now he's this Big Kid:

I love this boy sooooo much.

Happy birthday, my Muffin Man.
