Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

I suppose I could write and schedule a post in advance but I like to write and share in the same day. Some pre-Christmas highlights: Our Jesse Tree.  This year we switched […]

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (1 Respond)

While we were getting Christmas pictures taken the other day, I had Isaac’s new passport photo taken. This is the second time I brought him in for one. The first time they didn’t want to take his picture because he won’t close his mouth and I can’t make him not smile; both are passport photo […]

Remembrance Day

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

Sometimes Life Isn’t Beautiful

In 2012, Isaac began having seizures. You know those times when you are almost asleep and you jerk awake? Most of his seizures physically look like that jerk except that he is awake and doing normal activities when they happen. Sometimes they are a singular occurrence and if you blink, you miss it.

It’s Chloe’s first year heading to camp by herself for a week. I’m pretty sure she’s ready and I’m not. It helps that every year (except 1) we’ve went to Family Camp for a week there so she’s familiar with the grounds as well as the lovely families that live there year round and she […]

Mama and the Dopey Boy

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (1 Respond)

  Did I tell you that Isaac had his adenoids out in the spring 2014? He snored terribly and doesn’t breathe  through his nose at all. His adenoids were blocking 70% of his nasal passage. Post surgery his snoring isn’t so bad but I can’t say that I am noticing much difference in his breathing; […]

The summer has been flying by with fun and sun. We just returned home from a super duper fun time at my parents. One of the highlights? A canoe trip on a little lake and their surprise when we suggested jumping out of the canoe in the middle of the lake. John was a little […]
