TMS Wind Ensemble Pre-UIL Concert

I might have mentioned this before, but I am SO proud of Jacob’s musical ability. He’s doing so well on trombone in 7th grade. He’s the first chair trombone in the top band at his school (so, yes, he beat out some 8th graders! Woo-hoo!). On Friday (2/22/13 – the night before I ran the […]

Grampires and Other Toddler-isms

Published by under Samuel Lewis

Sam is at that wonderful age where you just want to follow him around with pen and paper – or, if you’re more with the times, a videocamera – to capture all the fun things he says. For your reading enjoyment, here are some recent giggle-inducing lines. (Some are repeats from FB – sorry) Sam […]

Keller Elite League Champs!

Saturday was the league playoffs for Jacob’s basketball team. They went into the playoffs as the number 1 seed. They played two hard-fought games almost back-to-back (11 am and 1pm) and came out victorious! Keller Elite 12U basketball, League Champs! Don’t you just love how Jacob is the only one not smiling? Even his Dad […]

2013 Cowtown 10K

I know you’re all sick of hearing me post about it, but I’ve got to get this race report down while it’s still somewhat fresh in my head. Bear with me here, please. I didn’t officially sign up for the Cowtown 10k until the 19th…the race was on the 23rd. Now, I’d been┬áthinking about doing […]

Making PJs and Breaking Sewing Machines

**Note: I do realize this post is quite outdated, and that several snippets were posted to Facebook. However, I have a few new projects in mind, so a recap now is timely, I think. Also? It’s my blog and I’ll rehash if I want to.** My favorite set of pjs was a gift from my […]

Jacob, Duke TIP, and the SATs

It’s no secret that my boys are smart. And handsome. And good-natured. And funny. And loving. And…well, you get the idea. They’re generally dreamy kids. Today, in particular, we’ll talk about Jacob’s intelligence dreaminess. Back in the fall, we were notified that Jacob’s hard work in his academic classes qualified him to take part in […]

Valentine’s Box, The First Year

Remember the Valentine’s Day goodies I posted about last week? I did finish the goodie bags during the week, but that Valentine box? Yeah….it didn’t get started until today. Thankfully, it also got finished today…and then partially destroyed (there is a toddler in the house, and he was helping–you do the math)…and then refinished (sort […]

My Lot in Life

Is clearly to be surrounded by devastatingly handsome young men. I got new frames for two of the 8×10 size pictures of Jacob and Caleb that are mainstays on our mantle. I reframed the pictures and as I set them back up, it struck me again of just how incredibly handsome all the boys are. […]

Valentine’s Day Goodies

Sam’s class is having an actual Valentine’s Day party this year, complete with exchanging valentines and decorated boxes and everything. Clearly, a 2.5 year old can’t do a TON to help make his valentine box, but I wanted him to feel like he could help. So today, after basketball games, Sam, Granny, and I went […]

Sam as a Frog

Sadly, I don’t mean a Horned Frog. Remember the toy shelf we got in January? Sam decided it was really fun to dump all the cars out of the frog bin and play in the bin itself. Caleb used to do this kind of thing, too. Personally, I love it. Enjoy.
