  • Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Muffins for the Road (or maybe not)

    Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Muffins for the Road (or maybe not)

    I had three overripe bananas on the counter. Since LC is heading back to college tomorrow and JD is heading back to Springfield, I thought I’d make some banana muffins. I asked LC if he wanted chocolate chips or pecans in them. He said both.

  • We Are Not All in the Same Boat, But We Are in the Same Storm

    We Are Not All in the Same Boat, But We Are in the Same Storm

    We are not all in the same boat, but we are in the same storm. Some of us are in a yacht. Others are in a leaky rowboat, barely keeping afloat. Many are somewhere in between. The current issues of institutional racism and the pandemic affect each of us differently.

  • Webelos Camp at Camp May, Beaumont Scout Reservation, July 2007

    Webelos Camp at Camp May, Beaumont Scout Reservation, July 2007

    Here is a throwback to when LC went to Webelos Camp at Camp May. Several years later he would spend his summers working on camp staff there. This year, he and ZM were supposed to be working at Camp May again, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, camp was cancelled. LC was going to be aqua director and ZM was going to be field sports. But instead they are stuck home with me and The Husband and DS. Not quite what they planned, but we are enjoying our unexpected family time together.

  • Troop Court of Honor – July 2007

    Troop Court of Honor – July 2007

    Today’s throwback is to some photos I found from a Troop Court of Honor in July 2007. I noticed a few fun things here: How small DS looks, JD’s big smile while receiving an award, LC quietly sitting in the corner, and ZM getting involved in the action.

  • Is It a Limbo Snowman or a Disco Snowman?

    Is It a Limbo Snowman or a Disco Snowman?

    Since we’ve been having snow off and on this week, today’s throwback is to December 2010. The boys made this snowman in the front yard. It was great packing snow. But it was also warm enough that the snowman started to lean. We couldn’t decide if he was trying to do limbo or imitating John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

  • Trip to the Top of the Gateway Arch at Night

    Trip to the Top of the Gateway Arch at Night

    I finally went through my footage of our trip to the Gateway Arch from Thanksgiving and I put together some highlights in this video. It was a somewhat rainy day, but we still had some amazing views of downtown St. Louis from the top. This is the first time I have been up in the Arch at night and it did not disappoint.
