Seasons of change.

Last week our little house on 221st street sold. While on a bike ride soon after, it hit me how many big seasons have happened these last few years!

We explored a new place last night, a walking trail (mostly concrete) around a man-made lake.Continue reading “A parent-scare + restore-faith-in-humanity story.”

My only appropriate response to this is to draw him in his glory wearing Blippi’s garb. Even when he asks for hisContinue reading “Blippi’d”
