Peppermint Kiss Cookies

Mississippi Mud Pie

Walker spent four days out at Camp St. Christopher on Seabrook Island with his grade- 75 10 year olds.  I don’t think you could have paid me to be a chaperone for that field trip.  They had a ball playing in the mud pit and learning more about the lowcountry natural life.  They had to […]

Leave the Cannoli

I feel like we had our last real summer weekend this past weekend.  My brother and his wife invited us out to a beach house they had rented on Folly Beach for Friday night.  We went to Taco Boy for dinner and then sat around talking and listening to the ocean.  Saturday morning I got […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

We have survived the first week back to school- it actually was relatively easy.  Walker came home the first day saying that he had the best group of teachers which is always good, and more importantly, he has not had too much trouble waking up in the morning.  The main change in school this year […]
