Goodbye Ms. Hamilton/Leutung/Woodbury

After 29 years of teaching, planning, giving, and loving other people's kids... my step-mom, Jeanne is done!! YAY!! (Now she can do more of that for her grandkids!!)

Although she doesn't want much recognition, I can't help but honor all that she has done. She has taught Kindergarten through third grade, in three different cities, and with three different names :). She has worked in the poorest schools with the poorest families. She has worked in all year round schools and in loop teaching schools. She has taught kids who can barely focus and those who barely speak English.

This could not be more timely, as Eden enters Kindergarten this year, because she has also taught me to appreciate every teacher that comes across our path.

Your children and grandchildren are so proud of you!
In fact, we are so excited we've gone SILLY!

Rainy day pizza

Faster... cheaper... and dare I say, BETTER than delivery!

She must have a magic touch.

Goodbye Perk Hill

We love our neighborhood, especially our block, it rocks! Downtown Denver is known for it's pocket shopping districts and it is such a treat to have one of these conveniences within a very short walking distance of our home. Brian can buy wine/beer and pizza. I can do yoga and get my nails done. Eden can get her hair cut, go to gymnastics, and coax us into dozens of cupcakes. All within steps of our home. But one of our greatest pleasures was our local coffee shop, Perk Hill (a.k.a. "the ice-cream shop" to Eden). They closed their doors this week and we had to say goodbye to our lattes and chai tea, ice-cream and scones, movie rentals and study joint. What a loss.

We ate our last scoops of ice-cream as the moving truck was loaded with the contents of our favorite little Park Hill treasure. You will be missed greatly, Perk Hill Cafe.

We're back!

Although it may have seemed like we were stuck in the dryer or something, Blogger was actually having some technical difficulties. Sorry!

I hope you weren't too worried (Gigi). Everyone is doing great. In fact,
we have been having a ball! This crazy rain has forced us to get a little more creative than normal - not quite wet and bored enough to put the kids in the dryer - he just did that all on his own.

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand~ Author Unknown
