Geek Dad

My mom always said, "marry a nerd and fix him up!" I always joke that the Marine Corp did the fixing up for me. Boy, my kids sure are lucky for that ;-)

BUT REALLY... Geek dads are the best! Since school started this man has worked all day then come home and "worked" his night job. He hasn't gotten to bed any earlier than midnight. He's been tutoring Cal 3, Algebra 1, Physics, BioChem and lots of easier things in between. He's seriously loving every minute!!! And we adore him.

"If I were a flower, I'd be a sunflower. To always follow the sun. Turn my back to the darkness. Stand proud, tall and straight even with my head full of seeds." 

~Pam Stewart. 

Loving my art studio. Loving being creative again. And as always, I love SUNFLOWERS!

Boys laundry this week is a rainbow of colors.

Is it strange that this makes me incredible happy?!?!  Visually it is really pleasing to the eye. And to my heart it is even more so. I remember wanting babies so bad, fertility treatments and lots of tears. Even further back, I remember being a little girl and dreaming of the day when all my dreams would come true...
