Elliot is ready for Easter.

Sometime around last summer, I decided to stop cutting the top part of my hair. Since I was mostly working from home, I had no need to look "professional" and decided to experiment.

How long could I grow out my hair?

Will it be annoying?

Maybe I'll like it?

Perhaps this will be my new look?

Every Kid Outdoors was created so fourth graders and their families could discover our wildlife, resources, and history for free

Since Tyson qualified, it was time to pack our bags and go explore. On spring break, we hit the road and headed west...

Eight days and seven nights. Over 2,000 miles driven. Over 24 hours on the road. 

Four national parks visited.

A winter blast is coming. The weather forecast predicted it days (if not a week) in advance... with a high likelihood of snow in Texas. How exciting! Or so we thought.

By Monday morning, Presidents' Day, the snow and cold weather came. We woke up to no electricity which went out around 1 a.m. Good thing the kids already had the day off or else everyone would've been late for school. Naturally, we played in the rare Texas snow.

My mom has a problem. She can’t seem to let go and stop babying us. I appreciate the things she does for us but sometimes it’s a bit too much. Overwhelming. Smothering. It’s been a work in progress, and she has gotten better, but she still does things that make me say, “What are you doing?!”
