Liam’s Preschool Graduation

Like a rite of passage for all the Sekol kids, Liam completed his preschool circus program as a seal (Nora was a lion, Anna was a pony). He actually participated, but didn’t sing the songs, which was par for the course. He did smile insanely wide when he got his diploma. I’m not sure whether […]

Anna’s New Glasses

Anna has very bad eyesight and we were told the glasses would be slightly less than granny’s old bottle cap style. These actually aren’t nearly as bad at all. They are purple and quite cute. So far, she’s very excited. As for Nora, she’s very jealous. Anna can’t wait to show them to her Kindergarten […]

Beautiful Girl by the Pool

Today is Mother’s Day 2014. We all headed down to Grandpa Joe’s and Grammy Terry’s house to swim. It was a little early for the adults, so only Joe and the kids went in. Nora was our otter though. She was in and out and down the slide a ton. She outlasted everyone else. Here […]

Color Me Rad, Allentown 2014

After Nora and I completed the Color Me Rad in Bethlehem last year, we convinced the others to join in. We practiced getting ready the night before and come morning, it was 1. Get Up! 2. Get dressed! 3. Get in the car! We ate breakfast on the way to our 7:40AM start time, but […]

What do you mean you aren’t reading the blog?!

I am sure that it comes as no surprise that the whole blog idea was Matt’s idea.  He started one back when we were building the house and updated it with pics of the construction progress and such.  Then, after Nora was born he started this one with our own domain name as a way to […]

Damn Septic

The septic mound has been a giant source of frustration even before it was put it. (You can refer back to our house building posts if you have forgotten the drama of our lot only perking in one location causing us to have to build our house closer to the curb than the other houses […]

Is it Bedtime Yet?!

I am very blessed, I am very blesssed, I am very blessed – today I had to remind myself of that, repeatedly! Most days I LOVE being a stay at home mom and feel very fortunate that I have that option. Today was not one of those days! Today I would have jumped at the chance to be […]

Congrats Jenna and Matt (Shaw)!

Matt’s cousin, Jenna got married today in Maryland. They thoughtfully included the kiddos in the invitation, however after much thought and discussion we decided that it was just too much to either drive down the night before and stay in a hotel with the kids or get up super early in the morning and drive […]

Fixed laptop AND ice cream!

Matt bought me a laptop for my birthday this year. As much as I didn’t think I would really like a laptop, I now cannot imagine going back to a regular computer that you have to sit at a desk to use. I have a nice comfy spot on the end of the couch where […]

Blog?!? What blog?

For those of you that were once upon a time, regular followers of our blog… you may have noticed that it has been quite some time since the last update, about a year actually. Hmmm, what happened in the Sekol household about a year ago??? Oh yeah, we welcomed our third child into the world! […]
