I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Feel free to leave a comment--I'd love to hear what you have to say! You can also reach me at teachmetowalk [at] hotmail [dot] com.

The Flowers!

So, remember when I made Little Boy look at all the pretty flowers while we waited for his friends? Well, these are some of the flowers. [They're dahlias.]

[This is the part where I wish for more blog space and awesome photography skillz.]

This one's my favorite. When we went back to the farm a couple weeks later for their pumpkin-picking day, we were allowed to pick one flower--and Little Boy picked this kind.

The Munsters...?

Me, trying to put together a Halloween playlist: "I had no idea that the Munsters theme song was such a popular cover." Isaac, who is a guitarist: "It IS! It's so fun to play!" Who knew?!

Birthday Boy, Part 2

So...I guess the pictures from my last post aren't showing up. Sorry about that. I'll have to work on that later tonight, since right now...I'm supposed to be making dinner. And I'm blogging instead.

Anyway, part 2 of Little Boy's birthday. After presents, lunch, and cupcakes at Grandma's house, we headed to a local park/farm/playground to meet up with some friends.


Our friends weren't there yet, so I made Little Boy look at the flower gardens with me. He was not impressed. I think I might do a post just about those flowers. They were gorgeous. Moving along...


There are usually some farm animals around, but this year...not so many. The bunnies are always a kid-pleaser, though. (Yeah, that's a bunny up there.)


And the main event--the playground!


We wandered around the grounds for awhile, and Isaac showed them how to climb over a little fence to get to this big tree. *Sigh*...yeah, the fence is probably there for a reason. Anyway, Running-Around-the-Big-Tree is a super-fun game.


When we got back from the park, Little Boy's birthday package from his other grandparents was waiting for us! Yay for more presents!


And it included Little Boy's first-ever set of Legos. He LOVES Legos--I think he got some kind of loves-to-build-stuff gene from Isaac. The two of them were in heaven working on this set.

Birthday Boy, Part 1

Little Boy turned four this year. Four! We keep birthdays pretty low-key around here. We haven't had any big parties with a million little kids running around. Yet. (I think next year we'll probably throw him a "real" birthday party. But I'm putting my foot down at half-a-million kids.) So here's the first part of his big day: Presents from Mommy and Daddy first thing in the morning--because what little kid wants to wait until after breakfast to open presents? I've wanted to get him a set of pattern blocks forever...his birthday was a good excuse to finally get a set. After breakfast, we went to Grandma's house. There were cars. Cars are important to Little Boy. See the drum on the left? He asked for a drum specifically. "With two drumsticks." How old are you, Little Boy? (Those are the chocolate-frosting-with-sprinkles cupcakes he asked for.) Coming up in Part 2: birthday fun at the park! And! More! Presents!
