And I came home to this …

And I came home to this …

Caroline and I got home at almost 1:00 in the morning and although I kissed some sweet sleeping heads, I didn’t see that Jacob had lost his second front tooth until breakfast this morning. And I also noticed that he stood FLAT FOOTED on the floor and reached into the kitchen cabinet to get a cup.  And I said, I WAS ONLY GONE FOUR NIGHTS!!!!  HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED??!!??”. The ice cream truck always cheers me up so this…

This really is big news …

This really is big news …

As I mentioned earlier this week, Caroline and I are leaving today for Los Angeles for a volleyball tournament.  Funny thing is, I thought it was a big deal if we drove across the river to North Little Rock for a football game back in my day.  Now we’re going across country.  Wow.   Awfully glad Southwest Airlines is driving this carpool for me. But that’s not the big news … this is: I made dinner for my family to have…

Why is it …

Why is it …

That the funnest part of a trip for kids seems to always be the time in the hotel pool? Our trip to San Antonio was no exception. It didn’t matter to Savannah that I didn’t pack her a suit (or my pants!!!): She swam in her clothes and it didn’t bother her a bit. And the fact that there wasn’t a slide didn’t bother these two in the least, they made their own on the banister: They really enjoyed the…

Oh how she sparkles …

Oh how she sparkles …

Oh how she shines! Today she turns 14, this sweet girl of mine. It seems like only yesterday she was taking ballet … But later this week, we’ll board a plane for LA … there is a volleyball tournament in which she can’t wait to play. You are my first born and now you are taller than me … But I love who you are becoming … and pray you’ll be all God calls you to be! Happy 14th Birthday!!!…

And on the 5th day …

And on the 5th day …

Mama said she had loaded and unloaded the dishwasher for the last time during Spring Break. It was time to get out of Dodge.   Head to the ranch. Except that we don’t have a ranch. So we went to San Antonio instead. First stop, Fiesta Texas. I think everyone in Texas who didn’t have a ranch to go to went to Fiesta Texas that day too.  3 hour waits for rides.  Crazy.  The kids didn’t seem to mind and we…

Luck ‘o the Baergs …

Luck ‘o the Baergs …

I got pinched on St. Patricks Day. I didn’t have any green on my pajamas and since I’m having trouble getting out of those before around oh, say .. NOON, I was a sitting target. Savannah wore her “Shamrocks for Peace” shirt that we got last year in Savannah, GA and I made brownies. Cute flower ones. I had to make them because my kids accused me of buying pans and not using them … which is totally not true…

The Princess and the Frog

The Princess and the Frog

As you know, the Baergs are on break.  We’ve been going and going so now we’re doing a little resting … or breaking. Nothing too terribly exciting … we all went to Lifetime today and worked out and the kids did the rock climbing wall, a haircut or two, a closet cleaned … REAL exciting stuff.  I just hope no one has to write a paper when they get back about what they did over Spring Break.  It wouldn’t exactly…

Another year … another picture in the big red hat …

Another year … another picture in the big red hat …

Bill’s birthday was Friday  … 43!  I spent the afternoon making him a marble cheesecake and Bill spent at least a portion of his lunch hour at a Houston Aeros Hockey team promotion.  Somehow he won tickets to the game Friday night so we postponed our traditional Benihana birthday dinner until Saturday.  The kids and I had never been to a hockey game before and I had no idea they were so brutal.  It was like world wide wrestling on…

We dashed like armadillos ….

We dashed like armadillos ….

My roommate my freshman year of college nicknamed me Arma because my last name was Dillahunty and she thought “Arma” Dillahunty was hilarious.  Even though we haven’t talked in years if I called her today and said … “It’s Darla, I KNOW she would say … ARMA?” Pretty much everyone else at Baylor called me Dilla.  My friend Laura who was my friend at Baylor and now in Houston calls me Dilla to this day.  Not sure I’ve ever heard…

It’s almost like I forgot I had a blog …

It’s been exactly one week since I posted a blog.  It was unintentional.  It’s like Spring Break happened a week early around here!  I got back from the Tyler, College Station and San Antonio trip Monday night and have spent the rest of the week recovering. OK, who am I kidding?! … The trip was easier to recover from than this: Jacob lost his top front tooth.  And after the hillbilly phase with one tooth missing, then it’s the cute…
