Last Friday, we discovered that Zoe had head lice.  I’d never had them before and my kids never had either, so I took her to the doctor to figure out why her head was itching. She had a pretty mild case (the doctor had to look really hard to find any evidence), so at least […]

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words. …but most people probably don’t wait until quite this long after Thanksgiving.
