Phil and Glady and I stayed up late last night playing a game. The idea was to play earlier, but Juliet and Pippa lost their chance, so we played after they had gone to bed, and Johann. But it was fun to play with Glady, who ‘got’ the concept of Spy Alley very quickly and… Read More Playing Games
Look what Dad brought home when he’d gone out to get some propane! He named her “Propane”, go figure… Johann calls her “kitty-kiy” to be different than Bear, whom he calls “kitty”
Johann catches a quick snooze between trips.The girls wait for someone to let us in where we need to set up a show.Mr. Phil and Co.! she even has her own weskit. Let’s see… we went to see Jean, our family’s doctor, yesterday. All the kids were due for their annual check-ups and Pippa had… Read More July Journeys
He’s two already! So hard to believe he’s such a big boy already. He’s having a good day, though. Playing quietly right now. We won’t have a celebration today – Nana wants to have the kids up to see Uncle Austin and Aunt Bobbi today. And Phil and I are up to our elbows in… Read More Happy Birthday, Johann!
What an exciting Family Day! We have three planned this summer, and the first one we spent taking the trip down to Manchester to see the FisherCats play. The girls did much better than I had hoped, sitting quietly and at least trying to watch the game. Juliet and Pippa had their little foam baseballs… Read More Take Me Out to the Ballgame!
We’ve been measuring how much weight Phil’s losing against the weight of the children. His first goal was to lose a Johann, and he got there about a month ago, and this morning he called after his weigh-in to tell me he’d lost 16 pounds! He’s lost a Pippa and almost a Juliet! Yay! His… Read More Phil lost a Pippa!
The last few days before a Summer Reading Show launch are always busy. It doesn’t help that I’ve got a sinus infection. The first one in 3 months, which is good, but still! The kids are great – playing outside most of the time, as it has been lovely weather except for the nasty thunderstorm… Read More Rushing into summer
He loves his sister’s boots – he has boots, too, but he likes the big ones. And, of course, with potty training comes a certain lack of being dressed….! But he’s so gosh-darned cute.
Birds making chicks warm. Here is Dad, he has food. Yum! Cozy little chicks. (Mr Phil’s note: That’s a chick not an egg)
It must be summer! The pictures are from last weekend, when we visited the Hobo Railroad in Lincoln for Phil’s orientation tour. The kids had a blast, and enjoyed meeting Choo-choo the clown. This weekend poor Phil is twisting at a gig in the Cambridge, MA area and got thoroughly lost! I just got off… Read More School’s Out
This is my version of a goal-setting exercise we are doing for a guy we may be hiring to coach us. Hi, Eric, We are still waiting on the info from the last time we talked to you, from the files we sent to you, but we do know you are busy. And we liked… Read More I don’t know if you are interested…
Well, I suppose this means summer has come… It is 85 this morning and going up. Phil has just left to twist for a park dedication in Merrimack. He and I have a couple of gigs together over Memorial Weekend. We are going to be at the Mount Washington Hotel tomorrow – that ought to… Read More Whew, It’s Hot out there!
