Thirsties Duo Wrap
Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Whether you’re poolside, camping, or just enjoying some family time, I know we’re all thinking about the brave men and women who gave their lives fighting for our freedoms – as well as those who put their lives on the line everyday keeping us safe.
As the “unofficial” start of summer, this holiday has me dreaming about how we’ll be spending OUR summer as a family. (I’m an educator and summer doesn’t really start in our neck of the woods until the end of June or so.)
Since we moved last fall, I’ve realized how much S-T-U-F-F we have accumulated – some of it of our own accord, but a vast majority of it as well-meaning gifts from loved ones.

If you’ve been reading the Thirsties blog from time to time, you may remember when we had a family of one son, followed by two when our daughter, Harper, arrived in 2015. Well, as we all learned on Sesame Street, the next logical number to follow is three – and that’s just what we’ll have come the end of October.
I always knew that I might have three children one day. While I’m not a mathematical person, it always worked out in my mind: my husband is one of two boys, I’m the baby of four, so take the average; my parents were both from families of 5, so the fact that I was one of four kind of told my brain that THREE would be the perfect number.
Huh. Maybe I’m more of a mathematical person than I let on.
Anyhoo, regardless of my strange (no, really, you can … Read More
