RnB in the minivan, ready to head home, Dec. 14 (Copyright © 2015 by Wil C. Fry.) A few days ago, my wife and I — and our offspring — returned safely and happily from a five-day trip to Oklahoma for a bit of an early Christmas celebration with family — and a surprise birthday[…]

The last photo we took in Galveston (Copyright © 2015 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.) In the middle of M’s 17-day stretch of paid leave, we took a five-day jaunt to Galveston, having enjoyed last year’s trip to Corpus Christi Bay so much. M booked the hotel back in February when she[…]
Today was just “Thursday” for us. M returned to work, the kids played with their Christmas gifts from the previous two days, and I worked on our Xmas trip blog entry. Both kids ate well for me and were relatively well-behaved, perhaps 90% for both of them. M cooked a small version of Christmas dinner[…]
For a slightly early Christmas, we went to Oklahoma to see my family, and had a wonderful trip — both the visiting and the actual traveling. Plans sprouted up for this trip during our Nov. 11 visit to my brother’s house, when my mother asked about Thanksgiving plans. Not everyone could come for Thanksgiving, but[…]

(2014.12.04: I added a paragraph after receiving a reply from Bluehost this morning.) As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I began having issues with my web host, Bluehost. Today, I switched to HostGator — hopefully without any disruption on the reader’s end.

As we often do, we celebrated Thanksgiving a day early, since my wife works tomorrow. I was up to 95% health-wise, while my wife came down with whatever I had on Monday (and apparently what BWF had the day before). She had a low-grade fever, chills, and more. RLF had only bathroom-related symptoms of slight[…]

I returned the baby gate to the office doorway after a two-week experiment of having it removed. Rebecca simply couldn’t resist messing with the computer, the camera gear, the books, and other non-toddler-safe items in the office. I finally decided it was pointless to keep tempting her and then having to call her on it.[…]
Because my wife works tomorrow, we celebrated Thanksgiving today. (Copyright © 2012 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)
Marline and Rebecca near the Bell County Courthouse (Copyright © 2012 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) On the advice of neighbors, we went to the Belton Fourth of July Festival and Parade today.
Every time we start to worry that Rebecca is behind in her development (I assume most parents are concerned about this from time to time), I just check several “toddler milestone” charts from reputable organizations. She’s fine. As with most children, she’s ahead on some things, behind on others, and right on target with some.[…]
