Ghosts of Halloween Past

Many (many!) years ago I took this picture of a friend of mine. It was at a Halloween party at a fraternity at my university. An alum came down and donned the lamest Halloween costume ever, what he called a "Charlie Brown ghost". At some point in the evening, we decided it would be funny to write on him. By the end of the evening, he was deemed "Beta Bridge", a local bridge where everyone painted party announcements, happy birthdays, and even a few proposals.Read…See More

Time with my tribe

I have been incredibly busy lately. I'm not sure I've been this busy before in my life.

I'm sure there's more, but those are the things that come to mind right now, in my five minutes before I need to run in another direction. Two things have completely fallen by the wayside lately: reading and time with my…See More

Take A Child Outside Week

Friday kicked off the "Take a Child Outside" Week. There were a lot of activities around the area, but unfortunately, we weren't able to participate. We were outside for a large part of the weekend, but we weren't exactly communing with nature. Instead, our weekend was filled with sports: my race (got 2nd in my age group!), Shoo's soccer class, Jones' soccer game, and the Nationals' game. I love the fall and I love getting outside and hiking and…See More

We try to make sure we take advantage of those days whenever they happen.Since we were up early for Jones' soccer game, we decided to head into Old Town Alexandria for lunch. Beer Geek and I had won tickets for a monuments boat cruise at an auction last year, so we decided to use those and buy tickets for the boys.(…See More
