Great article on Foster Care: I couldn't say it better myself. Thanks Kristy for sharing your thoughts and family with other children.

Excited to read this news about Cystic Fibrosis in the NY Times
: Thankful for friends and family who have contributed to CFF to make this possible! Here in our small town of approximately 6,000 we have raised over $100,000 for CF research. Making drugs like this come a reality.

Love these lunch and sandwich bags
: We are all about ladybugs in our home and sheep (Shaun in particular) too. I love these creative, crafty homemade and adorable bags.

Ladybug and I recently discovered this show: during breathing treatment time. We are delayed in finding cute shows since we don't have cable here in Lovebug Land. We enjoy the catchy tunes and science tidbits. It is something our older foster child enjoys watching with her.

Shout Out
: Happy birthday to my daddy! He is the most loving, caring, compassionate, giving dad I could have. I love him so much and appreciate all that he has taught me about life. Looking forward to celebrating with my parents tonight! Ok, that link isn't connected to my dad, but he does share the same name with the iconic rock producer.

Lastly, I'll leave you with this cute picture of our fat tabby cat named, Ralphie. For those who may be wondering, the mouse is not real.


  1. Makoa LOVES Sid the Science Kid! He and Rach used to do the little dance together LOL!

  2. I don't know if you'll be able to get it from the US, BUT the BBC just brought a new programme on Cbeebies (the preschool channel) called 'Rastamouse' - it seems to be a hit with preschools all the way up to folks in their 40s (and older!)

  3. I always sing "I love my Mom. My mom is cool." to Jacky boy. You know, just so they know for sure how luck they are :)

  4. I am really enjoying reading your blog, Tricia! You have such an apparent love for life and it shines through all you share on here.

    And I love those lunch bags - too cute!!

    Blessings to you,
