Long Runs with Munchkins

It was rather gray with lots of inversion, but the sunny days were joyous and appreciated when they … Continue reading January was…

I started out this year with a dare. I didn't know I wwas pregnant when I wrote it so in february the dare was modified to include just the following list.
