The Meaning of Christmas

December 25th, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

We went to Trinity yesterday for the Family Christmas Eve service. When it was time for the sermon, Father Mark called all the children to sit on the steps with him in the front of the church. We persuaded Link to go up there too. Father Mark started out by asking the children about the [...]

Trip to England – Part 3

Day 4 We woke up early on Friday to catch our 9am train to London King’s Cross from Northallerton. We left Link with Granny (who was making him some oatmeal) and PopPop took us to the station. Link was indifferent to our departure, though I think we got hugs before we left. I’ve tried to [...]

Trip to England – Part 2

August 1st, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

After Bolton Castle, we stopped at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham for lunch. It was a bit crowded, but Kit did an excellent job parallel parking the car. We played “I spy” while waiting for our food, and then Link refused a bowl of spaghetti and ate a few fries (we commented on the [...]

Trip to England – Part 1

July 11th, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

I’m a little late in the telling, but here goes… We went to England to visit Granny and PopPop in June. We left on the 15th at 7:30 pm, and arrived at 8:30 am on the 16th (Alex’s birthday*). Right off the bat, I’d forgotten the travel pillows I’d purchased specifically for the trip, but [...]

We went to visit the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad last month. We drove up to Bryson City, NC on Saturday, rode the train through the Nantahala Gorge, stayed overnight and drove home Sunday morning. We kept our destination a surprise from Link. We just told him that we were going on a special trip. He [...]

Easter in Chicago – Part 5

April 23rd, 2008 · by sarra · 1 Comment

Monday morning we woke after Aunt Mimi left for work. Our flight was at 5:30pm, and though I would have liked to take Link to Chicago to do more sightseeing, I knew that he’d need to nap if I was to survive the trip home. After we showered and packed, I took Link to the [...]

Easter in Chicago – Part 4

April 22nd, 2008 · by sarra · No Comments

Easter Sunday started out pretty quiet. Link sat and watched Thomas on the iPod and played with his toys in the morning. After his nap we went to Uncle Jim’s house for the Easter Egg Hunt and Jeremy’s birthday. When we first got there, Link dragged me downstairs so he could play with Owen, Gavin [...]

Saturday morning, Aunt Mimi, Grammy and I met Aunt Robin for breakfast at a local pancake place. After breakfast we headed to Walmart to pick up some groceries and eggs to color. Then we headed back for lunch and a nap. When Link woke up, he colored eggs with Grammy and Aunt Mimi. After the [...]

Easter in Chicago – Part 2

April 7th, 2008 · by sarra · No Comments

Link slept on an ottoman (bigger than his bed at home!) placed next to my sister’s bed, where she and I slept. I could hear Link rustling around on Friday morning around 5:30, but I ignored him and he stayed quietly there (just like at home). When my sister got up at 6 to get [...]

Easter in Chicago – Part 1

April 1st, 2008 · by sarra · 2 Comments

I took Link to Chicago for Easter weekend this year. I had planned to take Link to Chicago for NCAA Basketball weekend so that Alex could watch the games in peace, but apparently it was Easter too. Thursday morning started bright and early. The Ladybug Light woke Link an hour earlier than usual, but he [...]
