This past spring my mom, fondly known as Grandmom, came up for a visit in between school sessions. She was able to stay for just over a week and as always, it wasn’t nearly long enough. Mom has visited a total of four times and each time we’ve done something new and different. This time, the…

One day, out of the blue, Micah suggested visiting a new place we had never been before. At first, I was just going to let it be him and the kids but I needed a break from my to-do list and decided to go along, too. At the last minute, I stuck my “work camera”…

For the second year in a row we were able to bring my mom up for a visit during her fall break (she’s a teacher) and this year we were able to bring my dad up, too! This was mom’s third visit to Alaska but Dad’s first AND their first time visiting our new home…

This year for memorial day, since it fell during my part-time maternity leave, we decided to take advantage of the super-extended weekend (four days instead of three days) and leave the city far behind us. After church Sunday night, we finished loading up the Xterra and left the house by 9:30. That is one of…

That’s right- we’ve gone back in time… or at least in seasons! We’re in Bethel for the week, introducing Caleb to all his family and of course, the weather decided to greet us with an extra-special welcome! i.e. A Blizzard! Uh-huh. Bethel has been experiencing a blizzard for the last two days that has decreased…

Warning— I have Caleb sleeping on my chest in his Snuggie, so I can’t actually SEE the keyboard. That will explain any typos or errors you might find. Yeah, when Caleb wants to be held, which seems to be 90% of the time, but we can’t actually hold him at the time, then Micah and…

Hello Friends

Hey there, I'm Megan, a Southern girl married to an Eskimo, living in an igloo in Alaska. Okay, so it's not really an igloo, but we have built one for fun! Still, our little home is filled with life and laughter, kids and a dog. And I share those gimpses into our life, the horror stories and the most wonderful adventures, here on my little corner of the internet. I love connecting with fellow moms and sharing our stories with one another. So from me to you, welcome!
