Wendi’s Word: Firsts for kindergartner

I don’t know about all of you Clarkston fans but I can’t go right to sleep after coming home from a game. Optimistically, I would like to especially since the caffeine I had all day seems to disappear by the second half. The plan was straight to bed after football’s Friday game at Stoney Creek […]

Wendi’s Word: Those first days

It began… Jonathan is now in Kindergarten. His elementary school journey began last Thursday. Naturally it began with the first day of school photos. I let him choose inside or outside, and he wanted to go outside. He chose the location…under a tree. Amazingly, he actually seemed excited to hold the photo board this year. […]

Wendi’s Word: Brother bond

Five-year-old Jonathan opens his arms to the side and asks his two-year-old little brother, Oliver, for a hug. Oliver walks up and leans in for a hug. It will continue for a few more moments and may or may not happen a couple more times a day – the sweet brother moment. Jonathan keeps growing […]

Wendi’s Word: MTV flashbacks

It popped up on feeds a few times during the weekend on social media. MTV was officially 40 years old, debuting on August 1, 1981. I barely remember watching it the first decade it was on. Heck, I was barely a toddler when it debuted. Being as young as I was I don’t believe my […]

Wendi’s Word: Thursday adventure

My co-pilot was very specific as we took the day off and drove around last Thursday. I was on the lookout for garage sale signs and we did find quite a few subdivision sales – even two in Clarkston on the route we were taking. But again, my five-year-old co-pilot, Jonathan, was specific – if […]

Wendi’s Word: Summer like a mom

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and enjoyed the warm, sunny weather after all the rain we had a few weeks ago. I spent most of Saturday having a Mommy Day. I didn’t go anyplace special really I didn’t go anywhere except the basement. Thinking about it now, it’s mirrors really well with my […]

Wendi’s Word: A school year ends

Students left schools for the last time for this school year on Friday. What a school year! There were ups. There were downs. There were a lot of uncertainties and a lot of emotion. I hope you and your family made it through the school year despite the curvy road it took to get to […]

Wendi’s Word: Hooray for ’21 grads

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! You have taken your final tests, received your caps and gowns and taken the final walk in your high schools. I will say it was nice to see smiling faces at the Clarkston High School Senior Funcheon, May 21. It was nice to see smiles. The masks were down […]

Wendi’s Word: Spring has arrived

Ah, sweet springtime! The boys were made for the outdoors. Five-year-old Jonathan has no problem jumping out of the vehicle after coming home from school and going right to his “rock quarry” in the backyard. Really it’s just dirt from where we pulled out a lot of overgrown plants and weeds from behind the house. […]

Wendi’s Word: More boxes, more fun

It’s spring time! Big exclaimation mark. Huge! I am excited for garage sales. More specifically to hold a garage sale. There’s just…so…much stuff. It is definitely spring clean time. I was good at the beginning of 2021 – making a list of every area of the house for a checklist with the goal to go […]
