What’s New??

I am finding myself exhausted lately as the heat wave has passed and with it the excuse to sit in the kiddie pool with my little people all day and do no chores.  So in light of my tired state and my equal desires to update the blog and also to go to bed, my […]

Crying

I have been thinking a lot lately about our family’s story.  This chapter isn’t turning out at all like I had suspected the script was written. Crying, lots of crying.  That’s what’s going on at the Kortman house these days.  And Zan crys quite often too! 🙂 ‘Little Z’  is six weeks old and we […]

Depraved Indifference
