Happy Halloween! Do you have any big plans for Halloween this year? We’re skipping it entirely at the RB40 household. Well, I got a pumpkin and Mrs. RB40 carved it, but that’s about it. RB40Jr does not like dressing up and he’s too scared to go trick or treating. Even candy is not enticing enough […] Read More

Fall has arrived. Are you getting chilly where you live? The transition to cooler weather felt abrupt for us. It was summer when we went to Hawaii for a week and it was fall when we got back. I’m a bit sad because I love the long hot summer days filled with fun activities. Mrs. […] Read More

I hope you’re having a relaxing Labor Day weekend. It’s unusually HOT here in Portland. I was thinking about heading to the beach to escape the heat, but we were too lazy. We’ve already been to the beach 3 times this year and we have 2 more beach trips scheduled. Summer has been really busy […] Read More

Whew, what a busy month July was. We went to visit Mrs. RB40’s family in California, went hiking in a lava tube at Mt. St. Helen, and generally enjoyed the summer. I love summer in the Pacific Northwest. The weather is hot, but it is still much better than many other parts of the US. […] Read More

Summer is almost here! Our kid only has 2 weeks of kindergarten left and then it will be summer break. He’s really looking forward to goofing off all day at home. That means playing on the tablet, watching TV, and having LEGO wars. However, that’s not going to work. It’s not good for kids to […] Read More

Happy May Day! Can you believe 2017 is 1/3 over already? Is it strange that I think of everything in terms of percentages and fractions? It makes time goes by quicker for some reason. Pretty soon the year will be half over, then ¾, then 2017 will be gone. There is so much left to […] Read More
