  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Woot! woot! vote is for Cricket!!


Thanks Al!  I kind of like Cricket too!


YAY!!! I'm so happy for you!!! I saw that line and thought - maybe she means Mark will be there...for a therapist, I can be pretty clueless! Congratulations :)


Yeah Shutty family! We are all voting for Cricket too, boy or girl! We are so thrilled about this news. Cole really wants to see you....I think he just wants to stare at your belly. He is at the age where he sorta gets it but doesn't quite believe it yet! ha! Congrats to you guys and to the big brothers. xoxo to you all!

Congrats to you, mark and the boys- Keep it up and you wont all fit in the airstream.......


Thanks Jason!  That is true I dont think a bigger airstream is possible.  Although, our airstream probably has more total sleeping space than our small apartment camp!


We are so excited for all of you!! Tell Levi I love both of his name choices! The baby will be so lucky to have you & Mark as parents and 2 great brothers. Good thing you have that spacious mini-van. Congrats!
