These are memories that happened before I changed AmaraLand from a website to a blog. Many of them have been the result of old emails and some were inspired by old photos.

The Flying Bed

This is another episode of previously on Amara and comes from September of 2008. She was almost 4 and ½. Grampy and I are always joking about Twursula “holding the bed down” because that cat sleeps more than any other cat and she sleeps very hard. Only 2 thing that can interrupt Twursula’s sleeping, the Read the Rest

This is another episode from Previously on Amara from March of 2008. She wasn’t quite 4 years old yet. With so much of this country waist deep in snow and with Southern California expecting a balmy 72° today, it seemed like good timing!

Amara starts 1st Grade

It’s hard to believe that Amara will be starting 1st grade on Monday. 1st grade! How did we get here so quickly. I was reading Grandma Shelley’s blog the other day and she was talking about the many first we grandparents get to experience. A couple of years ago I was taking a HTML class Read the Rest
