September Plans

Our neighbors (an M4 and a recent law school graduate) are about to leave for Ghana for a month to, no joke, deliver babies and set up a law clinic. I realize this sounds like the synopsis of an upcoming inspirational memoir, but I assure you, these people and this trip are very real. And […]

Recent Developments!

There has been some excitement at our house lately!  One, B’s labor and delivery rotation has had some lows but has been awesome learning experience. He even got to scrub in on a C-section and do a couple sutures! Two, B now likes sushi. You guys, this is such big news, I can’t even explain. […]

I Merely Accept the Nightlife

It was warm and summery around here, a welcome change from […]

This weekend was a switch weekend for B between clinical rotations. Ya know what that means? A weekend off! We jumped at the chance to take a quick camping trip. I’m not a huge camping fanatic, but I enjoy it for a night or two. However, someone isn’t quite so keen on camping. Mox enjoys […]
