What Brett has been working on: Readeo.com

Sunday, February 28th, 2010


For a little over a year, Brett has been working on a website (www.readeo.com) that lets people read childrens books online together even if they live far away. The site uses video chat and digital books so that you can see and hear each other as you read. It’s perfect for grandparents with grandkids who live out of town, parents who travel a lot for business, and other situations where you’d want to read with little kids who don’t live close by. It would have been perfect when Noah and Logan lived in Ohio, and us in Utah.

There are guest and member accounts, and a family usually only needs one member account (guests are free). Choosing the right account for you might be a little confusing, so if you have questions about which to chose, send Brett an email and tell him to make it a little easier to understand 🙂 And if you check Readeo out and want an account (you will!), you can use the code “readeolaunch” to get a free month.

Sliding Rock

Friday, August 8th, 2008

I surprised Brett last night with a little after-work adventure. The boy loves anything to do with the outdoors or getting dirty. He was giddy.

It had just rained so the water was a little dirty and quite cold.  Needless to say, I was not down with trying it.  We’ll go back in a couple weeks when it’s a little warmer and a little less muddy.

Spoken too soon

B: “You’re really good at this whole snowshoeing thing Whittney–especially for your first time.”

ME: “If there’s one thing I have, it’s balance.”

…about 3 seconds later…

ME: “Woaaah!”

B: “Click.”

ME: “Stop laughing!!”
