Act I

Puppet play


22 days until Micah turns 4

Skating wrap up

On Saturday the boys had their last skating lesson.  Both have improved.  Shawn and I laugh when watching Micah.  He has a ball and is such a "clown" as Shawn says.  Any time someone falls he gets near them and falls too and then they giggle together.  It is as if he has life all figured out at 3, it is all about having fun.  

Noah on the other hand is very serious.  He has really taken to skating and by lesson 3 was head and shoulders above all the kids in their session.  The teacher did take time to teach him advanced moves to work on.  She gave each of them directions for signing up for next classes.  Micah will move on to Beginners (from Pre-Beginners or those who have never been on the ice) and Noah can skip the next and go to Level I.  I am thrilled my boys will be able to skate, especially since we have a rink across the street from our back yard.

C & me

I found this photo on my camera.  Noah took it and I kind of love it.  I remember that Celia had just woken up and was grumpy.  The boys and I were trying to cheer her up.  Just regular life.

Afternoon at sea

One.  Two.  Three.  Kids in boats.


I brainstormed this project for the boys over a year ago after seeing a cool display at Nordstorm.  Bought all the supplies, the boys picked out cars and then we never got around to it.  Today was the day.  So fun to see how they arranged the cars and nice to have more original art for their walls.

Dress rehearsal

I wanted the kids to try on their shirts before a family photo shoot.  This is what I work with for getting quality shots.  Let's hope the photog did better.

Llama llama

Last week Noah's school had spirit week.  Each day had a theme for dressing up.
Monday - pajama day
Tuesday - favorite book character - Noah choose Llama llama red pajama and it was as cute as could be.
Wednesday - school spirit
Thursday - wacky tacky
Friday - Hawaiian
The week was capped with a Hawaiian theme carnival for the kids.  It was a fun, crazy and successful event.  A friend and I ran the limbo game for an hour and I was reminded just how hard being a teacher must be.  I could NEVER do it.  I am so thankful we have this wonderful school for our kids to attend.
