Off to school

September 1st, 2009

This was yesterday.

CT had just rolled out of bed and wasn’t ready yet.

PJ is set and ready to roll.  In fact, she ran onto the bus so fast that I had to go on after her to kiss her goodbye.

KP was all ready but had to wait another day for school to begin, but got to visit for an hour and hang out with his new class mates.

All in all, the day went pretty smoothly.

And today…KP headed off to his first day of ALL DAY Chinese Immersion Kindergarten (didn’t even want to stop for a photo-can you tell by the blur?).

With his big brother giving him ample instructions before leaving the door, his big sister taking his hand as they stepped onto the bus together and his wide anxious eyes waiting for all the new adventures to begin, I am sure this day too will be great.

Unless he goes insane because he has no idea what the teacher is talking about.

I’ll let you know if that happens.

Sneeking up

I love this photo of PJ.

It just makes me giggle.

Year long photo project: 3 of 3

May 18th, 2009

KP turned five, as you know, last Friday.  That said, I have embarked on his 5 year photo project, which I love to do and gives me a reason to have my camera at the ready everyday.

I decided when CT turned five that I would do a year long photo project, a photo a day, of each child of their fifth year.  Then ultimatly, I would compile it into a book for them.

I can’t believe I am at the end of the line.  The books have not been made yet.  I want to give them out once each one has theirs complete.  In fact, CT’s photos have not even been compiled yet.  God bless flicker, it made it so much easier to keep it all organized with PJ’s project.

So off we go.  But I’m already wondering if I should do it all again at 10.

What will they be doing then?  What will they look like?  How much will they change?  It’s amazing the change you see throughout the year when you’re looking through a lens.

You should try it.

First love letter

May 6th, 2009

Here it is, PJ’s first love letter. She wanted to send it via Chinese Lantern.

The roll of papers all say the same thing.

I think she loves him 30 times the number of papers in the paper roll.

We decided together that maybe it wasn’t the right time to give it to him yet.

Like by about 20 years.

Friday’s Magnolia

And here it is.

What amazing progress in just one week.

Thursday’s bloom

April 23rd, 2009

This is what 80 degrees and sun does for blooming trees.

So nice.

Wednesday Magnolia

April 22nd, 2009

Getting bigger?

The sun has come out…I want more action little bud.

Come on, bloom.

Tuesday Magnolia

Magnolia Monday

April 20th, 2009

I’m on magnolia watch.

My favorite tree in the neighborhood is filled with soft, fuzzy buds and we are going to take a daily look to see what happens to it throughout the week.

Hopefully by Friday, when the sun starts to shine and the temps warm up, the tree will be filled with beauty.

Happy Easter

May this day find your heart singing, your belly full and your mouth filled with most of your teeth.
