all four kids at camp

Just picked up the kiddos from camp.  All happy and covered in mud in all the overlooked places, behind their ears, back of knees, between toes.  And when I asked Cort if he brushed teeth over the two weeks he was there he said "twice!"

Piles of wet duffle bags, wet sleeping bags and smelly socks in the new van and we're heading to our Arlington house today.

Poas volcano walk


 Made it to Poas today, saw a bunch of coatis and Nannou purchased earrings.  Super fun until the ride home when Cort was bugging Billie and I asked her to move 2 inches to the left "Fine!  I understand that you care about Pikachu more than you care about my face!!"   Never a dull moment.

for the birds

 We are still here.  Went to Peace Lodge one time.  It was fun.

monkeys on the beach

Here's just what I pictured would be happening when we moved here.  Not so much in San Jose but I foresee weekly beach trips becoming part of our home-schooling routine.  (notice the monkey on the roof of the restaurant).

Goodbye to great friends

My kids have the nicest, most thoughtful, witty, creative, silly, and wonderful friends on the planet!
Today was the last day at park day before the bigs head off to camp.  Seems like just about 5 weeks ago we arrived back at park day and were greeted with hugs and smiles after 2 years away.

Sigh.

Tough Mudder Man



 He did every obstacle...all 22 of them.
Electric shocks, ice bath and all that.  "that was fun."

officially summer


 Summer is here, it's official...because my kids come home covered in mud at least 5 times a week!  Sloane just pops in for a snack...do I ask her to wash her hands before eating?  Only if we're sitting down at the table.  A little dirt is good for you.

kickin it old school

One day we went back to 1771.  Visiting Claude Moore Colonial farm on a weekday morning is so much fun.  Talking with the family who runs this working farm as if it actually is 1771- they work with garden tools in their bonnets and skirts.
