New School Year...

...Otherwise known as "The day of great rejoicing for parents whose children were on their way to eating each other after spending too much time together over the summer." But that is too long for a title. 

Robbie has his first visitation day tomorrow, but sending 2 out of 3 back today felt pretty good. And thankfully, after crying daily over not wanting to go back to school, Kate happily skipped into her classroom and was warmly greeted by two good friends. 

And while Padyn is again not in class with her BFF, another good friend is in there so hopefully this year will not be as socially trying as last year was. 

Happy New Year!

Weekender to Santa Cruz

J and R went to Santa Cruz to visit some of the outlaws. As usual, R did some sleeping. And also went for a ride in the motorhome, and saw the ocean. 

So fun.

Car crash

I was just about to sit down in my favorite chair to enjoy my Saturday morning coffee when I encountered this.

According to my son, there is still room to sit down. And they are all in their families. And, if I don't play with the cars with him, he will be sad.

Move over Lightning.

Photo Attempt

We worked really hard to get a good photo for Mother's Day last week.

Dress Rehearsal

The Kates waiting for their turn to dance like kittens.

Birthday Boy!

4 years old today! Unbelievable. So grateful for this beautiful loving boy.

First Pool Day of Season

While it isn't as warm as it was yesterday, the rest of my family decided that today was the day to return to our pool. Not me. Super cold. But they are having fun.

What do you do when there is a high wind advisory and you don't want to play at the park (as you usually do) while waiting for your sibling I get done with piano? This...

Gotta love the iPad.

Palm Desert Spring Break 2013

Here are just a few photos from our vacation last week. I have many more on my camera, but these are what I have handy on my phone (see previous post).

This app won't let me post videos or else I'd show you have much Robbie enjoys being tossed in the pool by Daddy.
