Sum Sum Summertime

Apparently a trim can really bring out Margot's curls!

Nashy got a SCOOTER!
The kids love to play construction. Nashy calls himself a "decstruction" worker. HA!
Margot ready for work.
Nash loves to run back and forth and all around the bottom floor of our house. Usually half dressed.



>Margot loves to play with blocks! She uses her imagination and puts together great playscapes.

Colors and Sorting

We missed our last visit of the season with our friend from Parents As Teachers, so I'm kinda taking a guess at some things she might have brought for Margot. Nash loves his toys and doesn't always understand that it's time to pass them on, or at least share them with Margot. They've always been his. But it's so amazing to watch her learn to play with them and figure them out in her own way, totally differently from Nashy. So in the mornings while Nashy's at school, the toys come out and I try to help/teach Margot, and watch and see what she does with them. This morning we were working on colors and sorting. I guess it's probably a little early for her to know her colors and how to sort, but never too early to start learning.

The Great Caper

Why is it that one day Nash loves grapes, and the next he doesn't? The same is true with macaroni and cheese (he thinks he likes the white kind, but not the orange kind) and he loves peanut butter sandwich crackers from Trader Joe's, but oh-NO he does NOT like peanut butter. This very complex little boy has big responsibilities now and makes big decisions. Let's hope he continues to make the right ones most of the time! So, last Saturday Ray and I were having "stinky" breakfast, bagels and lox, which we load up with onions and capers. Nash decided that he would like to eat capers. An what Nash does, Margot does too. Which led to the great caper eating fiasco.


Nash and Margot ate so many capers that I started to wonder if the acid in the brine would hurt their tummies. But, as far as I know, no tummies were hurt in the eating of capers, though whole caper populations were consumed.

Can you read this, G?? We miss you!

She's a wild one

After splashing around in the pool this morning, Emmy roamed around in her birthday suit for a few minutes. She was playing very quietly, so I rounded the corner to see what she was doing and had a good laugh when I saw her pigtails and tush in the kitchen. Stick her in some heels and she's every boy's dream.

Memorial Day Weekend Fun!

Fun and games outside! Kiddie pool + assorted sprinklers + water table + "Daddy home" + beautiful day = magical weekend for Margot and Nash.

Before heading outside, Margot is stationed at her favorite spot, where she's not supposed to play...


Nashy doing his thing. The kid did at least a dozen run-and-jumps into the pool.


This is Elmo's 3rd Summer sprinkling us with water. For this we are grateful.


Run, Emmy! Run!


Margot has recently discovered the joys of snuggling! Hoorah!
Yes, Margot's in pants even though it's 90 degrees outside. Because she has fallen on the same knee three days in a row and OOOOOOF does it look awful.
