Summer Concerts Have Begun!

The kids had a blast playing together at Temple City's first concert of the summer. We are sad that it was our last time seeing Mahalia as her family is preparing to move to Minnesota soon.

Hannah "Rescues" the Caterpillar

Hannah found this caterpillar just starting its chrysalis on a garden tool bag and decided that it needed a different place to "hang." So our insect lover found a place for it on our orange tree.

First Day of Summer

The girls spent the day in their bathing suits doing lots of fun summer related activities... shadow drawings, sun prints, sand mosaics, sand castles... we had a picnic lunch, made popsicles and enjoyed them after playing in the sprinkler.

End of Season Shows

Both girls did an amazing job at their end of year show. Hannah wowed the crowd with a spectacular handstand. Alyssa was placed in the front of her group as she knew all the dance routines the best. We are so proud of them!

A House is a House for Me

Hannah (not pictured, but very much a part of this) and Alyssa have made our backyard orange tree their home away from home. They have been quite content for the past week or so playing this way. And they also have been playing really well together too!

Park Academy Birthday Celebration

Alyssa was very excited about being in the birthday circle at our Park Academy park day today. As usual, she decided to become shy about standing with the other kids (turns out they were ALL boys) and held onto mommy's hand and pulled mommy away even as I was trying to stand at the birthday circle with her. However, her fear suddenly went away when "Happy Birthday" was being sung!
