Elias's First Bike


We found this little bike at a garage sale about a month ago- It is his favorite thing. It is hard to get him off of it.

Big Boy Brusher


I was so proud watching Elias brush his teeth all by himself today. I had a big proud mama smile- Then he walked over to my make-up drawer and spit in it : 0

Bed Time Fun with Dad


I took the night off and Eric played with Elias, who has been extra cranky and tired lately while fighting a cold. Why is Dad so much more fun than Mom? Hmmm.

San Francisco


We had some fun adventures in San Francisco. Juan is now fascinated with airplanes. Any paper scrap he can find is folded into a paper airplane.

Mindfulness

Today I had the opportunity to attend a seminar on  Mindfulness and Yoga for Children by Crystal McCreary.  Amazing workshop in Fargo, ND....
