Seven!

The boys turned SEVEN years old recently! Seven really seems like the official end of little kid and beginning of just kid years. Six was a good year. They finished kindergarten and did great. Their academic skills improved a lot, they made a lot of friends, they had a lot of fun. They were definitely... Continue Reading →

On Kindergarten

The boys completed kindergarten! I couldn't believe we were sending our little (they are so little once again at this age!) innocent souls out into the world. Were they ready? Were we ready? What would happen to them?! They were totally ready. Of course. And they had a wonderful year! They grew into their own... Continue Reading →

Six Years Old!!

These boys are now SIX! Here's what they've been up to as five year olds. Lots of big milestones this year.   First huge milestone--they both learned to read! M began first, in the spring--just all of a sudden; and E was a little bit later. Obviously the next biggest thing is that E and M... Continue Reading →

Starting School! A ramble

Our boys will begin kindergarten this week. I think I need to say that again because even though I've said it a lot in the last few months, the gravity of the idea still hasn't quite sunk in. (Hence the wandering mess that I'm sharing with you here.) E and M are starting school this... Continue Reading →

FIVE!

  Here's all the stuff M and E have been up to in 2017 as four year olds and the first month of five. I read over the Four post and a lot of their behaviors and stuff is still the same. These boys are kids now. Not toddlers or little preschoolers anymore. They have lost... Continue Reading →

Four! Fall & Winter 2016

We have four year olds! Big, giant, articulate four year olds. Who give spontaneous hugs and kisses, who fall to the floor yelling about not enough cheerios in their snacky cup, who scale couches and counters, who can entertain themselves and each other, who sometimes share nicely and who sometimes fight like dogs over jammies...

Summer Coast Adventure 2016!

Hurray for another trip to the coast! After a lot of trips to the Seaside/Cannon Beach areas, we decided to go somewhere new (Newport) this time for a two-night trip, and I'm glad, because it really did feel like an adventure. The downside of traveling farther down the coast is obviously that it takes longer... Continue Reading →

Easter 2016!

Just as this past Halloween and Christmas felt like the boys' first 'real' holidays, this Easter was the best one yet. They were so excited about the Easter Bunny coming to visit, and doing some egg hunts. We attended a group Easter egg hunt and brunch at a golf course. They were psyched for the...

Three!!

Dear sweet babies who are now most definitely not babies, You are THREE!! Three years old! I can't believe it. You are self-described "big kids" now. The six months between 2.5 and 3 were the most fun yet, I think. You love learning and doing things, and it's making life a lot more interesting and... Continue Reading →
