A rare appearance

I knw those of you who are friends with Chris on Facebook see photos of me every once in a while, but here on this blog, they are rare. I know. I get complaints about it. Anyway, I don't know why because I'm not very photogenic. But, here's one of me and my sweet first grader. Next time you see me you can tell me to stand up straight but otherwise it's such a great picture I had to share it.
The first and second day of school have gone pretty well. Adjusting to doing work, even waldorf style, is going to take a little time after that ridiculously long summer vacation, but he'll get there.

First grade!

Noah started first grade this morning. He was so excited that he got up and was ready to go by 7:00am. His school had a "rose ceremony" where the eighth graders gave each new first grader a rose to carry into class with them. Chris is teaching at the same school and we're pretty excited to start settling into a new town and new routine finally!

I can't wait to hear how the day went!

Rocky point vacation

We had a great little trip to the beach last week. These boys loved the strawberry soda at the taco stand. It's the simple things, right?

We rented a condo right on the quiet beach where there were great little ride pools at low tide with a million tiny hermit crabs everywhere. Noah loved making friends with the crabs.

The flower cut mango on a stick was apparently Noah's favorite part of the trip.

Between us and granddad we had four kites with us. A few tangles but overall it was a lot of fun.

Our place was the one on the right. So close to he ocean we didn't even need our beach umbrella.

Hey! There's actually a photo of me. Thanks Wesley! And here's one of the beautiful sunset!

Tucson Mini museum

Noah and I visited the mini time machine museum in tucson last weekend. I know it's nerdy but I've always loved fancy dollhouses. This place was amazing. Noah loved their giant front door (makes you feel like a mini person) and the tiny person door next to it (above his head in the photo).

And here is a selection of my favorite dollhouses.

Aren't they amazing? I kinda just want toakw tiny furniture now.

New home!

We moved into a new house! Here's what it looks like so far: dining room and living room. 

From dining room table into kitchen:



(Still a little in the process of moving in)

And our bedroom in the process of getting rid of the deal orange wall color:

Weird middle tv room looking out into sun room:

Sun room/ playroom:

(If I waited until it was totally clean to take the pictures it might never happen!)

And yard:

So there it is! It's pretty sprawling and I'm sure you can't even sort of imagine the layout from these, but it's an idea :-)

When I went to make sure this post went up I found out that my last two posts were never published. I guess life is all out of order these days anyway!
