Thank you Gammy for these nice, warm wool socks. Here are Laney and I enjoying them simultaneously.



My first trial run with three kids in the back seat. It’s cozy, but works just fine with people weighing less than 50lbs each.

Cameo shot of Emerson on the left. I think Laney is worried about being caught on film in the middle seat.


Kaya is really interested in learning to read lately – and she is surprising me daily with her progress. English is quite difficult to read/explain at times – she keeps asking me, for example, why the “E” is not pronounced in words like “game” and “cake.” Not such a simple concept because then you also have to understand that vowels can have different pronunciations based on the context. Spanish seems much easier to learn! Anyway, here’s a cute picture¬†that Grandma Baba sent of the girls reading on MLK day at her house.



This picture was taken a couple of months ago, but I refrained from posting it so I could frame it and give it to the grandmas for Christmas. But now that it’s been gifted, I present to you my beautiful 4-year old Kaya. Please take notice of the large white ribbon on one ponytail and the small red ribbon on the other – a Kaya fashion¬†original. Happy preschool!
