Rest of August

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Back to work for Chris and back to full day of lessons for the girls and I. Nothing parcticularly interesting or out of the ordinary. I do enjoy having uninterrupted lesson time. It’s taken me a year, but I think I finally have a rhythm of working with both girls. Tabitha does a lot of […]

Sea World

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Last year, Tabitha’s Girl Scout troop stayed overnight at Sea World. They were able to sleep on the floor in front of the sea turtle tanks and Tabitha loved it. Not just that part, but all of Sea World. So we finally made it back as a family and went ahead and got passes to […]

Every summer I love visiting the butterfly pavillion. Some years when we’ve waited until the end, it felt like a lot of the butterflies had died off, but this year there were pockets of tons of them flying around you. One or two did land on me but I wasn’t able to snap a […]

play time

Today was another meeting with the little kids to work on their next play. The one we’re doing now is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Daisy ended up being Baby Bear. First I read the story to them, then I had the kids do a couple of crafts. I had cut out the shape of […]

Oh! Eau!

Vacation time, yay! Originally we were heading up north, but the puppies foiled that plan so a *ahem* staycation it was (gad I hate that word). First day was slated for our annual water play day at Disneyland. We started off with riding Splash Mountain twice then going to California Adventure for their water play […]

Travel Town

Monday, August 15th, 2011

As happens many Mondays, today I woke up wanting to take the girls to someplace like a museum. I find I usually feel this way the day after we go to Disneyland, which strikes me as a little odd. However, a lot of museums are closed on Mondays which limits my choices. Today I finally […]

Mystery of the Missing Week- duh, duh, duuuuuh

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

So I’m typing this up in October and just changing the date to when these events actually happened. I’m relying on my photos to help me out. Not a single picture was taken from August 8th through August 14th. I got nothing. Summer camps were done for Tabitha, but both girls were still taking one […]

Look who grew!

Daisy’s finally tall enough for Indiana Jones! It was the first ride for each girl and as neither was especially thrilled, we bribed them. Daisy chose a giant rubber snake (of course she did) and Tabitha chose an Indiana Jones fedora (again, of course she did). Despite their reservations, they both really enjoyed the ride […]

Today my baby left for camp. That would be the older one. Still my baby though. Even knowing she will have a Fan-Tas-Tic time does not console me. Countdown to Friday starting………NOW!
