When I start to lose faith, I remember that the topknot became fashionable, which means that someone somewhere is looking out for us mamas of little ones.

SS's first day of preschool

SS started preschool in January. No hesitation, he just jumped right into the classroom routine. He loves going to school AND Lunch Bunch. SS is in class with his friend "Ainshey" (my friend's daughter) and has also made friends with two little boys he mentions often, "Willem" and "Wyan". His teacher is amazing and has pinterest-y creative crafts every week. He is a sponge right now and and loves Wild Kratts, just like his big brother. SS is retaining knowledge about animals, and particularly likes to talk about the colossal squid and the Madagascar lemurs. He recites how Madagascar is next to Afwica, and the lemurs have a stink fight, and when our friend with the doctorate in Biology asked him if the squid had a beak, he responded, "No, he doesn't, but if he was an octopus his beak would be wight heya." And he pointed to the place the beak is, and I had to ask Dr. Biologist if he was right, and he was.

BB's First Day of Kindergarten

Once again, a half-finished post with all the pics already uploaded.

BB finishes Kindergarten in just a few weeks, but here he is on his first day!

BB sauntered onto the basketball court with the big boys with no sense of intimidation. See him in the blue shirt? 

Happy 5th Birthday BB! (almost a full year later)

Well, BB will be six at the end of this month, but these photos are all uploaded already, so why not hit publish? 

It was so special to have so many aunts and uncles from near and far  here to celebrate BB's 5th birthday! So fun to see these a year later! 

Is that not the cutest photo of all time?

Good ole' ISR. It's almost that time of year again!

Me and my bro.

Love these sister shots.

My uncle has since moved away from Tucson, and these pics remind me of just how much I miss him.
