Because clearly I can’t manage more than a monthly posting… (I’m trying to be better!). Here’s the updates since birthday…
Let’s start with the unbelievable rain we’ve had this year, which has made everything so green and let unprecedented flowers bloom. So gorgeous!
Then head to school, where the LA Opera did a program where the kids learned a 45 minute opera and sang as the chorus with real opera stars. It was amazing. They made their masks, which Molly is wearing:
And Jacob is not:
And had an amazing time (even if the only snap I got of Jacob looks like he was miserable…).
Sports! Jacob is loving fencing.
And baseball tryouts were just Saturday.
We have also had sleepovers every single weekend, and went to the Demolition Derby this past Saturday. It was kind of crazy. There was one NASCAR race which was so loud it made Molly cry (you can see in the picture) and then the rest was basically cars ramming into each other. Which delighted everyone. And a jet propulsion truck. And fireworks. It was kind of insane, in the best way.
And lastly, here are pictures from Molly’s birthday trip to Coronado Island. It was postponed due to rain, and the weekend we went it was supposed to be cold and dreary but it was perfect. We spent all our time on the beach and at Hotel Del, which thrilled Molly. And we went swimming at the hotel (she was so worried it would be too cold) and had a fantastic dinner. The balcony picture is from the Loews we stayed at, which has fantastic views.
And that’s caught up! You can click on anything in the slide shows to make the pictures bigger. And I’ll try and do a catch up sooner than April!
