Aiden Rides to 1st Grade

Aiden started 1st grade last week. He looked all mature and grown up. Here he is waiting for the bus (first time taking a bus to school - kind of a big deal).

Chloë Turns 2

Our girl is growing so much. She warms our hearts so much and is always good for a very tight hug and kiss. She's a great little sister and loves to share brother's own toys with him!

This year, we celebrated her birthday (she requested Dora) at Sarah's parents' cabin.

Look closely at her shirt, then look at the amazing cake Sarah spent 5 hours making - she's getting quite good, yes?

Birthday presents = all Dora stuff accept a box of non-Dora-branded crayons. She loves her new "pack-pack."

Notice Chloë peeking behind the boys in the last shot.

Chloë, we love you so much! You make me so happy to be your daddy. Stay sweet and never stop kissing us! Happy Birthday, little one.

  • Robert: Is it bad?
  • Aiden (7): *Appears holding his scratched finger* It's OK. I was tough. I just sucked on it.
  • Robert: Manly.

Learn how this was both a figurative and literal statement for "suck it up" here.

Great Grandma

We recently visited Sarah's Grandparents in Chico, CA. (9-hour drive). Chloë really took to her Great-Grandma Dorothy and Great-Grandpa Delmer. She also really played hard with the vintage toys they've been saving for little ones in the extra room.

  • Sarah: What do you mean?
  • Aiden: I dunno. Like, is it Football Season or Mating Season or what?
  • Sarah: Mating Season?
  • Aiden: Yeah, or something.
  • Sarah: Let's just go with Football Season.
