Seatbelt Hazard

After explaining the importance of proper seatbelt positioning in the event of an accident to Aiden and his friend:
  • Aiden (7): But what if it pumps out all of your air?
  • Sarah: *looks at Robert, bewildered* What?
  • Robert: You mean, 'What if it knocks the air out of you.'

The Circus

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey - the real deal. Everyone had fun, and then Chloë fell asleep during the loudest brightest part. Brain overload, I guess.

The Max ride back
Note: Portland's soft ethos must be rubbing off on us, because we are very conflicted about watching old elephants roll over and tigers being man-handled with a riding crop! Yikes. But the human acts were amazing.

Number 200

This is the 200th post - quite a milestone when you consider that I started this to chronicle a pregnancy...

Back at 100, I posted this.

This time around, I thought that I'd simply let you decide your own highlights. And since most of our posts involve the kids, I've given you the search for each below:

See you at 300!

When I Grow Up...

Aiden had to write some things about himself in class at his new school. It makes for an interesting read. Especially the last line.

"When I grow up, I want to be a Karate Master."
