We were really lucky on Monday because both James and Ethan had the day off.  Two separate holidays, but the same day.  Yay!  This rarely happens, so we decided to take advantage of it and go see a castle about an hour up the river.  It was a little chilly, but perfectly sunny and beautiful.

Project Week at Ethan’s School


This last week Ethan had a bit of a break from his normal school routine.  They mixed up the entire school and assigned kids to different projects.  Ethan was assigned to underwater animals.  Some of the other projects were pets, fire, Egyptians, horses, and many more (those are the only ones I can remember).  He had a great week…there was no homework and he got to watch Finding Nemo in German.  All week he learned about underwater animals and made his own aquarium and a water snake out of clay.  On Friday the parents were able to go and see all of the different projects and learn about what the kids learned about.  It actually worked out perfect because James had the day off for the holiday weekend and so he was able to come with us.  Yay…I didn’t have to be entirely clueless all by myself!

More fun with my new toy

I’m trying to figure out all of the different features of my new camera and so I have been taking a ton of pictures the last couple of days.  I just thought I would share some of my favorites.  I try try really hard to get some of James and Ethan, but unfortunately they are not as willing of subjects as Tybee.  Hopefully that will change.

Naptime Wake-up

The best part of the day for Ethan and James is when Tybee wakes up from her nap and they are home to enjoy it.  She always wakes up happy…well, almost always… and you know she’s awake because you begin to hear little high pitched chirping noises and sweet, happy baby talk.  As soon as you hear that, the boys race to see who gets to greet her first.  It is really cute to watch.  Here are some pictures that James took of their latest post-nap-meet-and-greet…
