First day of school.

This is not technically school. But we are attending homeschool classes this year once a week and here is our first day of classes. Our first day of homeschool was completed while in our pajamas. 'Cause that's how I roll. 

Let's contrast that with our second day of classes, where I let Charlotte choose her own outfit.

I think it really reflects her individuality. 


He scowls.

Max is really a good natured kid. Even more than that, he is a perpetual flirt who wins hearts wherever he goes. I often have people asks me if he ever stops smiling. 

Well, let me tell you, he does. Not only does he have quite a temper (which is softened by his easy going nature), he has a mighty scowl.

I have decided he is just a high personality modifier. Which makes sense, because I am, too. But it is surprising that it is evident this early in life. 



I have mixed feelings about introducing our kids to chopsticks. On the one hand, I applaud myself for exposing them to Culture. On the other hand, it is a big mess. 

On the other hand, they do clean up the mess for us when we leave the restaurant. So that's a factor.
