1st Day of Chinese School 2014

We’ve had lots of firsts around here.

Last Monday, Sianna started her first day of Chinese Kindergarten. She attends each day from 8am – 11:40am. So far, three hours of Chinese immersion is enough for her. (Actually, the class sleeps for 2 hours in the afternoon so I don’t see any point in paying

2011 December Daily :: 30 :: Happy 5th Birthday Schäfer!

By the time I finished nursing Selah, Schäfer was already out of bed sitting on the couch in the living room. Hubs and I sang him “Happy Birthday” as soon as we saw him. He bounced from side to side as we sang. He’s pure sunshine.
