April, May, and June 2021

Another big post to make up for not posting random little photos the last few months. With things slowly getting back to normal (at least around here), maybe we’ll be out and about more. It’s hard to tell because of…

A Day at the Esplanade

Way back in April, Yen took the kids to the Esplanade during a school break. I’m sad that I missed such a beautiful day. I think the kids started to get a little tired of posing. They brought their bikes,…

License to Drive

Watch out on the road, everyone!

Fine Art

The Bedford schools usually do an art show at the end of the year. This year’s is virtual because of the panny. Here’s Linus’s submission:

Today at school Linus’s teacher noticed that one of his front teeth was missing. She asked him whether the tooth fairy came to visit. Yen and I are the sort of liberal dreamers who don’t do tooth fairy or Santa…

After a few months of hanging on, Linus finally let us remove his loose tooth. Its friend needs to come out too, but we’ll get there.

Family Run

The parents’ organization for Bedford schools usually holds a run in the spring to raise money. Last year it was cancelled outright, but this year they decided to make it a virtual event. We got our tickets and the shirts…

Mina is always enthusiastic for exercise, but Linus often plays trains while we all work out. So I was very excited a few days ago when he asked her to teach him to do burpees, and then wanted to record…

Allergy Season

Linus and Mina are really struggling through allergy season. Linus got no sleep two nights ago, and last night was Mina’s turn. I’m not sure why she thought this would be a great place to nap this morning, but at…

A Visit with David

I’m fully vaccinated, so I hopped on a plane to visit David! We refused to try to figure out just how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other. Much better late than never. We spent most of the weekend…

Pilot and co-pilot

Wondering if I should start an Instagram called “Manatees: they’re just like us.”

Linus began collecting hubcaps about a month ago. He asks us daily to go on a hubcap hunt with him – which means driving around looking for abandoned hubcaps. What does he do with them? We’re actually not opposed to…

I asked Yen and Linus to pick up pizza. I wonder whether the toppings will all be on the side when they arrive?

Linus offers a tour of a lobster (which he calls a shrimp here but loudly corrects himself whenever he sees this video). It really cracks me up, but then again, I am his mom.

Outside!

Finally some good weather! The kids are celebrating with some quality time at the park. This may look like a fancy, exclusive park, but it’s Co Ba’s garden.
