Memories…

My sweet, sentimental Linus! We are in the final hours of packing to move to our new hours. The kids are handling it really well and seem excited about the new house. Still, every time Linus identifies something that is…

Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Island

Our original plan for winter vacation this year was Sedona. We were going to spend the week hiking and getting warm. But you might remember that we hiked in a canyon near Vegas, and that the kids spent the whole hike…

To warm up, let’s have a little dance: Yen put his old tripod on Linus’s camera, so he’s been taking a lot more photos (now that they’re less blurry). He looks like such a little pro! We had an unusually…

So fuzzy!

Mina likes the slippers I got her in Florida.

Mina got a little microscope for her birthday. She’s examining each of her orange slices before she eats them.

Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018

Last week I was a little down in the dumps. As a result, I wasn’t sleeping well, and two nights in a row I came home and just sort of fell over onto the couch. I don’t remember this at…

Caution!

Caution!

Linus commissioned this sign this morning. I guess worry is genetic.

Party Animals

Party Animals

Last night Yen’s aunt had us and some of his other family over for a little party. As I always suspected, Mina knows how to turn it on when she has an audience. She chatted away with all kinds of…

Skating!

Skating!

The kids are learning to skate! Or rather, Linus is trying again to learn, and Mina is tackling it for the first time. Linus is really taking off this time. We can go around the perimeter together with me just…

October 31 – December 2, 2018

You must be unhappy with me. I haven’t been posting much lately, and now I’m going to cover the whole month of November with just a few photos? Well, you’ll see that we’ve been busy. And hopefully the few photos…

September 20 – October 20, 2018

Welcome to Fall! That means it’s hat season. Yen has instituted a routine of downtime each afternoon (now that naps are mostly over). Everyone gathers in our bedroom, and the kids relax for a bit and drink milk. Then they…

The Trans Take London: Day 7

The Trans Take London: Day 7

Last and final day. Our flight wasn’t until the afternoon, so we wandered around a bit in the morning. Poor Yen. He wanted to see Big Ben again, but it’s covered in scaffolding! Here was our destination: the Eye. Linus…

The Trans Take London: Day 6

The Trans Take London: Day 6

Coincidence is a crazy thing. My friend Douglas (who grew up in Scotland but now lives in Singapore) decided to come to the UK to visit his family at the same time we planned this little getaway. Naturally we had…

The Trans Take London: Day 5

The Trans Take London: Day 5

After four days of running around London, we decided it was time for a little fresh air. We hopped on the tube for a very long ride – long enough that the kids changed seats at least a dozen times….

Goggles

Goggles

The kids are starting swimming lessons again next week. We decided to get them goggles for the occasion. They seem to like them.
