The mornings are starting to get colder!

July 2021

July 2021

Lately I can’t remember what happened in the morning. Let’s see whether I can remember July! First, some arts and crafts. Linus constructed this phone. I’m not sure how he knows about “old fashioned” (yes, really) handsets, but he really…

First Day of School 2021

First Day of School 2021

I can’t believe it’s already time for school to start! Mina is very excited because she has Linus’s remote teacher from last year. And Linus is relieved that one of his friends from kindergarten is in first grade with him….

Resourceful!

Resourceful!

Mina is working through one of those “hidden picture” books. On one page, she was meant to find a turtle but just couldn’t. So she drew her own and found that.

A Visit to the Zoo

A Visit to the Zoo

I keep forgetting that I can request zoo, aquarium, and other passes through work. It’s such a nice benefit for Yen and the kids. But I remembered a few weeks ago and we finally had decent weather, so off they…

June 17 to July 1, 2021

June 17 to July 1, 2021

Who’s happy it’s summer? Linus! We finally found the courage to take an entire week off and disappear! This time it was the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We tried a hike but the kids weren’t really interested. On the…

Selfies

To pass the time while waiting at a restaurant, Yen and Mina practiced some expressions.

Electricity by Linus

The current pedagogy says that kids should practice writing without regard for spelling. I like it! Unfortunately when presented with his work, I have to work fast and hard to make sense of it so I can admire it. I…

Eyebrows

Eyebrows

Mina has been practicing her eyebrow raise. We’re calling her The Pebble behind her back.

Summer Sillies

Summer Sillies

It’s hot! It’s incredibly hot. But we’re getting by. Linus has new shoes, and he’s very happy. He’s wearing them to his summer circuit design class. Yesterday he made a little game using copper wire, a light, and a watch…

April, May, and June 2021

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

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

License to Drive

Watch out on the road, everyone!

Fine Art

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:

A Very Generous Tooth Fairy

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…
