October 21 – November 18, 2019

You would be proud too if you made the world’s longest train! Actually, this looks like quite an epic project, and even mixed media. See that it’s gears and LEGOS? And…

September 21 – October 20, 2019

I posted two nice entries about our vacation, and then disappeared! But we get to pick up right where we left off. In fact, in these first photos, it’s the…

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…

The Trans Take London: Day 2

Twelve hours of sleep and breakfast later, we’re off to visit the Natural History Museum. We decided to take a bus, which Linus enjoyed very much. On the way I…

April 2018

I believe the theme this month is: gears. We went to an awful lot of places where the kids could explore how gears work. You’ll see! First up was the…

This might be the last post before vacation! We’ll see… Clearly we’re all very excited about it. Co Ba got Mina this bear. She is absolutely besotted. She insists on…

August 4 – August 18, 2017

Linus is always ready for his close-up! Co ba gave Mina a kazoo. We are still speaking to her – barely. I’m kidding, of course. Actually I was really proud…

February 23 – April 4, 2017

I’m sorry it’s been a while! We’re usually so busy dancing with them that we can’t stop to take photos. Mina is getting more interested in books now, though she still…
