Summer Vacation

The kids are on their second day of summer vacation, and they are living the dream! Today’s outing was to the Museum of Science. First they took in a movie:…

Face Drawings

Mina and Co Ba decided to decorate Linus – right before it was time to leave to go somewhere.

A Day at the Beach

Are we back in Puerto Rico? Nope, this is Massachusetts, if you can believe it. You would believe it if you felt how cold the water was. But the kids…

Linus the Photograper

Yen was experimenting with a new camera, so Linus took the opportunity to check it out too. Check out his work. Not the same camera, but the whole thing gave…

With COVID finally winding down (apparently, at least; it’s been a long journey and I’m aware I might read this later and think… Ha! Naive!), we decided to risk a…

Jan 1 to Feb 14, 2022

I think the theme of this post will be dressing up. Maybe that’s a Tran family tradition for passing cold winter days? Or maybe we’re just trying to stay warm.…

Backyard Luge

Yen and the kids built an enormous run for their sleds. The bump was Linus’s idea, of course.

Valentine

Linus gave his teacher a valentine. It’s clear how much he loves her!
