Our son, the disciple of discipline

We went to drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway today. It is one of fall favorites. Enjoy the pics.

A Gratuitous Lighthouse...hehe..

Hi all--Just checking the blog and thought I should add something. The lighthouse is from San Juan Island (especially for you dad--they have 3 just on that 1 island) The picture of me is on the ferry leaving the San Juan's after our last trip of the summer there a few weeks ago. The VW is one of the soapbox cars from the derby they had racing down our hill in fremont. We are both doing really well and settling in to fall. We had great visits from Dan, Carson and Deena (spelling?) and now just need to get Chris and Rachel out here sometime before we leave Seattle. We are thinking that might be sooner than later if Alan gets accepted to his first choice Master's programs---They are both in Madrid Spain! Alan is grinding through his last year at UW right now, so we might be in for some changes in June, we'll see. Hope everyone is doing well, looking forward to seeing you all in a month! Love, Sunni

Piano Recital

Brookie and Emma had their second Piano Recital today. It was very successfull. They both played their pieces perfectly. It was a costume recital, they dressed up as Reniassance princesses. And I think Will ate all the Green Chili dip at the refreshment table. He kept saying "hot, hot" as he is putting more in his mouth. It was hilarious. Dan also got there in time for Brookie and Emma's pieces, so it was great.

a very Eventful week

This week, Emma got into NACC (the charter school where Brookie goes). It gets even better: She is in Brookie's class. The school only has 120 students total (K-6) and K-1 classes are combined. So they are so excited. I'm not sure what to think but we are going to give it a shot. I think I'm excited too. Emma starts Kindergarten on Monday.

Also have to mention that Emma also has a loose tooth (hers is on top).

Last but not least, Kiwi is missing. Last night when Dan got home around midnight, the cat snuck out the garage door and Dan could not find him in the dark. We have not seen him yet today. Going on 14 hours. The kids are sad. We've already searched the whole neighborhood over.

Here is the story Brookie wrote about how she planned to get that loose tooth OUT!!!
Dan and I always get a good laugh out of her phonetic writing. Here goes (good luck deciphering):
Get a cher pot it ondr the fan and pot all the pilos in the haws on top the cher Brookie stans on the cher pot a pes of twolit pepr on the fan pot the pes of twolit pepr on Brookies los toth then pol the cher a wey let her grop and let her tos toth! fol awt!

Weekend in DC

We just got back from a weekend trip to DC. Aaron Taye, one of my best friends got married. It was fun to see people from Boise. I saw Adam Taye and promised that I would tell Sunni hi for him (I will send you his email). There was a playground near the reception and Matthew kept riding this slide, even though he would come crashing down on his bottom every time. He giggled every time. The leaves are just beginning to change there. I love DC, it is one of my favorite cities. CG

Looth Tooth

Brookie is soooo excited. She Finally has a loose tooth. She has been waiting for this for over a year. Last year all through kindergarten everyone else seemed to be loosing teeth except for her. Now she has two, her bottom front teeth. And she could not be more excited. They are not too loose, just a little so when Thanksgiving comes around we should have some fun teeth (or not) to show off.
Hope you are all doing well. honey gee
