We stole these leaves off our neighbours lawn so the kids could jump in them. Probably the neighbours didn't mind?

happy birthday bob and larry

... or Annie and Henry, as we prefer to call them. We celebrated Annie's belated birthday and Henry's upcoming birthday with all the Kantors yesterday. They are fun to celebrate, those cutie-patoots, and had a great time at their party. So we're leaving the decorations up for Sunday - Henry's actual birthday - and it feels a bit like a circus in here (both because of the decor and the behaviour of children).

beauty rest

Today Annie chose to do her hair instead of have a nap. Time well spent.

first day - henry edition

Joe's not the only one going to school around here. Henry started preschool today... he will go two mornings a week. I got to go with him on Tuesday morning, but today was his first day all by himself and, though he said he was a bit nervous and that he might miss his kitty, he did great and he had A LOT to say during our suppertime conversation about everything he did and whose birthday it was and who he played with and songs he sang and backpacks kids carried and the colour of the playdough and rules for going to the bathroom and where the paint table is and and and. So school is good, says Henry. The end.

one bathroom

Many kids. It can get pretty crowded.
