I think that I should get a prize for being the worst blogger. I guess my only excuse is that I am kind of overwhelmed with having 3 little kids. Rest assured though we haven't stopped taking pictures and I do write in my journal once in a while, so all is not lost to memory alone. The kids are all doing well. Gio is loving kindergarten and now plays soccer. He came home from school yesterday telling me that "there is a beading class at school that I joined". After quite a bit of interrogation I am still not quite clear about what he is talking about so I am going to ask his teacher (only because the story included paying some older kids money which he got from Fernando...hmmm). Zeke and I are having fun together during the day while Gio is away. He is still an attentive and adoring big brother to Lili except that he sometimes treats her like she is his age (ie. tries to have pillow fights with her etc.). He assures me that she likes it as long as she is not crying. Often she freaks out when he just gets too close. Lilikoi's favorite activity is being raced around in the cozy coupe car by the brothers. They run as fast as they can and she moves the steering wheel back and forth and squeals and laughs the whole time. I really need to get it on video. She is a good driver although she did fall asleep at the wheel yesterday. We miss everyone and I after this summer I have a renewed desire to live near/with family all the time. Family is the best.
