first steps

In other firsts this week, Serena took her first steps tonight!


But this video is from a few nights ago of her getting up to stand.  All the kids were so excited.

first day 2012

This week the kids went back to school.  Ava is now in second grade, while Norah started kindergarten!  Norah wasn't quite as thrilled about kindergarten as Ava was.  In fact, the teacher had to literally peel her off my leg the first day.  But now that we're done with the first week, Norah is settling in, and even making new friends (one who is named Plum - yes, Plum).  Ava as always was fully of energy and excitement for school.  She loves getting into projects, reading new books, and playing with her friends.

I think it's going to be a great year!

As a late birthday present for me, and an early birthday present for Mason, we got tickets to see Cavalia!  For those who don't know what it is, it's like Cirque du Soleil, but with horses.  I've wanted to see it since I first saw that white tent in San Francisco back in 2004.  It can again to the Bay Area in 2011, and then this summer.  I was soooooo excited to go.  And it was amazing.  A-MA-ZING.

Everyone should go.
