Hmmmm Ezra seems to need his privacy more and more often these days. Can you see the cryptic message he spelled out in crayons, bandaids and toy cars on his bedroom floor?

Already leaving his sweet little school and going to the bigger school in the fall – how did this happen so quickly? My little man all grown up –
On Zoe’s last day of school she had to wear all yellow for her performance of the ‘Little Duck’ song. She practiced this religiously for weeks and even added her own musical pauses in-between the lyrics (which always cracked me up). In the end she and her friends put on a great show … you can see by the sea of parents with cameras that this was well documented ! Now I just have to get the video version out of Z’s dad’s iPhone and post it for you all to see..

Fun outdoor art, collecting bugs, toes in grass, eating outdoors with friends and warm summer breezes: these are a few of my favorite things!

Who knew this great new flea market/street fair was happening on weekends in our old Queens neighborhood (near Kaufman Astoria Studios) ? GREAT food and even a bicycle powered slush making machine – the kids were psyched. Zoe loves pink lady sushi – with mango and shrimp. YUM! So much to see, buy and eat…
because as I’ve said before, we’ve had the coldest winter ever and my heart still swells with joy when I realize my kiddos are outside without coats. Such a beautiful day!
Sorry I’ve lagged in my blogging. This week I hope to get on photos from the past 2 weekends… in Boston and in Cornwall. Lots of frolicking outdoors now that finally we can – without coats. It’s amazing.
This shot of Zoe says it all – her dad took this with his iPhone late last week. After a couple hours of school he found her napping on the back of our couch like this .. it reminded me of The Far Side cartoon ‘boneless chicken ranch‘. Let’s hope our summer schedule calms down a bit!
