What does Zoe do when Ezra is away at camp by day and she’s bored? Get creative of course!

and of course when Ezra got home, he also had to contribute:

Well this was their biggest performance to date… in a theater that holds 2000 and about 500 people arrived.  They were the youngest band there (most others approaching college age or older) and they were really solid!  I was so proud.  Better yet, Ezra was lit up like a Christmas tree for the rest of the day after being on such a big stay with a crowd: he loved it!  I don’t know where these kids get their fearlessness from.  Not me!

I was invited to speak at Zoe’s ‘Multi-culture Day’ at her school, and got a chance to see all the projects they’ve been working on this year. The walls and bulletin boards are jam-packed with all sorts of cool projects: all about pulleys on the science board, heroes on the writing board, Spanish and English key words and 3D shape facts on the Math board. I don’t think I was doing this much in second grade! But it all looks so fun, I kinda wish I could go back to grade school. We will miss this sweet little school when Zoe leaves this late spring. Ezra went through here up until 2nd grade as well, and we wished we could keep them in this warm, nurturing, creative environment forever. (Plus they let this mamma come in and add some creative flair to backdrops and bulletin boards sometimes.. which I love). But it’s off to ‘bigger girl school’ in the fall – thankfully many of her classmates will be going with her.

I love that the city put in these amazing cherry blossom trees on our block.  For one brief week in the spring we get trees full of pink flowers and then – bam – it’s like someone sneezes and they all fall off the trees all at once!  Nothing like a blanket of pink petals under your feel.  Even Louie is afraid to soil it.

Meanwhile Zoe is prepping to be a ‘Lost Boy’ in her school’s upcoming “Peter Pan” play.. we’ve been working on adding scraps of fur and twigs to her costume (but of course she wants it to be ‘glamorous’ at the same time).  I should add that Zoe has been studying to present ‘The Life of Coco Chanel’ to her class.  Check her out below – beret and French accent ready to go!  And we made a trip to Boston for cousin Sophia’s Holy Communion.  These girls and their heels!  Adorable..

Hello winter. You are awfully long.

Good thing us NYC kids got some great museums to go to – to take away the winter blas with some color (rather than fly off to somewhere tropical, not always possible!) We spent a dreary gray day at the MoMA and loved the explosion of color. I love seeing all the really young art enthusiasts… my kids are not alone in their love of art, that’s for sure!

Have a great weekend.
This Frantisek Kupka painting should brighten your mood:

My little muffin chose to do a quiet weekend in the country, playing with a friend’s cats (and Louie) for her long MLK weekend birthday.  She has a new interest in karaoke and singing, so we added a mic to the scene and had a lot of fun.  Today is really officially her birthday, and she is toting 20 gluten free cupcakes to school to celebrate with classmates (and may even convince us to have a 3rd party with ‘the Hazels’ as well).

I am so proud of this fearless, funny, constantly surprising little gal who is growing too fast!  We love you Zoe!
