Well yes, we are already back at it.  This summer really did just fly by and now we are back to the grind again.  Ezra is entering middle school/6th grade and Zoe is loving 2nd grade.  I can’t believe how quickly these kiddos are growing … can you?

While Zoe was doing her garden camp, Ezra tried on drama camp at an Astoria School.  Serious  Fun offered a chance for kids to pull together a play in 6 weeks.  Some kids tackled sound and lights, others painted backdrops and gathered wardrobe.  Ezra got to hone his acting chops – as “Mike” in Homeroom – and we are so so proud of his solo!  What a talented cast!

See it here:

Not only am I super proud that my husband has a show up – until Sept 25th – but then my son and his band ‘E3″ got to play under my husband’s photographs!  The band members are Elliot, Emma and Ezra (plus a music teacher from Ezra’s old school) and they were amazing!  They packed the house at Gallery E 77 – Check out the clips from opening night here:

Can you believe it’s already been a full year?  I can’t.

We are always excited to get out to see Carl and Tricia and now… new Angelo.  His first birthday was amazing; with hours of food and fun in the pool.  I think Angelo enjoyed smashing his cake more than anything else going on … happy birthday delicious little man!

Well it seems our little muffin cannot tolerate gluten like some of us do.  We have to start a GF (gluten free) home and frankly, I’m somewhat excited to see how it may improve the health of all of us.  Surprisingly it’s a lot easier to do this than – say 10 years ago.  So much GF food is available these days and – as it just so happens – it seems Zoe is eating mostly GF anyhow (perhaps her body already knew?) She loves hard boiled eggs and seaweed for lunch, and balks at the idea of eating a sandwich with it’s bread – so half the battle is won for us.  It’s just new to my husband and I – who for years have said with pride “our kids will eat anything!”  Now sadly – our dumpling outings may be curtailed a bit – but all for a good reason.

This little trooper is done with tests and ready to eat gluten free!  And in the photo mix below; see her using my yellow sweater in a new way while snoozing in the car ride home from upstate.  (Sleeves as pants! This girl comes up with the most interesting ideas sometimes… )

Last weekend Ezra went to see George Clinton and his notorious P Funk band play at Flushing Meadows. When Ezra saw the drummer offstage, he commented that he loved his ’32nd beats’ and the drummer was so pleased that he had to sign a drum stick for E! See more about the drummer  Benzel Baltimore here: http://georgeclinton.com/family/benjamin-benzel-cowan/

Clearly my boy loves hanging with the band.

The kids loved exploring Art Tech last week – a pop up event of kid art and technology activities that they could explore.  For some reason the ‘large ball pit’ is so much more challenging than little balls.  I love how hands-on everything was … making cars in the ‘Velocity’ learning zone, racing them down various tracks, building structures with gears and brackets, and a wall that had pivoting tiles that react to your shadow.  Tomorrow is the last day to try this out so check it out while you can!
