It's been a busy summer of traveling, recitals, graduations and parties. Rescuing and fostering dogs has also kept us busy. Alina also attended an awesome Harry Potter party where she won a special edition of the book by guessing the number of beans in a jar. Photos below.
Zara is really growing and changing. She now says words like Mine, Shoe, Boo, ByeBye, Toe, Tea, etc. And, of course, her favorite word "NO!!" She also likes to sing. She's quite feisty right now and entering the terrible twos but I can tell she has attached fully and is doing really well in her new life.
I just received a nice promotion to Senior Director of Marketing Communications and Paul is doing well in his new position. We were both in Anaheim this week and had to jump through a few hoops to make sure the girls were taken care of during the transition. Thank God for Mom.
It has also been a Summer of sickness thanks to the constant rainfall that we've been experiencing. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in Seattle! I'm the latest to come down with this week's nasty virus. Here's hoping that the rain clears up and we all get well so that we can enjoy what's left of the summer before Alina starts Kindergarten at the end of August.
