Memorial Day: Kite Flying

Memorial Day: Kite Flying

Yesterday I took the kids outside to fly kites. We started in our front yard which didn’t work that well. We decided to move over to the vacant land nearby. Sanyu started out saying she hated kites. Once we got the kites in the air […]

This is our second time attending the annual Lancaster Egg Hunt. I try to take my children to as many events as possible. Since this is a local event we always run into some friends from school, ballet and our other activities. Here are some of my best pictures from this year. (more…)

Food Post: Apples at the Park

Whenever I take my children out I try to pack food for my babies that is healthy. We often take fruit with us on our outings. What do you pack?

I’m Excited About Story Time

I’m Excited About Story Time

Today I will be taking Ali to his first story time. Well, technically the story time is for Sanyu. She’s been going to story time since she was six months. This will be the second time we are attending story time at the library near my mother’s house. Since we moved into my parents house in February we haven’t been visiting the library that often.

The library isn’t right around the corner like it was before. We actually have to get in a car and drive there. My daughter got used to going to story time every day in our neighborhood. Sadly, this library only offers two story times a week.

Now that Sanyu will be taking more classes including ballet and now soccer I’m adding a visit to library as part of her regular schedule as well. I know she enjoys reading. If you come into our house, she will give you five books to read to her. I want to continue to take her to the library as well as read to her more often. I want her to continue to be passionate about reading. I just hope all my family members will stop running away when she brings them a book. LOL.

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

I know I’m bad. The last time I’ve posted on here was in October. So much has happened in my life since then. I found out I was pregnant in October. I moved out of my old house in February. My uncle died in April. […]

It’s Storytime

Sanyu started bilingual storytime and “regular,” storytime this week. I was excited to be going back to our regular routine. Sanyu had been attending storytime at our local library since she was six months old. This year they added a bilingual storytime at our library. They had the activity at other libraries but just not the location near our house. (more…)

Ballet Photoshoot

So I decided to do a Ballet photoshoot with Sanyu the night before her first dance class. Yes I know I should’ve done it during the day. I just didn’t have time. Here are the best pictures from the shoot. We will definitely be doing some more […]
