'round here

the (almost!) two year old likes to count... she is demonstrating her skills to daddy here.

the four year old is constantly in costume. constantly.

regular blog readers will notice that the blog is going to slow down a bit for the next few weeks. mostly because we are going to be traveling (more on that shortly) and also because we are digging ourselves out from a really, really busy summer and starting the annual slowing down that comes in the Fall. slowing down is very much appreciated at the moment. isa has started back to school and the school year work/babysitter schedule is back to the new normal. these transitions are most certainly welcome, for the most part, but it doesn't mean that they always go seamlessly. anyone who has spent consistent time around isa can tell you that transitions are not her strong suit-- she might not verbalize this, necessarily, but we can almost always predict some really unpleasant behavior from her in times like these. sylvi seems less sensitive to change, luckily, but everyone is just a little thrown off when the weekly routine takes a u-turn. and it just so happens that we are going to be traveling for the next week as well! phew. we are more than ready for a real vacation and can't wait to hit the road. the roadtrip mobile is already packed! and while we've got a ton of things to get done in the next 48hrs (the list is dauntingly long), we will be on the road before we know it. so we will try to update here and there but i am guessing computer time will be sparse, and that's perfectly ok with me! catch you on the flip side!
