Mark is up from Vancouver for the weekend. My tolerance for a busy social scene is quite low, but it's very nice having them here -- I've learned that I just need to get some time alone every day, and preferably some exercise. They love spending time with the kids and we all get caught up on what's going on. Fun to share meals and laughs.
Apparently I'm back into the repetitive portraits of the kids. Yes, we all know what they look like already, but for some reason this is fun for me. Anyway Ezra's fixated on balloons, hanging out, exploring, goofing around and hurting himself frequently. Ella has been her usual happy self most of the time, but has seemed a bit edgy the last couple of weeks. Enigma Ivy had a breakthrough on the fiddle this week, beaming with pride after her first Fiddlekidz session.
