Robin's last day of preschool

For this year.

She had an amazing year with two nurturing, fun teachers and a good mix of peers.

And both girls look about 5 years older when they wear pony tails. 

Can someone please send a message to Time to slow it down a bit for this mama?

Happy Father's Day 2013

What says "Happy Father's Day" more than running 26.2 miles?  Not much.  Brian ROCKED the San Francisco Marathon today, with a time just shy of 4 hours.  Fantastic! The girls and I hustled out to meet him at the finish line.

With flying feet and big grins, B finished one of the toughest 15 marathon courses with a fantastic time.

The girls were ecstatic to see the medal him at the end.

And because he is hardcore parkour, we went to the SF zoo afterward with my folks to spend some quality time with the carousel and petting zoo. 

Happy Father's Day y'all!

The normal pre-bedtime routine, bath, PJ's, Teeth, books, has an addendum.  Hair.

I've been encouraging the girls to brush their hair since, well, since they've had hair.  It's one of those things I used to force but realized it's their hair and it was a good lesson that they are in charge of their bodies.  Plus it took a lot of energy.

The past few nights though, Robin has been requesting Erin to brush her hair.  We've discovered an excellent mixture of leave-in conditioner and hair smoothing oil, combined with a little spray of water, that loosens all the knots out.


And then there's the embellishment. Last night it was 3 pony tails, 3 clips, 2 embellished bobby pins, and 5 headbands.
