Photo dump

I cut my hair. Short! This was taken after getting in the car from leaving the salon. The next morning I had the required freak-out when I couldn't recreate this look and instead looked a bit like a mushroom top, but no regrets.
We brought lunch to my Grandmother in Lynden and Edie showed her a book she'd made at school:
I don't really know what's happening here. This was a private moment that Jeff had with Edie and I'm just glad it was documented. Because you're welcome Vogue - here's your next fashion spread:

Our days lately are ruled by Edie's social schedule. We are very lucky to have found all these little girls in our neighborhood. They all live within easy walking distance of our house and are all 4.5-6.5years old. We've started a cycle of playdates that we each host once a month, which means all these girls are together every Wednesday for 2 hours after school. All of the Moms either work from home or have a younger child they care for full time at home so it buys us all 3 days per month of free afternoon childcare. And the girls love all getting picked up by different moms and walking home from school as a big, giggly group (we all live within 3 blocks of school). We just got word that a new family is moving in a block away with 2 more girls in the same age range so we are excited to grow the neighborhood pack. As a bonus, the moms have started an every other Wednesday get together at various bars/restaurants in the evenings, and the dad's have claimed the alternate Wednesdays for drink nights.
At my monthly Wednesday playdate:

Feeding the ducks at lake Padden:
Another Wednesday playdate. This family boasts a huge hot tub so the girls pack their suits for school that day and we pick them up all wet at 5pm after an afternoon of playing in the jets.

Fun! Love your hair, you fabulous girl! And it's so crazy to see Edie doing things that we did growing up in Bellingham. Happy you are happy.
