Gold And Sulfur

November 22, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma has been learning about the elements and did this nice watercolor of Gold and Sulfur.  She's done 24 others, each with their own personality that reflects the properties of the particular element.

Sunriver Trip

October 12, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma returned from her weekend getaway with Kate and her family.  They went to their cabin near Sunriver where they hung out, played games, watched movies, and went for a six mile hike along the river.  She had a great time and took a bunch of pictures.

Lost Tooth!

September 28, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma lost a tooth yesterday.  It was one of her weird sunken ones that had been bothering her for a while.  I enjoyed writing a letter from the Tooth Fairy, demanding she keep the production up - no matter whose teeth they are - or the consequences would be dire.

Joanna showed Emma her ukulele the other day and she was so taken with the instrument that we went to the music store and she bought one. We happened to shore up right before a free ukulele lesson, which we all enjoyed.

Since then, she's been practicing different songs and chords. My favorite so far is a song from Adventure Time which was both cheerful and funny.

Emma Birthday #3

May 31, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma had a big group of friends over this morning.  They mostly hung out in the basement, playing Rock Band.  Berry and I worked on a treasure hunt earlier - the grand finale was the cake itself.

Now Emma's having a sleepover at a friend's house.  She's apparently crazy popular.

Emma Birthday #2

May 30, 2015 by Adam in Emma

At the moment, we have a basement full of pre-teen girls.  Last night we had a smaller number that helped celebrate her birthday.  Hopefully they got a little sleep last night.

Emma's 12

May 27, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma turns 12 today.  I called her on Google Hangouts and Berry, Duncan, and I sung her happy birthday.  Tomorrow she opens her family presents and we eat some cake.  Friday she has some friends stay the night.  Saturday mid-morning a bunch of girls descend on the house for cake, treasure hunts, and running about.

Emma's Concert

Joanna and I cut our date night short and went to see Emma's concert at her school.  If you look at the edge of the piano, you can see her blond head in the sea of children.

Emma Plays the Flute

January 30, 2015 by Adam in Emma

Emma had her first flute concert with her beginning band class.  She was nervous, but did great.

Pewter Skeletons

Emma and I made pewter skeletons this morning.  It was fun playing with stuff that I used to do for a living.
