Last night was Isa's Back to School BBQ and open house. The weather was amazing and it reminded me of all those Roosevelt picnics (just add three or four more languages and a dozen or more ethnicities)! It was also nice to meet some of her friends that I hear so much about. Her teacher is wonderful and Isa just loves her.
Robbie and I have learned how to enjoy our evenings together again. This of course is coupled with the onset of prime time, and we've been weeding through which new shows to follow or not. So far we're giving Jericho(sp?) two thumbs up.
Love to all.

We had a full and exciting weekend! Sat morning Isa had a birthday party at the Build-A-Bear workshop, allowing Robbie and I to wander and take care of some shopping. In the afternoon we organized and cleaned. I sorted through endless projects and school assignments and sent out numerous bags of recycling!
Sunday morning while Isa and Robbie went to church, I hiked the 8 mile annual Wildwood Run/Walk with Raven. We finished in about 2 1/2 hours and quickly crashed with sore muscles.
I lay on the floor with Isa watching Mary Poppins before recovering enough to hit the Polish Festival. Robbie had a Hurling match and met us there later. After a few hours of perogies, sausage, and polka we headed home for a movie and bed.
After all that a week of work will feel quiet!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMIE!!! It's so nice to hear that you are able to take a little time for yourself these days - keep it up :)
Well, avast maties - I think that's the extent of my talk like a pirate day! It was great to see everyone at graduation, and with that step done the postings about me will probably get quieter.
Robbie's classes seem to be settling down, and Isa now looks at school as routine. We're gearing up for the holidays, and Robbie and I are getting excited to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays, which we haven't been able to for the last few years. Good times ahead!

Vodoo dolls??? That may explain a lot!
For those coming up tomorrow, I'll be at the school early, and Robbie is off work at 1:30 pm. He was planning to go down to the portfolio show until 2:30 and then go pick up Isa at school before coming back downtown to the grad ceremony at 4:00. I thought it might be nice for us all to go out to dinner afterwards - so long as everyone agrees NOT to argue over the bill.
I can't wait to see you all. Call if you have any questions.

It's hard to believe it's been five years since the 9/11 attacks. It is one more reminder of how happy I am that Adam has created this site to keep us all connected.
Robbie and I delivered Isa to her first day of Kindergarden. As soon as she found her desk she was ready for us to go. Sigh... long go are the days where she cries when we leave.
Robbie packed up Scabbers the rat for another year at Hillside. While he's happy that he appears to have another great group of kids, he has decided that this will probably be his last year teaching.
I'm getting ready for graduation - writing my speach and finishing my portfolio - oh, and still working away at my job.

Hello all from PDX! Robbie continues to prep for the new school year, and I feel more and more like I'm working a real job again. Isa will be starting school on Monday, and our life moves ever forward!
We will be down on Sat. morning to march in the parade with Mom and some folks she knows. It is mostly exciting because we get to dress up.
I'm busy working away on my portfolio and graduation speech. Only one last presentation tonight and I'm almost done. Yeah!
A few of you have been in touch about coming to graduation. If anyone's interested please let me know.
The day after graduation the three of us will be heading to the beach for the SOLV annual beach clean up. We figured it would be a good idea to teach Isa by example - hmmm I hope the weather holds for this lesson.
