Halloween Costumes

29 Oct 2013


These were taken on Saturday, which is our annual Halloween Party at the preschool.
This year the real Halloween falls on a Thursday, and we are excited for trick-or-treating, but it won’t be such a fashion show. If I predict correctly, it will be a race to get out there in costume, a race to get candy with maybe a few clicks of the iphone, and then a race to get the kids into bed.
In any case, here’s this year’s efforts. I give you Elvis, and Rapunzel.

First Day Of School – Lucy

19 Aug 2013

Lucy goes to school in the afternoons. I used to think that kids should go to school in the morning, on principle or something, so Oscar always went for the AM program. I’m no longer hung up on that arbitrary concept, and we enjoy the PM program as a paragon (fancy word in honor of b2s).
Lucy and I enjoy quiet mornings together. Then she heads to Laurel Hill at 1pm.
(This year she will go at noon on Mondays and Wednesdays)

This is the classic. Maybe next week I’ll go back, find more of these, and do a round up.

Vibrant in her pink. The skirt-under-dress is a Lucy fashion staple.

Zosia, Desmond, Lu and Ivy

There was paparazzi too. It was cute to see all the parents showing up with their cameras – to get their kid photo under the sign.

Lucy is looking to find a bestie this year…

We are in Red Room this year! First year for the Cervarich’s to be Not in Yellow Room. And a New Teacher: Lynn Lampky

Kaile and Lynn- Truly a dream team!

Love Letters

08 Dec 2012

I’ve been getting the Best notes from the kids!
I will just let you read them for yourselves.

At the preschool, they encourage the kids to compose “letters”, and the teachers take dictation.
(Lucy likes to crumple hers – don’t worry, it doesn’t mean she threw it out.)

And we got this one from Oscar:

Gangnam Style (Giants are up 2-0 in Series)

26 Oct 2012

The latest craze (song) out there is Gangnam Style.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s this:

Kinda ridiculous, but totally fun.
However I’m not trying to blog this. (even though I just did – Boom.)
I’m actually trying share a moment from Oscar’s day..

Thursday’s routine has me doing my “workday” at laurel hill.
(Today I snapped these:)

MEANWHILE, across town, Oscar gets out of school. He goes to chess club for an hour, which he loves (yay!) from 3:30 to 4:30.
After that, my friend Belinda brings her son Brayden, plus Oscar and Shayan, and Brayden’s twin sister Kayleigh, across town to JK for soccer practice.
(and this saves me the cross town trip so I luvvvvv her)…
We’re soccer moms together.

Tonight, AFTER THE GIANTS WON, AGAIN, I remembered something, so I texted her. Here is the convo:

(Did I mention the World Series?!?
MadBum was crazy good!
or should I say…. Num Num style)
