Marshall Milestone!

Our son Marshall who is 6 months old cut his first tooth today! I have mixed feelings about this. I am happy for this cute and wonderful milestone but I am sad too because it just proves my baby is growing up.... fast. I will miss his toothless grin!

Color Me Proud!

Hannah started pre-school last week for the first time. She goes to this great school on Tuesday's and Thursday's. I do most of my communicating with her teacher (Ms. Lorra) via e-mail. I received the most amazing update from her teacher. I will post it for all to read. I am not usually one to brag but sometimes I am just so proud. You will have to forgive me.
Hi Melissa,
I wanted to send you a quick email because drop off and pickup is always crazy and I don't always have a chance to talk with parents about the school day. I wanted to let you know how very impressed I am with Hannah's first week and her abilities. She truly is adjusting well to preschool and is doing great during circle time. I only had to ask her a couple of times to stop climbing on Carsen, but I now understand there's a history there with the two of them. She's doing great with participating and sang the "b" song solo both on Tuesday and Thursday. That was awesome! Her coloring skills are absolutely amazing. I'm not just saying that. Most girls this age are able to color better than the boys because they develop fine motor skills quicker, which is needed for coloring details. However, most girls are not able to finish an entire page, nor are they nearly as good at staying in the lines. Amazing!I'm glad to hear she started writing the letter "B". It's amazing how much stuff they pick up at this age! Talk with you soon -Lorra
Is that not the nicest note?!
I only hope these nice notes keep coming and not ones informing me that she's pulling her friends pony-tail or something like that. You know what I'm saying?

Street Performers

We were so impressed by the Art and Talent Boston had to offer. Everywhere you turn throughout the city you see people sharing their skills and talents to entertain and of course for some profit. We saw a group of men break dancing, a native American playing a unique whistle instrument, a man singing in the Subway, a charicature artist, and many more! I am posting the videos of some of the talent we saw. Really amazing!

Our trip to Boston!

CHEERS! I always liked the show Cheers!
Go Boston!

We were on the Long Wharf!

This picture is of Hannah looking so SWEET!

My cute boy...he's got something to say!

Long time!

Marshall was so tired from all the excitement....He finally met all of his extended family. They loved him and thought he looked just like his Daddy! This swing was a life saver.

Sorry it's been so long since my last entry. Vacation was a blast! Coming home and getting back into the swing of things has been a little rough. I will mostly post pictures and describe them....so much to cover. Basically the Festa was GREAT and then we spent several days in Boston which was probably my favorite part of our trip. My Marriott hook-ups rocked! We stayed at a full service property 10 minutes from Boston and was so close to the T (subway). Went into Boston everyday!
