morning dress up

malia plays dress up everyday. her ultimate dress up experience was at disney world, of course. but it's rare to get moments of micah playing dress up when it's not around halloween time. i was on my computer and he appeared in the hallway to shoot me. a little pirate (still in his star wars jammies.)

it cracks me up because he puts this face on when he's in pretend mode. so different from the pretty princess mode i'm used to from lia. 2 extremes when you have one of each. i love it.

art class

malia is all about art. she loves to draw, paint, create, etc. i'm still trying to find a good art class for her (that i can afford) outside of school. so for now, i enrolled her in a painting class through the chula vista recreation department. it's taught by ms. ofelia, an actual artist that has done murals and sells her artwork. first class, some drawing with shadowing, since painting involves both.

so behind

i am so behind in my blogging! ever since i got my new camera and my mac ran out of memory, i haven't blogged. but it's not my camera or my mac's fault, it's mine. just because it's not as easy to upload my photos, it's not impossible.
there are also some other stressors involved, but that too shouldn't stop me from blogging. so i will have to backtrack. so behind!

m&m are back in school after a 3 week break. that means back to homework time, which hasn't been so bad with lia. but because micah will be starting kinder in july (which makes me cry inside every time i think about it), we started homework time for him. he hates it. and so do i because it's taking me back to when lia started and we would argue. there's lots of whining, and stalling, and getting distracted. so roel and i have to tag team because patience is nowhere near my name. (and believe me, i pray for patience every day.) but we'll get there.
