Christian’s New School (la nueva escuela del cristiano)

Christian dove right in to his Spanish Immersion daycare this week like a champ! With only a few tears shed (mostly by his Mom & Dad), Cristiano comenzó a regar las plantas , jugar en el parque infantil, y asegurar un cambio de vestuario en los primeros 10 minutos de su día ! (Christian began to water the plants, play on the playground, and ensure a wardrobe change in the first 10 minutes of his day!) We were excited and awestruck to see him adapting so well to his new environment and made a pact to work on our Espaniol without the benefit of Google translate. 😉

August 2015 Marshfield Trip

Our trip to Marshfield to visit Grammy Samuels and friends was a hoot! Ann graciously opened her home to us for 2 full weeks and it became "central command" for our daily beach patrols. At 17 months, Christian was just the right age to start enjoying the sand, waves, and long naps on the beach with Mom. We rented a stand up paddle board (SUP) for a week and had a lot of fun heading out past the waves for some solo cruising off the coast. C got his first chance to stand on a paddleboard and promptly performed his quick feet happy dance. Jayne, Bruce, Ann, & Christian were beach regulars and were joined by Melissa & Peyton (Christian's Godmother) & Kim, Bruno, Sammy, & Spencer. It was great to see them! Of course, no trip to Marshfield is complete without a few lobster dinners. Thanks for joining us Aunt Mimi & Uncle Joey and for bringing dessert. Christian loves his new train and had a great story time with Aunt Mimi! It was a fantastic trip that got us away from the triple digit Texas heat and gave us a chance to catch up with friends / family, and to recharge our beach batteries. Many thanks to Ann / Mom for her hospitality and for all who took the time to swing by for a visit. See you all next year if not sooner!!
