Yesterday I had a Dr's appointment in OC and I went by myself- I also got to use a gift card I've had for almost a year to get some maternity jeans, and new shoes (crocs, again- but this time they are the Mary Jane style- and black so they'll go with anything!). After I stopped by my parents apartment and had a wonderful visit, including a walk through downtown San Clemente to my favorite deli in the whole wide world, Billy's. We enjoyed our sandwiches on the chilly patio and walked back to a warm cozy apartment, where with the flick of a switch a warm fire welcomed us!

When I got home and gave Grace the treats that her Papa sent for her she called to say thank you and ended up chatting for almost half an hour! She found a nice spot...

Or so she thought, as she laid across the stairs, Ford decided to jump over her and he's no little pup anymore, so one of his huge paws scraped her...

She proudly showed me the art lesson she had done with her Daddy. This first one shows her attempt at drawing Scooby Doo from memory on the top, then with a little help from Daddy on the bottom left and a third try by herself on the bottom right...

Hey Tiff, great to hear from you! Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you all. Are you moving before or after the baby?

Thanks for the feedback on TV; I've been reading up on the unschooling experience of it from a reply to Karen's blog, and I feel less worried about it, and yet, I find that I personally, don't want it around to tempt me to zone out and I can think of more fun things to spend $50 a month on. I think I like the idea of being TV free as much as I sometimes dislike the experience of getting glued to TV.

Since Maddie said the other day she doesn't want TV at our house, like they have it at my sister's house, and Harry hasn't asked for it again, for now, I'm going to let it slide....

Say Hi to Suzanne for me and to Shannon. I feel terrible that I've been so sketchy in replying to emails from her. It sounds like things are going well for her and the kids and I'm glad you're having some cool Mom-time events with her and Bev and the group.

Great to hear from you!
