i'm not the only one that is loving our new little portable record player from targs.
i thought i might be
only half of my "super fun" mommy ideas are ever really embraced.
but the record thing has taken hold.
Sleeping beauty is a favorite of the little sweetheart.
(jake and ty LOVE this vintage peter cottontail one, i have to take a photo and share it...tomorrow)
here is the thing with trying to explore new places and everyone having expectations...
it's hard to manage.
reedo and i feel bad for stirring things up by moving to hawaii, so we try and make people happy by finding "new" fun places and things to do.
but that creates a lot of tension, i'm telling you.
are we going to a beach that has waves to surf?
can ella swim there?
are there going to be a billion tourists?
is everyone smiling?
did we bring lunch or will we have to find a place (besides mcdonalds and japanese food)?
none of these are huge problems.
but all together, they get exhausting to manage.
still, there is beauty all around and i am learning how to look for it here
we visited the north shore for the first time this weekend.
it was rad.
if it wasn't like 2 hours away from reedo's office, we'd live there, hands down.
it's painfully quaint.
we did minimal schoolwork today.
trudged ahead in geometry (my fav) and jake's kauai report
ty decided to work on critical thinking.
um, i don't think he's much of a critical thinker.
when ever he does this book it ends up looking like this...
also, i'm finding some good thrift shops here!
we are still here.
we are still living out of suitcases.
i drive by my new house, down the street, everyday.
i'm more than ready.
