Spring is Here


Spring is here and it seems like the sunshine has returned, too. After nearly four weeks of windy, cold, and wet weather our typical tropical paradise has returned. March has been busy though we haven't been to the beach much. Amanda has put on some sewing classes for her "Mommy" friends with great success and Cory completed is portfolio for his National Board for Professional Teaching certification...he just has to wait until next November to see how he scored. There are not many pictures this time but enjoy them nonetheless!

Talk about a dream come true...Amanda got a new sewing machine, which is likely the highlight of the month. We are hoping this machine lasts for some time and it likely will as it has way more features than anything she has used before.
Perhaps the sexiest sewing machine around...the Janome 6600

Mommy made Leif a new McQueen bag and it rocks!

Amanda took Leif to the Valley of the Temples in Kaneohe with her mommies group. They had a great time and Leif especially loved the "big golden man"...aka the Buddha statue.

The lolly made it a great trip to the Valley of the Temples

Leif and Daddy playing ukulele's...neither of us are too good

Not bad for a mouth full of grapes!
We hope you are also having a pleasant Spring and look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon!
