Since we've been home...

The kids wanted a snack last Sunday (May 22). Emma told Cosette she could put the peanut butter in the celery. Notice she has the bowls with 4 celery stalks each in them. What a great helper.
Tuesday, May 24th was a big day for everyone. Gma and Gpa Sewell had driven down from Northern Idaho on Monday and stayed the night. The picked up the boys and took them to California for two weeks. Isaac has been waiting for this trip for months. He knew he was going to Gma and Papi's house after his birthday...at the last minute Ethan was invited so Isaac would have someone to play with. At first Isaac was a little disappointed he wouldn't be going alone, but he'll probably appreciate it once they're in CA. Ethan asks Emma every other day when the family was going to CA so he could swim in Gma and Papi's pool. Now he's having his chance.

The house was instantly quiet and sad as the boys left. The only spark was the display of tulips in the front yard. We do have the best tulips on the block...it's the only thing we can grow apparently.
Isaac -- this picture is for you. Sarah's umbilical cord fell off during her bath. We saved the stump so you can see it when you get home...
