Every year, a flyer has come home saying, "Join the Orchestra!" Every year, the kids have shown no interest. This year, however, Maddie said, "Mom! I want to play the clarinet!" She had heard it in an assembly, and described it as "so graceful." And so we begin our journey into the world of band.

The fam rarely gets to the beach, but thankfully there is Cousin Spencer, who calls and manages to get us over the hill.
Which is great, particularly because the kids love it. About 4 hours was spent in the water, mostly boogie-boarding.
Along with some frisbee playing.
Hole-in-the-sand digging by this awesome octopus (made by a previous beach goer).
Cousins - Spencer and Sam.

Big cat, i.e. Oscar, has not been happy about little cat, i.e. The Countess Emmeline, joining our family. There has been a lot of growling, hissing and the occasional swipe. Improvements to the hostile environment have been made thru a doling out of treats - closer and closer together, day after day.
