Max's Sixth Birthday

My baby boy turned 6 today and invited his entire Kindergarten class to celebrate with him at Bouncin' Off the Walls.  They bounced, played ball, slid on the giant blow up slides and had an all around super - star celebration.  We adore this little man and can't believe we've been lucky enough to have him with us for these six short years.

Herbed Sea Salt

Have I ever mentioned how much I adore the blog Sunday Suppers? It documents a cooking class held in Brooklyn with the most gorgeous pictures of delicious food, impeccable styling, and thoughtful favors. One of my favorite take-homes was a customized sea salt which I decided to replicate for a few of my friends.  It's so easy.  Just a nice quality sea salt, your favorite fresh herbs or spices, and a cute container to give it in.  I've used my roasted garlic and herb sea salt on roasts and loins. So yummy!

Dancing Queen

While dancing over six hours a week (not including weekend competitions) we have deemed our Kalli girl "dancing queen" - at least of our household.  Her dance company did their first round of competitions this spring and never came home with less than a third place - and she's got a shelf full of trophies to prove it!  I'm constantly impressed with her dedication and passion for all things related to DANCE!

Junior Jazzer

Max wrapped up his first season of Jr. Jazz with a bang...he loved every minute of every game.  This boy and his sports have added a whole new dimension to our lives - as we have been doing dance and choir route with the girls.  He's learning to put that long and lean body to work and is sure he'll be dunking by at least the 3rd grade! Knowing his genetic possibilities, he might not be too far off!

The Walk Home

I snapped this picture from inside my living room window of my 3 elementary kiddos walking home from school.  (I already wrote about my obsession watching them walk to school here.)  I don't know what my fascination is with this watching - except that its about as close to "a fly on the wall" as I ever get.  I'm really quite smitten with how good they are to each other.  While other school mates have found a friend to walk home with, they generally have found each other - and Ella almost always has her arm around Max (like above) or she's holding his latest art project or his backpack for him.  Now I won't be entirely gushy and paint an unrealistic picture - there have been times that I see Kal and El literally shove each other around the minute they walk out the door. (And you can believe I've stepped outside and had a word or two to say:)  That being said, these three are beyond siblings...they're pals.  And I love it that way.
