Bits of Life

January 10, 2021

We're just over here a the end of the world, living our lives.  While I'm still figuring out what the focus of the blog should be from here forward, I thought I'd give you a little snapshot of things at our house.

Sky loves building gingerbread houses.  It's her thing during the holidays and has been since kindergarten.  For that entire time, her brothers' thing has been to slowly pick the candy off bit by bit.  One afternoon, I caught Water slowly wandering back and forth in front of Sky's gingerbread house and decided to try and distract him from sneaking bits.  I kept jumping in front of him and saying, "Nothing to see here!"  and he just stood there and stared at the house.  I'm not usually the funny parent so I was shocked that he was able to keep a straight face the whole time- that kid should be on stage, he's such a good actor!

Fire won the coaches award for his age group!  That means his swim coaches thought he had the best attitude AND the most improvement over the season. He also got first place in his final freestyle race

An Unexpected Meeting

January 2, 2021

 I got a message from a friend on Ebeye shortly before Christmas saying that she'd met someone there who knew us.  It turned out it was Sky's birth father!  We'd lost touch with him years ago, even before we moved to Arizona, and now here he was, finishing up some work on Ebeye before flying home to Lib where he lives now.  We tried several times to meet up with him but it never worked out until the morning he was flying home.  Sky got to spend a short half hour with him before school.  She's still super shy and couldn't think of any questions for him but at least we know how to contact him now so if anything comes up, she will still have access to the answers.
