Malia had to do a timeline highlighting one or two significant things that happened to her each year of her life for her social studies class. Some years we drew a total blank but on further reflection, we realized most of our time was probably spent recovering from a child's birth, enduring sleepless nights, teaching kids how to eat, walk, talk etc. All good stuff but kind of weird to put on a timeline for school. Speaking of which Ollie is officially walking. We spend a lot of time walking behind him wiping up drool and keeping him from poking his eyes out with the pens he insists on carrying.

We do sometimes do other stuff. Here's a few recents:
We spent the last few weeks indoctrinating the girls about all things Star Wars. All leading up to the Oakland A's Game followed by Star Wars fireworks. There was way too much junk food consumed and waiting in line (food, fireworks viewing and public transportation) became the running theme. But the A's won the game and the fireworks were amazing.

The other amazing event we found ourselves at this summer was the America's Cup World Series Racing in San Francisco Bay. If you have the chance to see these boats race in person, you won't regret it. If you can't swing that at least watch it on tv. For all you drama junkies, sometimes they even crash, capsize or someone falls off a boat!
