Our Japanese Princess

Ok I had to post these pictures! Last Saturday, Jeff's mom took McKayla to get formal pictures taken in a kimono. It is tradition at seven years old that they have pictures taken in ceremonial dress. These are just the proofs that Jeff's dad sent me but they are so darn cute!!!

Grad school?

So we are back from vacay and really enjoying our time alone without the kids. I miss them terribly but it has been a very long time since Jeff and I were able to spend this much quality time together. I think we need to do this every year!

A short note today and then maybe some pictures of the vacay early next week. I have a good friend - who I cannot thank enough for opening my eyes to new philanthropic experiences by the way - who is away at grad school right now. It is a program that I would be extremely interested in pursuing but it is very intimidating.

I have studied for five years now, some days were harder than others but I got through it all. I will graduate - finally! - December 18th and couldn't be more thrilled. So, the question that lies ahead is do I dare grad school? I suppose it depends on what I want to be when I grow up. I still don't know. The program is intense but tailored just for us fundraisers and the group is really small - 25 students per year accepted.

Hmmmm, a mind bending pondering thing this is.....we will see
