Back to School

This is our first year with both kids in school! Jane has started preschool and Charlie is in second grade.

His mouth has been keeping the tooth fairy busy and I love his smile. He is liking his teacher so far.

Some old and new faces at the bus stop. Charlie and his friend Roman are in the same class this year again and they both are super happy about that. 

 Jane goes to pre-school for three hours in the afternoon Monday-Thursday. She also loves her teacher.
 After meet-the-teacher night, Jane came home and drew hearts all over both sides of this piece of paper. On the first day of school she took it with her to give to her teacher.

As for me, I'm planning on spending more quality time with Marvin (my cello) now that I have time to myself. :)

Mexico part 6: Domingo y Martes

Sunday morning we said farewell to the lovely hacienda and drove further into the mountains for a brunch at the home of Sandra's father.

His house is nestled on a hillside surrounded by beautiful scenery and terraced gardens.

White-eared Hummingbird. This and Blue-throated hummingbirds were all over the big purple flowers that covered most of the hillside.

Close friends and family came for the yummy brunch. It was neat to talk (or attempt to talk) with so many of Sandra's family. They are all very warm and welcoming.

It was all so enjoyable that I hated the thought of going back to the city. It was a gorgeous day in a gorgeous place with delicious food and wonderful people. 

Our flights back home were the next day and we had a 5 hour drive to get to the city, so unfortunately we had to go. Thanks Shawn and Sandra for such a wonderful trip. You guys make a great couple.
