Cameron and Jasmine are here!

Monday, March 31, 2008


Cameron looked so cute crashed on top of all the blankets. So, Randi, the cat you never see can always be seen sleeping on the twins bed each and every night. She is like clockwork. The second they are in bed (and sleeping), the little watchful angel kitty cat is sure to be making her appearance on top of them.

Well, they better rest up as they start a new preschool on Wednesday. This time we'll try part time and hope for the best. Do you think it's possible to get kicked out of preschool twice?

Lots going on

It's been a very busy couple of weeks. We decided to let Franzi go. So we signed them up for preschool, but they got kicked out.....twice. This all happened when Jonathon was in Japan. Luckily Moma could come out and help with the transistion. I think the one downside to having au pairs is that they have never been left alone outside the house. Well, they did not adjust very well. The first time they got booted was because they just were acting out. Crying a lot, throwing crayons, spitting, hitting, etc.... We were very concerned so called the dr. The doctor concluded that they are pretty darn smart. Organizing chaos at the preschool . Nothing psychologically wrong, just two little kids teaming up to raise some hell amongst the preschoolers. How many kids do you know have been kicked out of preschool? I'm just wondering if we're the only one you know . After they got booted out, the teacher thought she'd like the challenge of seeing if she can get them to come around. Well, a week later, she kicked them out again. This time for good. The reason for last week was because they would cry for many hours and were too disruptive in the house. We tried to find out why Jasmine and Cameron were so unhappy, but the only thing we could get out of them was that they did not like the teacher. So, since she asked them to leave and we have nothing else lined up, we will be staying home with them and alternating our work schedule. They are scheduled to start in a pre-school in June, and have been on the waiting list for about two years, but they can't get them in any sooner. So, we'll be working on their school manners in the meantime.

Easter was nice. Jasmine has been dying to wear her easter dress for months and was so happy to finally put it on!

Jonathon's heading back to Japan soon, so we're testing out skype so we can talk on the computer!

Jasmine's potty trained and Cameron's learning fast!

Smoothie time!

Time to take Mr. Hippo for a walk.

We're taking the

Have some fun at..... no, not a movie...

Yes, they serve beer here....But that's not Jasmine's!

Goofing around and music class.

Stomping around in the non stop rain.

Waiting for the popcorn to pop.

Konichiwa Kids!

Good morning Michelle. Good morning Jazzy & Cameron. I miss you all very much!

I'm here in Japan for another week. At least it's wet & rainy, so it feels a little like home. We took a quick stop in Shibuya..

And I found Hachiko! One of these days I'll tell you his sad story..

And look who else I found here!

Ran says she misses you too, but we'll just let her tell you herself.

See you guys soon!

Stuck with me and mortimer today

Sorry Jonathon. All the Kodak moments I didn't have the camera. But Cameron is trying to hard to take pictures with the camera. I could post his foot, a packing peanut, the garage, my leg, the van, jasmine's torso, his finger, etc.. But the best he could do is 1/2 of me. So here I am. And Mortimer thinks he's hot stuff because Jonathon's not here to boot him off the kitchen table! Bad kitty!

Oh Jonathon...

That's what Cameron and Jasmine are calling daddy now. I was hanging up pictures today and they said "that's Jonathon!". Too funny! Anyway, Jonathon needs a picture fix so here's the picture of the day.

Mr. bright eyed and bushy tail.

Jazzy was qutie tired by this time!

End of the Oregon Trail Museum

They had more fun crawling around on the boxes than the museum itself. Anyway, Jonathon's off to Japan for a week so I promised lots of updates.
