Allyson’s here, Allyson’s here






We picked up Ally at the airport last night in Portland. We have had a great visit with her so far. Including watching Ella at Gym camp, a walk on the beach, Gilmore Girls, a walk, LOBSTAH, and finishing with some vegging on the couch with our computers in our robes…HAHA. We are not letting her leave. Sorry California, Sorry Mike, She is staying here.

Ella and Natalie



I just sent Ella and her friend Natalie outside to play on the swingset. I can hear their littles voices but not clear enough to hear what they are saying. The two of them are running around and appear very busy with whatever they are doing. My heart is skipping a beat as I think about her developing friendship. It feels different. I like Natalie and I like her and Ella together. I look forward to watching them grow up together.
Ella told me that the other day on the way to dance class together she and Natalie touched tongues and it felt gross. Everyone needs a friend in life that they can touch tongues with. I am happy that Ella has found hers.

Watched a show on PBS…All about The Electric Company

HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!
Moving out in a new way
Moving out in a new way
We’re gonna turn it on (turn it on)
We’re gonna bring you the power (you can do it)
We’re gonna light the dark of night like the brightest day in a whole new way
We’re Gonna Turn it On (do do do)
We’re Gonna Bring you the Power (do do do do)
We’re gonna tell you the truest words that you heard anybody say
Moving out in a new way
Moving out in a new way
We’re gonna turn it on
We’re gonna bring you the power
It’s coming down the lines, strong as they can be through the courtesy of the Electric Company

Spiderman, Spiderman,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spiderman.

Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He’s got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread
Take a look overhead
Hey, there
There goes the Spiderman.

In the chill of night
At the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time.

Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighborhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame
He’s ingnored
Action is his reward.

To him, life is a great big bang up
Whenever there’s a hang up
You’ll find the Spider man.
