preschool 2013

first day of early preschool 2013

This happened yesterday. She’s been going two days a week since she was 16 months old. However, yesterday she moved up into what we had been calling the four year old class [which it's not, oops!]. She is very excited. Ah, this is all happening so quickly!

weekend recap // no.9


This weekend, we decided to take Em bowling for the first time! It was a lot of fun. But my has it changed since we were kids. I remember having inflatable bumpers. And if one person on your team needed bumpers, everyone got bumpers. Now, they automatically raise and lower so that only the person that wants them gets them. And how about that ramp? Makes it much easier for a three year old to bowl!

As you can see, we’ve been quite busy sketching + letterpress printing beautiful homes! Here’s the latest one we’ve completed for custom moving announcements. Congratulations A + C on your lovely new home!

Oh, and PS – we’ve added our popular 5″ x 7″ custom house illustrations to our Etsy shop. You can find them here. And bonus! If you purchase a 5″ x 7″ print along with moving announcements, the house sketch fee is waved for the print. Contact us for details.

Sorry for the blog silence. We’ve been so busy! First, we spent three weeks visiting family. Two weeks at the lake house and one in Louisiana. Then, we wrapped up a lovely custom wedding suite order. I can’t wait to share it with you!

This happened recently. Em’s first sail with her sail-loving-daddy. The wind died down as they were coming in but Em loved it all so, so much!

Hope you have a happy weekend!

fourth of july 2013

July 4, 2013

How was your Fourth of July? Ours was great! We spent the weekend at the lake house with lots of friends + family. There was sailing, kayaking, swimming, lounging, great talks, lots of music and late night games. So much fun! Oh, and Em played her first game of Cooties, which she loved.
