This weekend is Crabfest. The day started with watching Lydia ride in a parade float with her classmates.  We later had a yummy dinner of king crab and fish and chips.  The kids actually tried the fish and liked it!!!!  We even went back and bought them a whole other plate!!!!  A new option for protein!!!!!   The day was topped off with a drive up to see the wind turbines.  Gorgeous day in Kodiak.  Let me say this again - I love living here!

First Hike

The kids and I finally went hiking, an activity that is very popular here in Kodiak.  We did a quick 30 minute trail, which was lovely.  As you can see, The hike got mixed reviews from the kids.  Megan

My Lego Queen

Lydia has become quite the Lego fanatic.  She and John have built several kits together; they are currently working on a superhero kit.  She also likes freestyle building with Legos passed onto her from John's childhood (Thanks Phyllis!).  In this photo Lydia is showing off one of her creations, "Magic Machine," which is being displayed at the library.  Megan

After spending two weeks on my own with these cuties (not hard) John is back from his pilot course!  And I have accepted a summer position returning to Speech Pathology, which will hopefully turn into a full time job this fall with the school district.  For now, my hours will be limited each day, which will hopefully make for a nice transition back.  We have childcare set up to begin mid-June for Jack and Lydia will extend her time at preschool following Memorial Day.  I'm going to miss hanging out with these sweet faces all day long but know that we are ready for this big change, all of us.  Megan

BIG Slide

We have found our favorite park in Kodiak that has a extra-long slide.  Click on the two links to view each kid taking a turn. Megan
PS Lydia still thinks all videos automatically get uploaded to YouTube, hence her "Bye Disney Toys" comment.  That is her favorite YouTube Channel.

T Ball

Now that Lydia is getting close to school-age there are lots of activities available to her!  I'm...oops, I mean "she" so excited!  She began T Ball two weeks ago and is on Team Subway.  She has games and practices about three times a week and so far Lydia loves it.  In last night's game, she played first base and loved all the action first base brought her.  Go Team Subway!  Megan


The Xterra is legitimate now!  I was not sad to say goodbye to my California plates. We love it here!  Megan
