Field day, Father's Day

Dear Maya and Emi,

What a roller coaster the last couple weeks have been, and one with more dips than seems logical. What started out with a 'quick 24-hour bug' for each of you kids ended up being a sick-again, well-again fiasco for the whole family! Mommy and the two of you still have a lingering cough but thanks to doctor visits and modern medicine, we're much better than we were just a few days ago. Daddy has just gotten started compared to us, but hopefully he'll be better soon, too.

Luckily all of our non-sick days synced up for your school field day, Maya. (That's not exactly true--mommy had crazy pollen allergies that day.) You had such a fun time doing silly races and playing with the parachute with your friends and teachers. It was so much fun to watch!

Look at that braid go!

Maya's face when she saw us coming over to see her--priceless!

Today was Father's Day and, like I said, your father wasn't feeling so well at all. We still celebrated him the best we could with a banner, some sweet gifts, and lots of warm snuggles. Emi, you repeated after your sister first thing this morning and wished him a "Happy Father's Day!" before even getting out of bed! Maya, you slowly read a booklet from school to him--and it was 16 pages long! You two are growing and changing so much lately it's not even funny.

Well, mommy still needs rest so it's time to go. Love you both!
