Family portraits that made us famous

Was it the funny eyes? My frizzy hair? Or the cute moments captured of our girls?

I want to direct you to a fabulous photographer in the East Bay part of the Bay Area. It's a husband and wife team, Julie and Luke, and Julie is just wonderful!

Check out how she made our little family a little famous on her cute blog, by clicking over to Julie and Luke Photography.

First day of joyschool

So we have decided to save the money we don't really have for preschool and teach the girls at home. I know that preschool is important for structure, socialization, and to get ready for school. But I think our set up will do just great! The girls did attend a home day care/preschool so I feel they learned so much there in regards to playing, sharing and songs I don't even know.

I'm excited! And so are the girls. As of today they love calling me "teacher."

I printed out work sheets that look a lot like the ones our preschool/day care used and will start with the alphabet. We are apart of a great playgroup that meets weekly.

And to give myself more confidence, I did get a special certification in early childhood education. So I got this. If I'm going to be home, I must make the most of these precious toddler and preschool moments. And those will be teaching my girls.
