Traveling Can Hurt

It doesn’t take much walking for a 5 1/2 year old to feel the pain of walking so much. We are in Florence and trying to enjoy everything. Well. Most of us.

Trip to Florida

We took advantage of some travel Laura had to do, and crammed ourselves into a hotel room and went to Florida.
Addie must be in a stage of some sort, because at the beginning she kept wandering away from us. We spoke sternly with her a few times, but it didn’t really make an impact. It wasn’t until we were on an elevator did she actually get the lesson.
The door opened and some people walked off and Addie went right along with them.
She turned around in time to see …

Summer’s End – Deathly

Summer’s warmth and life has passed and yet the fact that it is fall has not slowed down life here. There has been an explosion of activity.
Besides getting Addie into her new school and Griffin back at his day-care, we have been busy going to concerts. This summer we saw Ke$ha at the Ohio State Fair, and then we did Brittany, which was not good (but thanks to LJ for getting the tickets anyway), and most recently we all saw Katy Perry in concert, which was very good – …

September

School has started. Addie loves hers. She’s taking cello. Griffin sounds only Okay with his. Here’s a pic from a concert we took the kids to.
That’s about it.

Ke$ha Concert

Wow! We just got back from taking the kids to the Ke$ha concert at the State Fair and it was amazing. What really made the night is that Griffin danced for somewhere between two and four thousand people.

Example of Griffin Dancing

This post includes a video of Griffin dancing. It’s a bit subdued to his more natural dancing because the song is slower, I think. Or perhaps because he is thinking about it too much. Time will tell.
Here is the video I uploaded to youtube.

Back From the Beach

We are back from the beach a few days now and there is at least one thing that I want to be sure to remember. To recap – the beach was great. We went to the Tradewinds on St. Pete’s and really had a great time. Addie and Griffin did some kid care center stuff which they enjoyed and we did a paddle boat. Mostly we were at the pool.
One night Addie opted to go to a space session at the kid care center while Griffin, Laura and I …

Drums, Baby

This morning Griffin wanted to make music. So we went into the basement, plugged in the guitar and he told me the basic guitar line to play. “dja dja dja dja” and I found the notes as best I could. Added some embellishments and he recorded a simple phase over the music. I then went back and quickly put on the drum, bass and second guitar and here is it (see below). I love the way he says, “Drum, baby.”
The picture is of Addie at Fairy Tale Farms where she …
