chloe: the bigness of big


:later summer update:

this is more like the once every 2 months update.

summer has been busy. we keep thinking that life will slow down, but alas, it continues to speed up!

we went to washington a couple weeks ago, to celebrate my 29th birthday and enjoy a mariner's game on WSU alumni night. fun times, great weather.

we also had the pleasure of checking out sauvie island in portland, which is one of my new favorite spots!

last weekend we went to vegas for a sort of last minute adventure to the desert. really, there wasn't anything adventurous about it, but we had a lot of laughs and pool time. chloe finally let go and plunged in! it's been a process over this summer of getting her used to the water. at the beginning, she would barely get in the water. now she dives in with reckless abandon. so proud!

this past week, chloe started preschool. she is going to a public school nearby, and involved in what we call "State" preschool. basically, it's free because we don't make a lot of money. it's the answer to a lot of prayers. daycare is too expensive (as much as we love them!), and chloe really needs the daily social interaction that she thrives off of. we put her on the waiting list earlier this summer, expecting it would be another year before she was accepted. when i got the letter that she got it, i was so thrilled! today will be her 4th day as a preschooler, and she's not even 3! she will be 3 on tuesday, the 15th!
of course, she loves it, and comes out with the biggest smile everyday. she talks all about her friends, and how they love her. so precious.

last day of of school to come soon...

for her birthday, jared REALLY wants to take her to chuck-e-cheese, so on monday night, the locals are going to meet up for some pizza and robotic rats dancing. sort of like a rite of passage as an american toddler. for her birthday, everyone pitched in to get her tumbling classes at this place called JW Tumblers. it looks like chloe heaven. she starts on the 19th.

so, that brings us up to speed. we're going to big bear the end of this month for some family time with my parents, sisters, grandmas, etc. should be fun! and next month i begin my year long training for yoga therapy. i will be gone for about 10 days in L.A., half of which i have to do without chloe. i'm pretty nervous about that, but it's for the best.

we love you all!
