The kids have always loved cooking, but Ellie has found a heightened passion for the culinary arts since Nana helped her sew a new apron. They are quite amazing with their cooking skills
This hair cut is a small example of what is going on around the house without the red tape of Mimi's veto powers. Jensen loves it and seems to be able to run faster due to the increase in the aerodynamics of his head, which greatly reduces wind drag.
Jensen and Ellie have become very able on the computer lately with a website that teaches reading. I came home from work one day and walked into Ellie's room and was surprised to see her sitting on her bed with the laptop on her lap. I watched as she dragged her finger across the mouse pad and then gave it a little tap to select a letter. Fun to see them learning so much. I remember we had "Oregon trail" that I did in the 4th grade on the apple computers. I loved to hunt for the buffalo.
