Here is her “homemade chocolate chip brownie cake” since she doesn’t like regular cake with frosting.

Reading Counts

Well, we’re back home and adjusting to the time zone shift.

The kids all of a sudden have picked up a voracious reading habit.  Here is the three of them hanging out on the sofa in the evening reading.  No coaxing or urging required – just genuine interest.  It warms my heart!

Life Goes On

I spent this afternoon washing down the front yard and driveway and collected a bucket of ashes and muck that has fallen out of the sky.

The kids have been limited to indoor activities because of the poor air quality. So no running, no cross country and no practices. They have been continuing their karate. Nikhil had his Red Belt test and passed it with flying colors.
