Call of the Wild

Liam and I are reading an abridged version of this great classic.  It’s fun to see him excited to read a chapter each night.  (Good motivation for getting the bedtime routine done too.)  Gripping story and we are learning a lot about the multi-faceted principle of hard work!  Last night poor Dave showed us what he’s made of as he insisted on helping his team though his days were numbered.

And I have to mention our vocabulary is growing.  Great lessons all around for real life

Drew and Alicia's Fia Fia

We had a wonderful evening on Tuesday with our family and Alicia's family as we celebrating the upcoming wedding together.  Mom (Dixie) had some of the food catered and also did all the decorations.  I especially love the pineapple palm tree she put together with a little help from Ian's welding skills as he made a stainless steel stand that is under all that fruit.  Alicia made each family member a lava lava skirt and gave us each a lai of some sort.  I really liked Drew's seed necklaces!

All the kids on both sides of the family got along so well as they ran around, jumped on the trampoline, and also enjoyed a Samoan dancer show us his skills.

The whole evening was so great!
