Our neighbors raised some butterflies from caterpillars and then let them go the other day. They invited our kids to come and watch. I thought the butterflies would just fly away as soon as the lid was lifted but they were so tame that the kids were able to hold them. They were amazing!

My smart husband

I just wanted to tell Todd's big news. He was just awarded a fellowship from The Bancroft Library at UC Berkley. For those of you non-scholar types (like me), a fellowship is like a scholarship but they just give you the money and let you spend it on your research, however you choose. It's a very prestigious award. I'm so proud of him. He is so dedicated. This does mean we may be moving back to San Diego come this Fall so he can focus on finishing his dissertation and receive his Ph D. I'll keep you all updated on our plans!

The Big Ski Day

My mom, Hayley and I took the kids up to Sundance for a fun filled ski day. I, of course, stayed at the bottom with Fisher and Millie. I can barely walk without falling, let alone ski. We all had a great time. The kids did great! The first time I watched Lucy come racing down the hill I freaked out. I started screaming because I thought for sure she was going to crash but I guess she must have got her mom and dad's natural ability because she did just fine.
