So Dio turned five. Five! He requested another Angry Birds cake, like last year's (at the end of the post).
Ivy turned 13 months. She has another tooth (#6), a few more words and signs, and is still completely crazy about dogs, cats, and birds. Especially dogs. She's started babbling in what sounds like sentences, usually ending with "dog" or "doggie."
Eating farm-fresh eggs...look at the color of those yolks!
There's something terribly adorable about matching shirts...
During Eric's house-hunting and Sabbatical research trip to France in early March, he found an apartment in old Nice. Fantastic location, good price, lots of potential, and small (officially 700 sq ft but with an extra attic bedroom not counted in the square footage) but still enough room for our family and for guests. Our offer was accepted quickly, and we thought everything was good to go...but the second owner STILL hasn't signed the purchase agreement. It's been almost 2 months.
We're starting to get really stressed because we can't apply for visas or enroll our children in school until we have housing finalized. And, if we don't get a signature soon, we won't have time to get a mortgage (it's a very long process in France, usually about 3 months). So yeah, we have plane tickets for August 1st but possibly nowhere to live.
So let's ignore our possible homelessness in France and admire my children!
