Surfing with my kids has been a dream come true. The past week in Costa Rica has had pumping waves, and for the most part my kids are hanging on the beach with our awesome nanny while mama gets some turns in. Towards the end of the swell there were some super smooth easy peelers coming in at the bottom of the point. I asked Soleo if he wanted to catch a wave and he shook his head no, until Luna agreed. She’s 3.5 and got excited. After 18 month old Soleo watched his sister ride a wave, he was eager to get one too.
With two little ones it has been a struggle to get both down to the beach at times. We live a short walk away, but a short walk for us is still a long one for little legs. My husband Kim bought a wagon frame and wheels in the states, brought it down and added a wooden seat. Now walks to the beach are so much easier. The kids think it’s really fun to ride!
Luna is starting to get into riding a surfboard in very tiny waves and Soleo just loves running around in the sand and pointing at birds.
Ok, I get it. I never thought I would, but now I do.

After saying goodbye to family in Oregon, we packed up and headed just a bit further South, just over the border into Northern California. Last Christmas we purchased a lot near Crescent City and were eager to see it in the summer. Continue reading Giggling in the Trees of Northern California
We spent a couple of weeks in Oregon between Bend and Portland exploring with the Obermeyer clan. I didn’t capture quite as much with the camera but here are a few fun video moments mostly through the eyes of Luna. Continue reading Adventuring with Family in Bend and Portland

Ok ok, I know that making play-doh is not a huge deal as far as homeschool crafts go, but it was the first one that I have attempted and it came out amazingly well, so i’m proud of myself and inspired to try our next project! Continue reading I Made Play-Doh!
