It really is all relative isn’t it? And ages of children mean a ton, too! I would find a newborn and a toddler way more challenging than my 3 year old and 7 year old.

A little hideaway from the business of the city. We feel so lucky to live in this house!

And so glad we met!

But I’ll be so glad when things feel more settled. Best of luck, Michelle!

So far, we’ve met a lovely bluebird that hangs around and we’re all in awe of it.

Enjoy your pool time and summer booklist. Sounds dreamy!

We actually have one redwood on our property — a young one, not quite a foot across — but it makes me grin.

It’s been a weird transition, especially the fact that everyone speaks my own language now! We’re still house hunting but it’s a blessing to see family and friends again:) I wish you and your beautiful family happiness and comfort in this transition period of your life! I can’t wait to read of your adventures in the bay area now!

I look forward to your new posts. Our July is now in slow mode. Camps are done for now and we just have some little Friday morning sport ones to keep boyz busy. I’m looking forward to spending time by the pool and finishing my summer booklist! Your new home looks like a treehouse! Modern Swiss Family Robinson style! Enjoy!

I only have 2 little ones and I consider it anything but easy. It’s all relative, isn’t it? I admire that you seemingly keep it all together so well and that you create such meaningful experiences with all of them.

I missed it. :-)
