Emmet is Seven

Well, having your birthday during a pandemic is not the greatest. But I think we made the best of it – Emmet had a pretty terrific 7th birthday. 

Skiing, presents, a dancing hamster birthday card, a piano lesson, more presents, cake, a movie with his brothers (Alvin and The Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked!), a visit from a friend, and even a toy store shopping spree!

Happy birthday to our own sweet, creative, independent, growing Alvin Emmet!


Asa the chef

We haven’t posted anything for a while, but here’s a quick pic from today. Asa helped me make green beans and cauliflower, cook salmon, and make oatmeal cookies!

That’s really some rock!

Emmet has been reading about musical instruments and is way into electric guitars. He even got to play Yoni’s electric guitar recently. 

Here are two guitars he drew: on the bottom is an electric guitar that can switch between rock and pop music. On the top is the loudest instrument in the world. The very large number indicates how many loudnesses it goes. As the caption says, “that’s really some rock!”

And School Begins!

For now, school is in-person, 5 days/week. It's going to be a strange rollercoaster of a year, no doubt. 


5th grade!

1st grade!

Emmet was so excited to go to school that he - unbeknownst to us - got into his clothes late at night and we found him like this in the morning.
