It was so nice to spend the summer at home with my two girls, Olivia and Emery. We loved playing at the park, where Olivia excitedly shouts "weeee" as she goes down the slide again and again. My cousin and her daughters visited from Brazil, so we made sure to get together a lot while they were here. Here's a picture of the girls watching Olivia's new favorite movie, Bolt.

Toward the end of July, I ran in the Run or Dye 5k in Pomona. Here's a picture of me and my cousins, who ran it with me. Even the little kids got in on dying each other. It was a lot of fun. We'll be doing the Ugly Sweater Dash in December together, too.

This summer we took the girls to the San Diego Zoo for the first time. It's my favorite zoo and I couldn't wait for them to enjoy it. Olivia's at just the right age to begin understanding that not every animal is a dog. She especially loved the monkeys!

 What a busy and blessed summer I had! I also spent some time learning about new ways to integrate even MORE technology into our classroom. I'm so excited to start creating some really awesome projects with you! 

I hope you also had a fun and relaxing summer. I look forward to getting to know you and hearing about your many summer adventures.
