Today is Chippy’s birthday. We are so happy and grateful that we get to celebrate with her one last time, because tomorrow our dear Tata Chippy moves down to San Francisco. It’ll be by far the hardest thing for all of us. We simply can’t imagine life here without her. We knew it was inevitable, but […]

Milo loves books and we’ve just started reading chapter books. Ben is especially excited about this. He has fond memories of his dad reading him the Narnia series.
