First day of preschool

Harrison is officially in the 3s class at Lincoln Park Co-op Preschool. http://www.lincolnparkpreschool.org/ This was taken on Monday (his first day of school). If you look closely I think he's giving a thumbs up. Although he does that for most things these days.

I am on the fundraising committee again this year and Dave is co-treasurer for our class. Currently, we're selling Chinook Books. If you're interested in buying one let me know! They're $20 each and of that money $10 goes directly to our school. The book is similar to an Entertainment Book but also provides you with information and coupons that support living green. For my out of town blog friends - the book is only for Seattle/Puget Sound area. Sorry!

Go Cougs!

Ladder 11 arrival


So you probably think this must be a post about Harrison and his firefighting obsession but it is not. While sitting in the basement tonight we noticed our lights flickering. Dave went upstairs to see if he could figure out what was going on when he heard noises coming from outside. He opened the backdoor to see the transformer (that is running wires right to our house) on fire. He ran back to get me and we ran out into the backyard. Then we kept hearing popping sounds. When we opened our back gate we saw the apartment above the market behind our house on fire. There were flames shooting out of the window.

Henry, Clare, Owen and Harrison. In order to get Owen and Harrison to remove their hands from the faces I said "raise your hands in the air." As you can see from the following photo only one person follows directions... thanks Henry.


For some crazy reason we thought we bypassed the 'why' stage. But then the first week of February it began. And boy has it escalated recently. Case in point: I pointed out to Dave the other night how much more Harrison has been saying why recently. Harrison then said "I wonder why."
