Today I am happy. It is my Dad’s birthday. My Mom was in the hospital and is released today to go home. Together they can celebrate. This picture was taken last month during our visit.
My little family here in Oakland is warm and well fed and glad to be together. We just found out that we are all set to start growing at the toddler garden. We have lots of seeds and enthusiastic to get our hands dirty.
Emma has been collecting lovely wooden toys for each Little Bear character. When she receives a new one she introduces them to the others. It is sweet.
It is a bright day in my heart even if outside it is cloudy. Emma and I still find all the magnolias and sakura blooming and the cute little gnomes on the electrical poles. Little signs of growth and happiness. ^_^
