School Opens 2007

I can't believe Summer is over and a new School Year
awaits Justin and Trevor. It seems like
they were just getting warmed up for vacation during
the warm Summer months.

This year, we’ve moved Justin and Trevor from
Riverside School District to Poway School District.

They’re both excited of the school change. We've just finished buying all their
items for their required School Supply list shown below and
I can feel the excitement and anticipation in their behavior.

Walking Trevor first day of school to Rolling Hills elementary School

Is it because they have all new school belongings from new backpacks
to clothes or a new school district? I still have to figure that out.

I myself feel the excitement too because Justin and Trevor have returned back to San Diego.

An afternoon at the pool

Justin, Trevor, and Kristen spent the afternoon
by playing at the pool to welcome Jed and Keanu back
to San Diego, and play with Jaela and Ricki as well.

Seems like Summer has laready passed as school
has started which signals the coming of Autumn.

An afternoon outside with a nice sunshine is
a late Summer treat.

Welcome back Jed and Keanu.

beginning body boarding

beginning body boarding

-blog entry by Justin

According to Wikipedia,

Boogie Board (n): A slang term used to refer to a small roughly rectangular piece of foam, shaped to a hydrodynamic form. This is used in bodyboarding.

The bodyboard is ridden in a similar way to the more well known surfboard, but is predominantly ridden lying down, (or 'prone').


I went out to Beach today to try my hand on Boogie boarding.

Man! that was a lot of fun. The surf at the Beach has not been as big lately.
I'm still learning how to do it. Riding a wave can take you as far as 50 feet
maybe further as I get good at it.

I can't wander out to the deeper water yet but it was a lot of fun just the same.
Check out some of our pictures.
