Christopher's new teacher

Christopher was beaming from ear to ear because this morning he started the first day of fifth grade with the teacher that I had requested. Our plea was granted Friday afternoon and we're happy! Mrs. Terry is his new teacher, and she is also our neighbor and lives down the street from us.
Christopher has about five of his friends in this class too. He's going to have an awesome year with Mrs. Terry. She's really nice and treats others respectfully. Since he missed the first four days of school, he was extra eager to be there today. One of his buddies in his class has been on vacation and is starting the same time, so they'll be getting caught up together.

Congratulations! Yea for Christopher having a teacher he'll enjoy, thus making it easier to excel, and more enjoyable to get up each day. Way to fight for the right Kelly!

PS I'm not ignoring you..I just got your message off my phone. I'm not using that number anymore. Thank you for sharing the message. I was so surprised to hear the news. Very sad. Thank you for your comments on my blog, I've fallen off the commenting band wagon lately. I should pick it back up again soon. We had our first day of school today. Back to the routine, and good-bye to the fun chaos we called summer-time.

What a relief to get that situation sorted out and to have another kid doing the same catching up as Christopher! I wish him a productive and happy school year with Mrs. Terry.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
