Masters of Arts in Elementary Education

After a semester here and there I finally finished my masters degree.  It was hard to do a thesis on education while I was not working in a classroom, but I found a way around it.  I used the beliefs Town School's all boys curriculum was based on and went about finding if it was researched based.  I learned a great deal of information about teaching boys and feel well prepared for finding the best fit for Ryder when he is school aged.

 Our amazing dinner at The Cliff house in San Francisco.  Beautiful weather and family to celebrate with.  The perfect day!

Mothers Day

As I get older I realize that the typical lotion basket or chocolate box isn't going to cut it for my mom.  I really got creative this time and thought about the things she loves and uses and tried to add to one of those collections.  She has a cute flag holder in her front yard that she changes out for the seasons and holidays.  She has collected quite a few over the years.

But she didn't have a Mothers Day flag!

So I found a great mothers day flag that I could personalize for her to have forever.  It has her 4 grand children's names on it and room to add #5 when Ashley and Brandon have their little girl in July.

Here is Ryder next to her Birthday Flag she put up for Ryder when we were visiting in January, just a few weeks before his first birthday:
