Other Items:

        PJ dictated a story called "Lion Trap" to his teacher, Martha Melgoza at Skytown Preschool in February 2012. Click here for a pdf. I'm forever grateful to Martha for taking the time to provide this snapshot into his young mind.

        Skytown 2010-2011 Yearbook. PJ loves this book. Sometimes we even read it as our bedtime story. It's taking a beating so I decided to immortalize it by scanning it. Click here for the 6 MB pdf.

        Skytown 2011-2012 Kids. The photographer captured one of the best photos of PJ I've ever seen. Click here for the pdf. Note that I've added all the names for future reference. If I've made spelling errors you should be able to edit the text with Adobe Acrobat.

        Three months between updates is too long! I think a two month schedule is the way to go. 

        3 March 2012. Mei-Mei pooped  in the bath, much to the dismay of PJ. Click here for a photo.

        9 May 2012 - Grandpa's Dream.

Had a dream last night. Here, I wrote down part of it.

The Sprouts are laughing and running. This is the happiest time I've had asleep in some time. PJ and Mei-Mei are cavorting in costume; PJ in his little suit and Mei in her full-body pink muumuu. They dress and then run for the stairs, giggling. I watch, delighted, cheer them on. Upstairs is a party of some sort and they are having a wonderful time.

PJ approaches me, straight to my front, very somber now. He has his serious face on.

"Grandpa, you're not funny."

He thinks I need to know this, to avoid unnecessary effort or avoid embarrassment. I think, he's graduated beyond my humor range. I take him at his word.

He goes back up the stairs, chortling. I cheer him.

 

22 April 2012. PJ and I went to the Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands and then walked from Rodeo Beach to Battery Townsley for a tour of the bunker. The guns were able to shoot this 2,100-pound, 16-inch-diameter projectile 25 miles out to sea.

 

14 May 2012. While PJ didn't start preschool until he was 3, Mei-Mei started on the toddler side at 18 months. She goes three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm, just like her brother. Today she slept in the middle of all of the commotion from 11 am to 1 pm.

17 May 2012. Mei-Mei fell asleep on the ride home from the library. I was quite chuffed to have been able to transfer her to her crib without waking her up. Click here for a higher resolution version of this photo.

 

17 May 2012. Brother and sister watching TV, probably Yo Gabba Gabba. Click here for a higher resolution version of this photo.

 

19 May 2012. Grandpa, PJ and Isabella.

 

28 May 2012. Gong-Gong, PJ and Lau-Lau waiting for a table outside of the Sunnyside Restaurant. Click here for a higher resolution version of this photo.

 

29 May 2012. Tuesday morning Mei-Mei was not feeling well so she climbed up on the couch and I covered her with one of her favorite blankets. Click here for a higher resolution version of this photo.

 

29 May 2012. Then I had to take a picture because she was so sweet and stoic. Click here for a higher resolution version of this photo.

 

29 May 2012. Then she gave me a Mona Lisa smile. Never have I captured such a sublime moment. Click here for a higher resolution version.
