Our friends leave for the summer

Naomi, David and Leon came over last night to bid us farewell before their two-month trip abroad. We will miss them but are excited as they head to Israel, Germany and London. Leon walks around his house as of late saying, "Eli, Eli, Eli," prompting Naomi to call for a frequent visits. Leon and Eli inevidably will end up leading one another hand-in-hand, showing one another the fair sites of home, playground, or any ole environment they are currently exploring. Eli has also taken a shine to Naomi and calls out her name throughout the day. Naomi is lucky enough to receive gestures of Eli's love as he falls to his knees and barks or rolls his eyes back in his head with a huge grin on his face. This was first used for his girlfriend Kara when she visited. Eva and David also have a very special relationship. Often Eva will be in Davids arms as he prepares dinner, keeping him deep in conversation as they chop, stir, shake. Bye bye friends for now - see you for a day or so before we leave for the East Coast in August.

Neema and Tim visit!

Our friends from Vancouver Neema + Tim visited last weekend. I was so excited for Eva and Eli to spend time with them. They arrived after the children were in bed on Thursday night. Friday morning, Art managed to keep Eva and Eli in the back of the house from 5:30 am until 7ish. Eva was in the living room on a stealth mission when Neema made a noise from behind the dining room doors. Eva shyly visited them while they were still snug in bed. She ended up crawling up with them to greet the day. We had waffels and soy bacon for breakfast. Other highlights from their visit include, Neema and Tim's renditions of the children's favorite books, lap time and Neema's birthday cake! Eva and Eli had their first Indian pizza from Zante's, which Eva decided was to "sficey" for her liking while Eli just munched away. Friday night, Neema read the books she brought the children while they were in the bath - the adventures of the Mole Sisters are a new hit in our family. Eva was intent on requesting Sophie cat's presence only to be told that she was back in Canada.
