Sharing Stories of Our Ohana
You are currently browsing the archive for the Luca category.
This year Autumn joined Luca in the fall violin recital – her first public performance of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! And although Luca was nervous about J.S. Bach’s Minuet No. 3, he performed it beautifully. So proud of both of these kiddos!
And of course, a celebratory banana split afterwards.
And now for the joint party, which we held at Spring Garden Park. The kids jumped, climbed, and played their hearts out in between bites of lunch, opening presents, and birthday cake and pie. Oh and Spider Man also made a special appearance. Happy birthday Autumn and Mia, we enjoyed this week and a half of celebrating both of you wonderful, amazing kiddos!
This year we had two runners in the annual Montclair Elementary fun run fundraiser. Not an easy task in 85 degree weather!
I snapped a few pics of Luca before joining him for the remainder of his laps.
Enjoying a well-deserved treat afterwards
Then it was Autumn’s turn – all smiles and excitement!
And off she went, first one out of the gateShe kept herself cool by pouring water on her head every time she passed the water station, and of course by enjoying her ice cold popsicle at the end
So proud of you both!
We don’t know how, but somehow our little baby is starting preschool today! After weeks of asking if it was time to go to school, Mia was eager to carry her bag and pose for her first day of school picture.

Finding her cubby
And she had a great first day! Well done Mia Mae! So proud of you!
Autumn started kindergarten today!
And Luca, the old pro, started 3rd grade.
Mia joined in on the love, stay tuned for her big day next week…
Autumn was so brave, she jumped right in and never looked back!
Meanwhile at home, Mia and I made fresh chocolate chip cookies to celebrate the big day.
All smiles getting off the bus. Good job kiddos! Here’s to a great school year!
We found ourselves with some free time this morning so we decided to go on a little hike at Tryon Creek State Natural Area.
