It is good news that you may not require a surgery on your finger. Do allow it to heal though : ) I am happy about the music gigs. We loose interest in things as we grow older. I am sure that the music keeps the kid in you happy. Max has been going to sleep listening to songs lately and it seems to have a calming effect on him and help him "focus"/relax. He has been stashing cars for you and nanny by the door every night before bedtime. He also takes one with him. He calls you on his phone to ask when you are coming back : ) I think we are coming for sure in August, I have booked the vacation time, it is a matter of buying the tickets now. At this point, I will buy them when we come back from Bulgaria at the end of June.
We are ok. Keeping busy. Max and I went to a theater play on Sunday and Max liked it but fell asleep on my shoulders on the way back home. He has been trying to read and write and I started teaching him the Bulgarian alphabet because it is easier in Bulgarian - what you write is what you read. For now, Max just corrects Chris when he has to type "police car", "tow truck", "ambulance", "fire truck" on google for them to look at pictures - he is not allowed to deviate from the words and Max can spell them : )
I have signed Max for more soccer classes. He seem to really enjoy them!
Max is also going to a new daycare, BlackBirdAcademy, more on it - http://oceanhue.blogspot.ca/2015/06/black-bird-academy.html and http://mhthain.weebly.com/so-it-goes (when I wrote it I was super tired and it shows but it is better than nothing. I wish I was more consistent with it and put more effort into it because there are so many cool things to say that you forget in a day or two after...)
Thank you for considering giving the keyboard to Max.
We are looking forward to seeing you in August. (It is strawberry and raspberry season here now. We bought good local strawberries from the market and found a bush with raspberries today that we ate from : ) )
We miss you. Have a great week!
