Last August, my sister (Ellie’s aunty) and my nephew (Ellie’s cousin) came to Oregon to visit us all.
During that time, we fit a lot in. We went to the Chinese Gardens, visited Powell’s, went to the coast, went up Mount Hood, enjoyed a jet boat ride on the Willamette and visited some wineries (naturally). Continue reading “Nicola & Max came to visit”
I know. It’s been a long time. Because moving, life, busyness etc. But I’m here now.
We’ve been up to a lot since we got to Oregon back in March. We absolutely love it here and have done our fair share of exploring, getting out and about, and enjoying the outdoors. Continue reading “The last many months”
With our move to Portland coming up very quickly, we’ve had little time to update the site of late. So, rather than neglect to provide an update, I figured I’d do a quick compilation of the best pictures of Ellie that we have from the past month.
Ellie was born and raised in Florida, so for her, 65F (18C) is cool.
However, in March we’ll be moving permanently to Portland, OR. As such, Ellie is going to need a little adjustment to what the weather is like outside of the tropics. Continue reading “Preparing for Portland”
While packing the car up to go on a trip, I asked Ellie to put her shoes on while I got things in the car, which she’s very capable of doing.
She chose to wear a particularly snug pair of shoes so while I’m in the driveway with the car, I start to hear this dragging noise. Then from behind the car appears Ellie who had managed to get one shoe on, but couldn’t quite manage the other one, so she took the initiative to put one of Mama’s shoes on so that she could walk outside and get help from me. Genius child 😍 Continue reading “Putting her own shoes on”
Tonight, we were telling Ellie about how there’s a presidential election in 2 days. ThE past couple of weeks, we’ve been talking about the two main candidates and who we support. Tonight:
Ellie, who do you think should be president? Hillary or Donald Trump?
Thinking that it might have been because we used his full name and not hers:
Ellie, should Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump be president?
Maybe it’s because she always chooses the second answer…
Ellie, who should be president? Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?
I then proceeded to explain some of the many reasons I don’t think Donald Trump should be president.
Ellie, Donald Trump treats women horribly and thinks that they’re worth less than men. Especially since having a daughter, I can’t support someone who thinks that women aren’t equal to men. Do you think women should be treated equally or that men should be treated better than women?
