April Summer Swimming

It is about 85 degrees today. The built-in pool at Grammy and Grandpa's house will still be too cold for a few months, so we busted out an old baby blow up pool and the slip n' slide.

I was surprised at how much fun they could still have with a tiny pool!

They had tons of fun, until Isabel cut her knee and Dexter made a hole in the baby pool. I guess I will have to get another one and tie Dexter up for the next backyard swimming adventure.

Little Slugger

Adam is playing his first season of t-ball. He played soccer in the Fall and was excited to try another sport. His best friend is on his team, and he loves it.

Go Giants!

I asked him the other day whether he likes soccer or t-ball better. He said, "T-ball, its way cooler."

Easter Egg Hunt

A very nice family in our Ward has started to hold an annual Easter Egg Hunt. They have hundreds of eggs in their yard and I think there were about 30 kids this year.

I don't have much to say, here are some photos of the kids having fun finding eggs and also posing for the camera.

Egg in Front, Chickie in Back

This week Adam and Isabel had their last preschool parade (tear...). They were very excited and practiced their Easter songs at home. Isabel told Grammy she would be wearing an egg in the front and a chickie in the back. They were both very happy to see Mom, Dad, and Grammy and Grandpa watching the parade.

Isabel was Special Helper that day, so she got to be at the front of the line. She loves to be in the spotlight!

Adam gave us lots of smiles!

Last Preschool Parade

After spending four years at First United Methodist Preschool, I was pretty sad to attend our last preschool parade. Adam and Isabel loved being Cute Kittens and were so cute in their homemade costumes. Isabel talked about the "egg in front, chickie in back" for weeks afterward.

We also celebrated Easter with an Easter Egg Hunt at a family in our Ward's house. They hide hundreds of eggs and the kids have a great time every year.

And, the obligatory Easter 2011 picture!

Just Pretend

I met a friend at Pretend City in Irvine to play. Anna was in school, but it was a bit young for her anyway - perfect for Adam and Isabel.

Adam drove the cars around almost the whole time we were there. There were some cooler cars but I didn't get a picture since he was moving too fast!

Isabel's favorite part was getting paid. If they did work such as picking vegetables in the garden, they got paid. The Pretend City employee though she was pretty funny since she always made sure to go and ask her for her money.

De Novo Law Firm - Bankruptcy, Real Estate Law

In case you haven't already heard, I recently launched a new law firm called De Novo Law Firm. De Novo is a Latin term meaning fresh, or anew. Often used in legal situations, I chose the term de novo because it describes perfectly what I try to obtain for my clients -- a fresh start. While bankruptcy is a difficult decision for many, there are several different types of bankruptcy. For many clients, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be the best decision but other clients may not qualify and be forced to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy. For some clients looking to save their home, the best decision may be a loan modification or foreclosure litigation and not bankruptcy at all.

If you or someone you know is struggling with their finances or trying to save their home, please give us a call or visit the De Novo Bankruptcy Firm website..
