So, after a couple of long months being unemployed, I finally landed. It's a well established company that has been around since the 50s. Here's a hint. It has something to do with cows. Yes, I said cows. Also banking. But not banking far as I know. I also am busy in the evenings doing contract work for one of my old company's clients that was left unhappy with the previous contractors.

Ira is as busy as ever and finally decided that home schooling was more work than she wanted to deal with, which interestingly enough coincided with me going back to work and the end of her vacation from it all. It's about time.

Misha is talking up a storm. He is learning to speak sentences instead of phrases and at school they are working on him saying things in 1st person, not 3rd person.

Boba has finally stopped getting up before 6:30, but that doesn't matter cause I get up before then anyway. While I was on a call the other day, Boba babysat Misha cause Ira had to run the kids and baba around.

Other than that life is calm. Very, very calm. And that is good.

Ira finally gave up on homeschooling? Wow! Kudos to her. I'm glad. She will finally find some quiet time around the house. Good for her.

What's this with boba bbsitting misha? I was a little confused.

Ira had to take Baba Liza to class, someone to ballet and others were at friend's house, so while I was on a call with a client downstairs, she told Nikolai to watch Misha.

With my time off looking for work, he has actually picked up on my Im-on-the-phone-go-away wave.

I am amazed y'all lasted as long as you did with home schooling. I thought about it when you were young and decided I just wasn't cut out for it. "Watching Misha Grow" is one of my favorite activities. You have amazingly sweet kids. And very funny about Boba babysitting Misha!
