Jason went to the beach today. Isabella, Jude and I stayed home. This is the first day since Jude was born that I haven't had Jason with me,, except for a few hours here or there while he took Isabella swimming and to the new Harry Potter movie. We entertained ourselves with breakfast-style lunches, tea parties and 'princess school'. This is something Isabella has recently invented; It's the education she truly wishes she could have. Some of the classes include: art, etiquette, poise class, tea class, dressage, embroidery, music, acting, letter writing, magic, poetry and tutoring (practicing multiplication facts). The pictures of Bella are during our tea class, which directly followed acting class in which she did a cat dance (-: I gave Jude a much-needed bath and wore him in the Moby wrap so that I could do a load of laundry, some dishes and hang out with Isabella. Jason has returned home now and we are putting together a dinner of fish, wild rice and salad. Yummy.


  1. I get the impression that Bella is far too creative to be enthralled by the 'normal' school system ;-)
