Here we are in 2020 with a set of 8 year olds. What a crazy year it's been with Covid monopolizing the headlines and life. We've done a pretty good job isolating them and had another amazing year although you will notice a lower number of European vacation shots.... ok, none actually.
With school in normal mode, we decided to try a Thanksgiving-week cruise instead of making the turkey ourselves. The kids love the cruising environment -- especially getting away from Mom and Dad in the kids club. Once again, Zella had an inch on Zander and got to try things he wasn't tall enough for like the flow-rider.... which she did GREAT at. We also rode the worlds tallest water slide. What crazy dare devils they are and also learned how to roll sushi and climb a rock wall. It was a great trip and maybe the last cruise for quite a while.
You'll notice a lot of outdoor pics. Julija has transformed our household into an active, outdoor, eating well, exercising family. Thank you for that.
I know there have been more pictures than words this year, but what a great way to see the growth. They came out tiny but now operate at the top of the graph in all aspects. Mom is home schooling them, keeping them close and safe but also pushing them as no one ever has.
