Weekday Afternoons with Sara
Since last November, Sara F. has helped with watching the kids and being on call in case Zoya has a doula client who goes into labor. On many weekday afternoons, Sara watches the kids for a few hours until Zoya and I get back from work/skiing. Sometimes Sara takes pictures of their daily activities and I love seeing what they have been up to. It's sort of like a secret look at how they're doing when Zoya and I aren't around. Here are a few such pictures.
In the top 2 pictures Sara took pictures of the kids with their homemade valentines. Then they took the camera to Walmart and had prints made of the pictures and they used the prints to complete their Valentine's Day cards for 'Mommy' and 'Daddy' (Zoya and I each got one).
In the 3rd photo the kids are at the NMF's aquarium out on Near Island. They got to check out the touch tank and then examine the crabs and fish in the big tank. I always love Kodiak's aquarium because it is filled with only local species that the NMF and NOAA scientists catch while doing their jobs. The kids obviously love the results too.
And finally in the bottom photo the kids make Green Bay Packer cupcakes for the Superbowl. I gather that Sara and her family are Green Bay Packer fans. We don't watch the big game at our house (no TV), but the kids were interested in the results. They had me check the internet periodically to follow the score of the game. And they were rooting for the 'Packers'. Patrick
