aloha and apologies for a very long lag in our blogging.  r was taking the bar, a&k were in the mainland, and we have recently moved (although still in paradise).  not to mention a is now 4-5 weeks away from having baby #2.  due date is oct 13, and we plan on naming her kalena (“kah-leh-na”).  we are totally excited and looking forward to all the many changes that will occur this coming year.  a is just trying not to pull muscles, eating constantly and trying to keep k in line.


k is growing up fast, as he regularly reminds us – “I am a big boy, not a baby”.  thankfully, logic now works with him (most of the time).   his favorite past times are singing songs to himself as he plays with his animal figurines, swimming, and hunting for lizards and frogs outside.

r is getting ready for some new adventures with work (more later), boogie boarding weekly (and getting nicely toned from it i might add), and working on his business.

even more exciting is that we are now not alone in having the only grandchild in the a family.  j just had an adorable baby boy that looks just as mixed as our kid, even though he’s only a quarter korean!  we can’t wait to meet him.
