Concerned brother

Yesterday Sarath was sick and he had to stay home from school. Poor kid was throwing up all night and woke up with a mild fever. He was in a bad state. So, he was resting on the sofa in the morning while I was trying to get Sanjay ready for school. As soon as…

Feels Good to be back home

We just got back from a week long vacation to Orlando. We have been planning this trip for a while now and finally, we got good tickets using airline miles. We originally planned on leaving on Saturday and coming back on Saturday. But, the tickets were expensive due to Spring break. So, we left last…

Conversations

Sarath hops out of the bus without his jacket. Me: Where is you jacket? Sarath: In lost and found.. Me: So, why didn’t you take it? Sarath: Because, I was playing soccer and left it outside and forgot about it when I went to class. Me: So, how do you know it is in lost…

Books that we like

Sarath and Sanjay love books. We go to the library regularly to get books and I let them choose the books they want. Then, I choose some books that I want them to read. Everyday before going to bed, we have reading time. I don’t remember how we introduced reading time for Sarath but, by…

Conversations

Moment – Photo 101

I took this picture at the end of summer when we went for a drive around the Olympic Peninsula loop. Watching the kids enjoying the sea and nature together was a rare moment and I am glad to have captured that moment. 🙂

Lazy weekend and Lego display

Last weekend was very warm and sunny and did not feel like October at all. I was feeling really lazy on Saturday. We had lots of left over food and I did not cook anything on Saturday. So, that gave me all the time I needed to do something productive or to catch up on pending…

India Trip 2014 – Flying to Hyderabad

This has been a long overdue post. But, better late than never right…. The flight to Hyderabad was the highlight of this trip and the most tiresome for me. We were supposed to leave Seattle on June 16th – myself, S, Sarath and Sanjay and my SIL’s kids P and K. We were planning everything…
