Papa and His Peas in a Pod

Yesterday after work, I took a quick trek over to check in on 100 year-old grandfather.

How grateful I am for his mental acuity, and for the gift of his presence in our twins' lives.

From the looks of his shirt---and smile---he's pretty happy about it, too.

Ballet Slippers to Backpacks

After a glorious, gorgeous week of dance recitals, this morning, She-Twin headed out for a week on the Chesapeake Bay.

Her entire freshman class has a "mini-mester" experience; no electronics, no showers, no cabins, just roughing it together as a group...a group destined to become a team.

Maybe it's not all that unlike dance after all.

This weekend, she looked like this...

This morning, she looked like this...

Beautiful both ways, if you ask me.

Way Back When-esday - Honor Amongst Twins

Dateline: Fourth Grade
Twins' Age: 10

Happy memories of our twosome's induction into the National Elementary Honor Society. Until they were quite literally "tapped" by an elder member while sitting in the assembly, they had no idea if they'd "made the grade."

Their quiet, well-deserved pride (and She-Twin's clearly demonstrated aversion to touching certain types of paper) warms my heart this mid-week. 

Did you realize Twinfatuation was the originating host of Way Back When-esday?

We've been looking back with love since 2007... so please join in, play along!

Dive into those digital files and share a photo find on your blog and/or on our the new Twinfatuation Facebook Community Page...and encourage fellow moms to do the same!
