House Update

The house is coming along and we are all getting really excited to move in and resume our lives in Westchester.  It's amazing how being 5 minutes down the hill can change everything.  Here are some updated pictures!  We've had a great experience so far so hopefully the last couple months will be just as smooth.

The girls bathroom is a shade darker than their room as you can see below

Goodbye 3rd, 1st and JK!

The last day of school was a little hectic because we had a flight to Salt Lake City at 3:20pm and Jeremy and Amelia got out at 12:45 and we got Mabel early to head to airport.  I got a picture of Mabel on her way in the last morning of school due to daddy's request.  Ryan drove Mabel most of the time and he loved watching her walk in and blow him a kiss.  He tried to convince her every day to let him drop her off in valet line but she was not having it.  I think he secretly liked walking her in every day.  All 3 will be at the same school so unless mommy is in the hospital, there will be no need for daddy to drive.  Uh oh....we may have a sad dad on our hands.

Sent to her daddy for the last time....

Amelia and Ms. Hetu

Jeremy and Mr. Bartels

A job well done to all three of you!  Your teachers had such great things to say about each of you and you all made daddy and mommy proud.  On to 4th, 2nd and Kinder!!!!

UCLA update; 1 year down, 1 to go!

I finished another quarter and really enjoyed my clinical rotation on the oncology unit and I learned a lot!!!!!  There were some heavy moments but overall, so rewarding.  I have to say that even though the classes weren't as difficult as previous quarters (except pharmacology); managing the remodel with lots of meetings, finalizing tile choices, etc and Jeremy's busy busy baseball season, there were moments I thought it would be a miracle if I passed all my classes.  Well, I haven't gotten all my grades back yet but I think I am in the clear!  Phew!  So far I have a 3.6 GPA which I will take ALL day every day!  It was an absolutely crazy 10 weeks.  My summer schedule is supposed to be a little more mellow with a Tues/Wed rotation for 5 weeks in a general hospital floor and then 5 weeks in a psych ward.  I will post back when it's all over.  Here is a picture of my clinical crew at Santa Monica Hospital and my friends after our last final!

Amelia's 7th Birthday Festivities

As a Meinhardt tradition, we try to snap a "1st thing in the morning" picture!  Sleepy heads, messy hair and sibling love!  They love to celebrate with each other and wait anxiously as they open presents and they can't wait to share their gifts with each other.  

Daddy went to school with fruit kabobs like Jbird and read a book to Amelia's class.  Actually, she wanted to read it so she read most of it.  She chose Tower Pizza for dinner so we made cupcakes and joined the Margallos and Taylors for a fun dinner.  Thank you all for joining to celebrate our big girl!

We combined Amelia and Isabella's birthday party because they are the cutest little friends and their birthdays are 2 days apart.  It was a blast!

Hope you had a great day pretty girl.  We love you and we love watching you play with your friends and enjoy your special day!
