Flip and Twist

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

A new week of summer vacation.  As long as the day contains a little structure and a lot of “free time”, it seems to go well so far this summer.  We went to Target in the morning. Evan had some birthday money he wanted to spend. He got a Jurasic World lego set. He is […]

Fathers Day – 2015

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Summer has started and the first 2 weeks of summer vacation have gone by quickly.  This week the kids went to Camp X at Rollings Hills Church and seemed to really enjoy it.  I sort of feel like real summer begins tomorrow, though I have to come up with some plans soon – at this […]

Last Days of Summer

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Last full week of summer vacation.  We went bowling, we went to Johns Incredible Pizza, had friends over to visit with us.  We also continued to get ready for school by doing a little bit of school work each day. Max was mostly exempt from doing any work – mostly because trying to get Evan […]

August 1, 2014

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Friday night at the Bowik house. Busy week. Max had dental work on Monday, and then promptly got sick. He got 3 crowns and a few cavities fixed. Full anesthesia for the 75 minutes worth of work. Very stressful for Dads, but in the end not a huge deal. Needless to say, after 2 kids […]

“What the hells wrung with expressing yourself” – Billy Elliot

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Despite our hopes, our oldest two children are growing up to be terribly predictable.  Evan can’t stand pink, will only eat from blue plates, won’t touch a barbie, etc. Sophie loves pink, hello kitty, barbies, etc.   Our last hope for a child who bucks the trend just a little is our Maxwell.  Perhaps it […]

New rooms…

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

We are in the middle of saying goodbye to our beloved au pair Nicolas. Can’t believe a year is over already! We made the decision  to not have another au pair. Mainly because the house was getting so small and we really wanted Sophie to have her own room. Below are some pictures of changes […]

“Mickey”

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Max is talking up a storm these days! Some of it very comprehensible and clear. The one thing he really hasn’t grasped saying (or doesn’t want to) is “Blanket”. He is the first of the kids to be attached to a blanket, and carries his most of the morning and night. Thank goodness he hasn’t […]

Counting

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Evan counted to “60” today with no help (except he said 50 wrong at first). Max can count to “10” and correctly identify up to 2 objects.  Sophie is counting 10 objects now, and can stop when she runs out of objects. Up until recently she use to continue counting even after she ran out […]

Evan Turns Four

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Evan had his fourth birthday at “pump it up”. He went to two birthday parties there before his, and really wanted his there as well. He had a great time. Almost every kid from his preschool class came, as well as a ton of family and friends. He got so many gifts, and handled himself […]

Height Check

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

In this photo, taken March 19, 2011, all three kids were standing against the refrigerator holding hands. I don’t remember why, but i thought it was a good chance to get them all in a picture and remember how they compare in height. This is during the month that Evan and Sophie are both 3 […]
