If I had to pick one photo to sum up a 2-and-a-quarter-year-old Clementine Jane Davis, it would be this one:
This week was full of reasons to celebrate… from tooth #2 GONE:
I have to say, it was a pretty great week to be a Davis. Marc and I got to go to some cool SXSW sessions early in the week (and as usual, loved having Elliot visit), but got back to work Wednesday in time for me to play hookie Thursday morning to take the girls on the Amy’s Ice Cream Factory tour!
This week kicked of the giant annual SXSW conference. What started out as a music event is now threatening to take over the entire month of March in Austin. Monday through Thursday of this week, I attended SXSWedu, the education piece of the conference, which was incredibly interesting. I heard from some real superstars (ranging from the 2012 U.S. teacher of the year to Bill Gates, to everyone in between) and got a much better feel for where education needs to head in this country if we’re ever going allow our children to meet their potential. Marc and Diane stood in for me while I spent long hours downtown learning about everything from great tech tools and websites, to awesome innovations that are happening in education around the world.
At five years, two months old, Annabelle is such a nice companion that on occasion, you forget how little she it. Then you realize that the person you’ve been discussing summer plans with can’t tie her shoes and still fits pretty securely on your shoulders.
Two years, two months, and behavior that can best be described as extremely…. two!
