Scott played in the Bei League Championship game today. And he won!!  It was pretty tight for most of the game, but in the end they walked away with it, 21 – 10. Blake and I braved the crisp autumn weather to cheer him on.  It was cold, but it was fun! Team shot – … Continue reading »

Tonight I accidentally filled it much fuller than we are used to.  This made Blake laugh a lot and do funny walking along the bottom of the tub.  He also would lean down a little bit and blow bubbles right into the water instead of … Continue reading »

Hong Kong with the Buxtons!!!

I heart Hong Kong. Scott took the Varsity girls rugby team to a tournament, Blake and I decided to tag along and I’m so glad we did!! HK is warmer, cleaner and less spitty and smoky than Shanghai.  Also, I was there for three whole days and didn’t see one person litter or go to … Continue reading »

Hide and Go Seek

A favorite game around the Hossack house is Hide and Seek.  It’s become a lot more interesting lately because Blake does some hiding now, before he was all about the finding. He hasn’t found any really great hiding spots yet. This is his favorite: When it’s his turn to hide, he runs over to the … Continue reading »
