So, I have been wondering if this blog is meant to cease existing, considering that I have not been writing for a couple of months and my readership (judging from statistics) is still mostly in Latvia, which means they can read what I write in Latvian on “Mans mazais”. But in order to keep in touch with my English reading friends and to pursue some of my doula interests, I will continue to post short updates. For now,  we are back in CA, Oliver is attending preschool (more about it in a second) and Aleksandra is missing him a lot. I am trying to balance this new preschool life with a very vigorous cavity fighting diet for Oliver. We will soon have grass in our bak yard. Life is good.
