Where oh Where does the time go....

 the last actual entry was Sept of 2011 and for many reasons all legit but none worth listing I took my sabbatical and now I am back and hope to keep up.

When I started this blog in 2006 it was because my children were graduating school and moving to all parts of the world and my motto for this blog was

"Our family is growing and moving on as it should be and even though we will not always be together in the physical sense.... I hope this will be our place to keep everyone together in the emotional sense."

Facebook, Texting and Instagram  have made seeing easier but sometimes the stories are lost.

We are down to only one kid left on the payroll (college). Of my 5 blessings aka "children" we have two in Los Angeles, one in Sonoma, one in Arizona and one in New York.  We have had a wedding and all the pleasure of making things for it. We had an empty nest but now we have my mom aka"Bubbie" living with us.  The storage unit aka"my house" is constantly under transition things coming things leavening and no matter how much leaves I feel like there is no room and no organization.

But what has brought me back to the blog well it would be Purim 2007 Samantha wanted to show her boyfriend that Barry really could dress up... this year will be good also because he is going to be Mordaci  in Shormrei Torah's version of In To the Woods .

So now I will try to remember how to add some pictures.

oh what a beautiful school

We were coming up on the 101 and then we get to W Cotati Ave. and then we are driving on country roads until there it is this beautiful campus. We turned in, found a place to park and started to explore the campus.

One of the most interesting things about Sonoma State is that they don't have dorms they have "reidence villages", and eveyon has their own bathroom that they might share with one room mate but that is it. They also have some suites that are full apartments with kitchens, but what I like best is that all the residence area's are named for different wines... yes there is Sauvignon, Zinfendale, Cabernet and many more. so off we went to explore.

We found the book store, the student union and the commons and then the lake....which is right next to the commencment lawn (it will be so pretty in May of 2015 when Ash graduates) as soon as we sat down we found ducks, some were more interesting thaan others.

We found the rec center, the library and the if you were to ask Ash the most import part of the school the Art Buildings.

Barry and I think it is a beautiful campus and we will have no problem visiting Ashleigh often....
