We Have A Kindergartner!

Carter officially started Kindergarten near the end of August, and if these first few weeks are any indication, this is going to be a great year. He’s been excited to ride the bus every day and loves sharing his schoolwork when he gets home. Allison and I are looking forward to all the new experiences…

Make Mini Apples Great Again!

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 10 months since I last posted an update to the Yem Family blog. Increasingly busy schedules and chasing two active and healthy boys, always made for good excuses to put it off for another week. I also found that, three and a half years into a project that…

The end of July marked another big milestone for Henry, as his time being a part of Betty’s Bunch came to an end. Vish and I both feel like we have basically hit the jackpot with our childcare experience. Having both kids start off at Betty’s provided them both with the best start they needed…

Visit to the Sunshine State

With my sister Bophar living in Florida for quite some time now, and having yet to visit her, we were long overdue. The changing of seasons, and Fall weather setting in, gave us the perfect opportunity for a nice vacation to the beach. Being Henry’s first time on an airplane, Allison and I were both…

Heading North: Weekend In Duluth

Ever since our last trip to Arizona, Carter had been asking when we could go on vacation again. Given that was over a year ago, and with summer fading fast, we heeded to his requests and planned a long weekend in Duluth, Minnesota. We had never been to Duluth before, but had heard a lot…

Fun Visit to Iowa

Last weekend, I traveled to Iowa City with Henry and Carter to have a fun weekend with family. Vish had planned a golfing weekend with his friends up north for the Midwest Ryder Cup, while we headed south to Iowa. I decided it would be easier to spend 10+ hours in the car with Henry…

Happy Birthday Henry!

It seems like only yesterday that we were packing up in the middle of the night and heading to the hospital, ready to welcome the newest addition to our family. A year later, it’s hard to remember where all the time went. Between health scares and helmets, Henry has gone from cute and cuddly to…
