Our Little Garden

This if the first year we've had any type of garden, and yesterday I discovered little tiny peppers and tomatoes!

Andrew the Scholar

Andrew already shows great promise of being as great a scholar as his daddy. although he is leaning towards paleontology as his choice area of expertise. He's getting a head start by reading this book about dinosaurs. No little kid books for him! :-)

Medieval Boluyts

Caleb, Cassidy, and Karsten came over on Thursday to play with Chris's woodpile in the barn. They spent a lot of time rooting through the mountain of scrap wood and building weapons and other useful implements. Here's Cassidy with her shield and sword.

Karsten is checking his sword to make sure the glue is dry.

Leb helped Uncle Chris with the yard and then spent time in the barn. Aim, can your kids come over every week to help get rid of our wood? :-)

Sweet Little Andrew

Chris took a picture of Andrew after he fell asleep a couple of nights ago. Isn't he cute? :-)

Window Boxes

Chris made me some window boxes out of scrap wood to hang outside my kitchen windows. I never knew I had such a resourceful husband!

Bathroom Remodel Update

Here are some pictures of our bathroom remodel, plus a few cute ones of Andrew helping out. Within the next week, total remodel should be complete, thanks to my Dad!

Filling in the Hole

This week we got a large load of sand to fill in our bomb shelter hole. Even without grass it already looks better, and Andrew's got a huge sandbox!
