Family picture!

I think this is the spring equivalent of the kids-on-straw-bales pictures: kids-on-stacked-peat-moss-on-a-Lowes-cart.

Old fashioned School day

The Maple Dale 2nd graders had pioneer school today. Joel had a great time.

A new skill

Ian is learning to "dip-dip" his apples into peanut butter this morning. It's the first time he has dipped and not (exclusively) gone straight into the dipping sauce with his fingers. Big improvement.

We came to Lowes for some front garden things, but ended up here. From Ian's reaction to seeing them from afar, there was no skipping it.

First tball game!

Here is Asher running into home. Fun game tonight!

Early morning robin chasing

I'm not kidding when I say he's ready to go outside right after breakfast!

An adorable toddler

This boy is just so happy. Just looking at him makes this sunny day brighter!

A hit.

Joel has been frustrated for a while that his school librarian didn't carry a book about Apollo 12 ("she has 11 and 13, why not 12?!"). Today Asher found a book outlining every Apollo mission at the public library. They are thrilled. ("Mom! There's a picture of Mercury, too!")

Everyone loves City BBQ!

This kid fits right in with the rest of our family! (Right now, he's taking advantage of me typing to drink the BBQ sauce instead of dip things into it.)
