Little House in the Big Woods
Okay, so they are not exactly BIG woods, but we do have a little house. We have not ventured far into the woods this year as my hiking capabilities are greatly hindered by a continental shelf in the middle of my being. On the other hand I have rather enjoyed many hours on the back porch watching the daily evolution of spring to the acres of trees and field behind us. Ahhh. . .it is a beautiful place to be! I should have taken more pictures. Should have. Somehow the continental shelf makes me not want to do anything other than breathe and eat, of course. :-)
As I reviewed the last few months of pictures, I realize that we didn't go many places. Nausea and a lumbering pregnant body tend to keep one put. The simple tasks of a wife/mom/homemaker/homeschooler didn't leave much time to be gallivanting around the VA countryside in search of adventures. So, to document a bit of our lives, I present a few pictures that I managed to take as the days passed. Nothing big. Nothing exciting. Just life.
Sunday photo attempts are always interesting.
And altogether futile at times!
Apparently this hungry boy's mother didn't get his "oh gut" (yogurt) in time,
and since the only clean spoon he could find was a serving spoon. . .
I love their little imaginations!
Not sure where they inherited them. . . :-)
Enjoying a bit of "pay doe" as his brothers do "cool wuck" as he calls it.
I have became quite efficient at playing with this stuff
and teaching at the same time.
Most Friday nights consist of pizza and a movie.
Notice a certain boy's "mohawk" which he dearly loves and wants to sport all the time.
Funny thing is that he thinks my "poof" of younger years was hideous,
and he likes the mohawk?! :-)
Wii tends to follow the pizza.
I have a feeling that soon my kitchen presence will be a bit more scarce.
(And that some woman will love me all the more
for the hours of training this boy is receiving. :-)
Silas had a philosophy that bedtime reading was best done on the belly until he moved to the bunk beds and no longer had the guest bed in his room. It was adorable to see him hop on that bed to show Troy is had to be "wike dis" when it came time to read.
Hmmmm. . .animated talking.
Not sure where he gets that either!

The gracious warm weather once again allowed us the pleasure of



school at the park.

I love spring!
