Random November Pics

Even though they were a week or so beyond the peek, James, Mom, and the kids were able to go leaf peeping, where they ended up back at Sky Meadows State Park for lunch, and further explored the Discovery Area. Clearly it was a nice day to be out and about. These are just around …

Random October Pics

These are just of Ben enjoying his toddler bed, and him on a walk, throwing leaves into the stream below that bridge. We went apple picking! This time to Hollin Farm, about an hour away from our house. It was a pretty nice day -clear and grew warmer as the day wore on -and there …

Random September Pics

Evie spent her last day before First Grade just hanging out, enjoying the nice weather with some tea. Ben spent it hanging out with Daddy and getting him to read a variety of books. Even though we were doing distance learning, we still had to commemorate Evie’s first day of First Grade. James had a …

Random August Pictures

These are truly random pictures. No stories -except the one where Evie is washing her bike and Ben is totally helping -just some cute pictures. Of Ben, apparently.

Random July Pictures

The Fourth of July

We were supposed to go to Aunt Jan and Uncle Bob’s farm, but the coronavirus put those plans up in the air. At about the last minute, permission to travel beyond 120 miles was rescinded, so we stayed home and had our standard BBQ fare, plus some poppers and sparklers. And scooter-riding.

Random June Pictures

Wow. So it’s been 6 months since I’ve added anything to the site. That’s mostly been a function of having some storage issues with the site server, but also just the general craziness of trying to find a rhythm during quarantine, readjusting that rhythm as school begins… readjusting again as all-day-sickness sets in and remains… …

Random April Pictures

From about late March through the end of the school year, I homeschooled Evie. Starting about mid April, Evie’s teacher started sending weekly lessons, to include worksheets and projects. But until then, I was on my own. One of the things we did was make homemade play-doh and paper bag jellyfish -and then we made …

Random March Pictures

Here we are sneaking cookies while Ben is elsewhere. Evie has a ways to go to understand such things as “act natural” and “clandestine.” Every now and then, Evie will read Ben his bedtime story. Ben seems to be the limiting factor more often than not, but it’s still sweet to watch. Ben is both …
