Iain: Deep into making plans to build what sounds like a very impressive tree house.

Elijah: Head waiter at the “Eat What We Have” restaurant, where meals are exchanged for favors and often come at a high price.

   Galen and Mairi Rose: Built a “people moving machine”.  Also built by Galen this week; a boat named “The White Turkey”.

Seraphina:  Screamed to go up in the “people moving machine” and cried when we took her out.  Since the change in weather she wants nothing to do with clothing, but she’s all for strawberry smoothies!

Clearly they are all feeling much better this week!



Iain and Seraphina: A sick baby pile up.  I was off caring for another child when she awoke.  He picked her up and she fell back to sleep on him.

Mairi Rose:  This week she discovered two wiggly teeth and learned to knit.  It’s hard to say which she is more excited about.  Yesterday she said to me very sincerely, “Mommy, I think I’m going to be like you and knit a lot of the time.”



We’re home, safe and sound.  I haven’t had a chance to transfer my pictures yet.  I fell behind on the 52 project as I was busy preparing for our trip, so I thought I would take this chance to start catching up.  There are actually pictures of all of them, counting the giant feet!



Elijah- Has had a few days of feeling poorly this week.

Galen- I told him I was going to show this picture to Licorice and then he would be in trouble!

Seraphina- I asked her to bring her sister a treat, wondering what she would do (she already had one in her mouth herself).  She carefully took it and walked through a room and a half to gently place it in Mairi’s hand.  Then she immediately bent down and ate it back out of her hand.
