This is Ella. She is Wylie's favorite chicken and the most docile. The kids played a trick on me and said that she got up here on her own. Not so much. Silly kids.
We spend last weekend and part of this week scraping paint off our house and wooden windows.
Not because we wanted to mind you. You know I like some peely paint, but apparently the Federal government doesn't (what unimaginative grumps!) If someone is going to buy our house with an FHA loan (and chances are good they will) then we have to scrape and paint all flaky paint.
Boo. So that is where we are at.
I reaarranged the boys room and moved out their desk for a more "spacious" look.
Of course now they just have more floor space to completely cover with Lego's and socks.
This child loves water and rain. He loves to swing and he loves to create gigantic mud holes that he fills with water and then calls them things like Miles Sea.
We have GOT to move to the country. Stat.
Here Wylie is holding one of the baby goats at Darley Farm. So precious!
On April 18 this blog will be 6 years old. I took this photo early on, within a month or so of starting this little experiment.
I took this photo this week.
So much has changed in 6 years.
So much is the same.
If I had told myself then what all lay ahead I might have slapped myself and committed me to a psych unit. I wonder if I would have been less anxious about so many things if I had just known what was coming? I wonder if I can have the faith to believe that the same will be true in another 6 years and I should just settle down and enjoy the journey?
I hope so.
