Mostly Kate photos for you this week... she is adorable and she knows it!
She's our little chicken-herder. Mamma's big backyard rule is to not chase the chickens, but Kate sometimes gets away with it, because she's so cute, yelling "chi-chens! Chi-chens! Catch you!" Not that she's fast enough to get them. She actually does a decent job of herding them back into the coop though...
I hit the secondhand store in Kainantu this week, and picked up this hat for the kids' dress-up bin:
Paired with a fluffy blue tutu, and you have the perfect outfit for sliding down the hill on the grass.
This was the scene in our living room last night. It was a scheme Greg cooked up months ago: we would build a fire in the wood stove so that it was nice and cozy, drag out some mattresses, and the whole family would sleep in the living room together. ...Yeah. I figured, with Brian being gone this week, it was as good a time as any to cross this one off the list. I insisted that Kate sleep in her own bed, and after a few episodes of Dinosaur Train she was more than willing to go. Caleb didn't last long. His mattress was returned to his room before 8:00. So, the happy family camp-out was reduced to just Greg and I. I admit I snuck back to my own bed before dawn. But Greg was cozy and happy all night, so I guess it was a success.
Until next week!
