This is us. We are not great (as our friends and family know) at keeping in regular touch and sending frequent photos. We hope to document big events and/or random good pics we though were worth sharing.

Bought Scott a magnet

Scott thought of me when he saw this magnet (weeks ago) so, naturally, I bought it for him for his birthday (this past week).

Random Recent Shots

Maya's Knitting Now

My friend Beth told me she would show me in minutes how to do a basic cable knit - so - I made a knitted (cable-knit) hat which prompted Maya's interest in knitting. Me telling her she would probably find it too frustrating to learn yet was probably what made her want to do it even more - to prove me wrong. It was going to be the shell for a pencil, she wants it to be a blanket for one of her stuffed animals.

Aidan and Maya are naming the ants in our front yard....and Aidan is designating ant-only zones.
