We had some friends over to play this morning. It was fun for me to hang out with my friend Monica and fun for the girls to get to know Ella and Liam better. Here's Anna and Josie showing Ella and Liam the intricacies of making soup in the bird bath:
Husband, father, student of civil engineering, the master gardener and bread baker in the house and loves when he gets to go for a good, hard bike ride.
Six year old lover of all the delightful details of life. Tree climber, bike rider, rock climber, gardener, Mama snuggler, artist, reader, best friend to her sisters, a kindhearted compassionate girl who knows herself and stands secure and confident in who she is with her feet planted strongly in the natural world around her.
Five years old, full of spunk, adventure and daring. She loves to snuggle, gives hugs freely and is probably the most social of the three. She is always thinking about those around her and if you need a babysitter she will follow your little one around untiringly and keep them out of trouble. She loves riding her scooter, swinging high, any art project, and is always ready to lend a helping hand. She won't be left behind if you are going out the door.
The cutest, smiliest, most independent 3 year old around, has mastered climbing and is trying to learn to ride her two wheel bike so she can ride 'all by herself' to pick up her sisters at school. She laughs easily, especially at the antics of her silly sisters. Favorite pasttimes are playing in the hammock and building with blocks and lincoln logs.
