Pictures from the farm

Words cannot express how much I love looking out in my backyard watching Donovan swing high, Robin Hood hat on, singing at the top of his lungs:

I had uh yittle turtle
His name was Tiny Tim
I put him in duh basstub
To see if he could swim.
He dwank up ah duh water
He ate up ah duh soap
And now he's home sick in bed
Wiss bubbles in his fwoat.

Yesterday Ainsleigh came downstairs with a flower clip behind one ear and I heard Donovan gasp, "Oh Ains-wee, you yook boo-ful!" Although they can fight something awful, they are also really good friends. And no matter how much he loves to play Robin Hood in the back yard (miming a bow and arrow, quoting the cartoon, marching around singing the processional music from the movie, etc.) while she is at school, he is always really excited when she comes home from school. And that is really great to watch.

Here are some pictures from when I was in New Hampshire and Joel took the kids to a farm.

WoundWatch: you know the steri-strip the nurse said would last a couple of days or so? Yeah, it fell off when I was changing into pajamas last night. And I'm not exactly an aggressive...stripper? So far, it's holding fast. I suppose, worst case scenario, I will have the equivalent of the little pocket on the sides of Roos shoes. That could come in handy. (GROOOOOAN - WORST.PUN.EVER.)

Um yeah. Worst pun ever. :) BTW - I love Ainsleigh's short hair. I think I may have said that before. She looks so new york chic.
