Meet Cordon Bleu

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of our family.
 
 
Matthew has been wanting a fish for sometime time, and we finally gave in.  And seeing as the only relatively safe place in the house is the kitchen, the male betta has taken up residence along with a LEGO Atlantis minifigure on the counter right next to the stove.

March Madness

This whole blog began with some boys and a ditch and a dam.  The days keep on ticking past but we keep coming back to the familiar and fun.
 
 
Days and days of rain finally ended leaving our ditches rushing with water:
the perfect playground for little ones.
 
 
 
Katherine was not to be left out and waded in barefoot
before I finally located a pair of boots a couple of sizes too big. 
 
 
With a little bit a direction, Matthew and Stephen constructed a working dam.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jonathan and Katherine experimented with a pulley system.
 
 
 
And Andrew supervised the lot.
 
 
Ah, yes.
 
 
The long winter is past and spring is upon us:
fresh air, sunshine and lots of outdoor playtime.
