Down at the Rivah - Part I

On our way home from Ft. Pierce we spent a few days with my Nana's siblings at their house on the rivah in VA. Uncle Butch taught the boys about crabbing, and Micah really bonded with him... Here's the first of a bunch of pics from Aunt Cooka & Uncle Jim's place.

The last two are my favorites :)

Go, go, go!

Sigh... Five? Really? Bike riding learned in one week? Really?

Going "Peo-Pashing"

Here we are, going "peo-pashing" as Micah puts it!

We found three caches that day! And one baby water moccasin... ah-ha, ah-ha

Waking Up to...

This is a shot of what I've been waking up to. Every other day I've jumped up and driven over to South Bridge to meet my friend Candy. We get some exercise hiking over the bridge and then have a quick swim. A very big chunk of my being still longs to own a largish sail boat to live on. Sail around, do mission work. Wake up to this...

Dollies for the Shop

My dollies are stacking up, starting to look more and more cute! I am building a dozen and then will do clothes and post them in the shop. I am enjoying it, but ran out of stuffing so came to a halt... not to mention all the boating!

Little Swimmers

Aaah... holding hands with my five-year-old and hugging my baby. Very, very happy.

Miss you Paul... very, very much.

"Dressed Up"

So, I knew something was up, but my foggy morning brain just wasn't clueing in when Levi waltzed in and announced that he had gotten "dressed up" with a grin that I knew that meant he was up to mischieft. I hugged him and looked him over. He had woken up and changed into play clothes, but the grin and the "dressed up" bit just weren't adding up, because we use that phrase for costumes - you know, pirates and things... I stared at him for a little while, until it finally clicked.
"Are you wearing Micah's clothes?" I asked, incredulous. He beamed at me; I had finally gotten the joke. We laughed for a while, as he pretended to be his brother, and then went to put on his stuff.
Personally, I haven't the faintest idea where all this silliness comes from, I am the very model of serenity... (she types, stiffling a smirk and giggle)
I think it would be a good moment to point out that the score now stands 1 for Daddy and 1 for Mama. Micah loves to go in the store (with Daddy, Nana, whoever), while Levi is content to wait in the car (never alone, of course). Poor kid - I am going to have to try and be more chipper about shopping, or he'll be limited to a lifetime of online purchases (because the world is either going to get even more technical and convenient, or else it's going to overload and he'll be hunting for his food - either way, he'll be prepared)!

Later, Micah had a ton of fun helping Nana decorate the pizza!
