More pajamas were the request on this sewing Tuesday with Ani. And since "summer is coming up next, like really soon," she determined they should be shorts and short sleeved. I asked how it was the summer was coming up... Continue reading

I dare say that these five might have been the only ones around here who were happy with this weekend's rain, rain, and more rain. We watched as the pond quickly transformed from ice skating rink back to a swimming... Continue reading
