This is amazing! I had to read your blog and look at the photos 2 times, I enjoyed it so much! The family photos are PERFECT, really, I love them both so much! I LOVE your new hair Michelle! You look fresh and energized Mama! The cheeks in the last photo are the cutest cheeks I have seen since my babies had their own baby cheeks! The photos of Si running in front of the airstream is great too. I am thrilled that you all are enjoying Alaska so much! WISH WE WERE THERE WITH YOU! You got the money shot on the whale! Deb

Totally amazing! I can't wait to show this to my boys! Doesn't it make you feel small to think of all the things we DON'T know and all the things we never even thought of knowing...or not knowing, know what I mean?

Thanks for sharing Mark! Richard and I both read this and found it very interesting. Like your wife, you are a good writer. Loved your photos, esp the ones of you!
Hey guys, this movie is great!My favorite was them breaking their tv--Cole I loved when they got the paint in their face-Camp My favorite was when the Lego car went across the city. I wonder how long it took them to set that up? Probably a month. Cody We are going to watch it again, for the 3rd time. I shared this on FB. Thanks for sharing it here!!
Toggle Commented Mar 16, 2010 on Have you seen this video? at The Binker Files
Cody and Cole guess red and blue icing. Camp guesses on cookie on one side and a different color cookie on the other side.

My guess is a lovely red crayon and a pretty blue crayon! Or maybe nerds on one side and red hots on the other!

Wow! What a fun forced family fun day! I want one of those! Count yourself lucky to have family like that!! The boys loved watching the video of Silas skiing! Great photos, all of them. Poor Tiny, that was so cute. Glad he got to hang out with his Daddy all day though! You guys look like you are having fun!

That looks like so much fun! I am going to order that book this week!! Thanks for mentioning it, I meant to order it, but had forgotten! I think that will be our science next year!

We tried this and it is fun! thanks for sharing!
Yeah! So nice to see a photo of what you guys are up to! So cute that Tiny is 'looking up to Silas' in the astronaut photo. More photos of your Canadian adventure, please!

Happy Birthday Tiny!!! I really can't believe you are 4. That sure was a sweet comment above, from your Nana. I liked reading about the day you were born. Cody, Cole and Camp all say "Happy Birthday Tiny!!" And just think, Silas was just Silas until you were born and then he was not just Silas...he was "Silas, the Big Brother"!!

Michelle! I love this! I recently found out that we can get a local CSA, even through part of the winter, pretty good for Alaska! I guess they have greenhouses... Would you mind posting the bread recipe?? or just e-mail it to me. I really think I would love that. I do something similar, but it only gives me 2 days of bread and we could use more. I am always thinking, too late in the day, that I should have done bread! Your bread photo is just beautiful!

Those are adorable! I love the little love bugs! I wish we had done those!! Where did you get the idea? I'll have to post a photo of my paper tulips too. Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

Very cute and smart! I love the way his hand is "presenting...." his invention. I also love how dirty his shirt is. Seems like it might be a good sewing project for his Mom to make a lab coat for the little scientist, or an apron!

This is just wonderful! I read it to Richard and we were both cracking up about 'fondling the sculptures'! We are motivated to look at our art book today, we will look at the You-tube Van Gough and maybe check out some more at the library! Thanks for the motivation!!

You are SO lucky! I love it! Yes!! The skate track through the snow is just gorgeous! And I have to ask, who took the photo of you, Mark and Silas? Tiny??
Toggle Commented Feb 4, 2010 on We're so lucky... at The Binker Files
Yes, that is a great photo of Silas skating! I love the gloop stuff they made, we make something similar and it is fun! I wrote down the name of the science book, looks like a great recommendation! The water/plumbing activity looks like perfect fun for a wintery day!!

I also love your produce bag. How does that work, exactly? As you are selecting your produce do you just put in in the cart, without a bag and then bag it after? Or do you have lots of them and you put apples in one and oranges in another? How does that effect the cashier who weighs it? I have been thinking about this one, in relation to the bags I use for bulk, oatmeal, nuts and stuff. I don't know how that would work with the cashiers weighing my goods.

Once again, you have inspired me! Your one small change motivated me to buy fabric for a tablecloth and cloth napkins for my husband's B-day, instead of buying fun but disposable goods. I probably paid around the same price but will have something that will last many year! We use tissues every single day. Now that we have a washing machine, I really think I could make this work. Wow! I would have never been motivated to try this until I saw yours, they look so delicate and soft. Thanks for doing the One Small Change, you are right, it does inspire other changes!!!

Silas and Tiny, here are our guesses. Cody- red one is the toy (Cody wants you to know that he guessed the red one first....) Cole- red one (the black one has real eyes.) Camp red one Let us know the answer after you get lots of other guesses.!

Michelle!!! That was just gorgeous!! I can't imagine a more peaceful place to spend your winter. I am motivated and might even make it outside today, after seeing your photos!! Your hair looks great, it has really grown long. The photo of all of you on the ice is a perfect family photo. So nice too, that you have neighbors around some. The photo of the road is really nice too. ALL the photos were great. My boys want more info on the double igloo, how did you build it??

Michelle, glad to know it isn't just me. I get sooo super relaxed and then I MUST close my eyes!! It seems to be worse in the afternoon. I am almost NEVER sleepy in the mornings, unless I read a lot. Yesterday we read a long book, I closed my eyes for 5 minutes and got up and drank another cup of coffee....all before 8 a.m.!

Wow, that's a few books you got a thousand!--Cole Good luck Silas, you might have to get your Mom a few drinks of water, my throat gets dry when I read a lot to the boys. So glad he LOVES to read and I agree, that morning/reading/snuggling time is PRECIOUS.
