Are you tired of pictures and no words?
I think it's rare that anyone wants words without pictures, but sometimes one gets to wondering if there's a story behind the photos!
FYI, there are. Lots. I think the pictures tell enough though, and if you're wondering what else is going on in our lives I'll tell ya:
We are still with AJ's folks in California. It's been sunny and Spring-ish, but April arrived with it's trademark sprinkling and cool to nearly-nippy cold weather.
My birthday was yesterday. 31 this year. 30 was good to me so I don't mind stepping into the next age as gracefully as possible. AJ and I took the Bugs for a drive and a short hike to Bald Rock, then my husband took me to dinner at Johnnie's, at the Hotel Diamond in Chico, of which there are no pictures - we managed to live even without the camera to document ;-)
This weekend AJ is helping my brother move some stuff to Idaho where his family will be our new neighbors. This is the best of news! I have missed my family the last two years in Colorado, and can't wait to live close enough to possibly bug each other:-) In all seriousness, Char and Hannah are our best friends. It's unlikely we'll grow tired of each other any time soon.
School continues. Amongst other things we finished reading a "Happy Hollisters" book which I was a hit. We are now on to "Catch 'em Alive Jack" an autobiography of Jack Abernathy. I hope it's good - we LOVED reading about his two little boys who crossed the West on horseback alone at the ages of 5 and 9. Apparently Jack caught a number of wolves by shoving his fist into their open mouths. Sound like a story for boys? I hope so.
Carolina is getting so stinkin' persnickity! If she wasn't so stinkin' cute, it'd be all out war for sure.
She says to me while pointing to Bryce "He a li'l wo-man"
me: "No Carolina. He's a little man"
her: "No. He a li'l wo-man"
me: "Boys are a little man, and girls are little women. You are a little wo-man!"
In halting baby speech she puts me in my place: "No. YOU are a stink-y li'l WO-man!"
And so I am chastened even if it be a somewhat embelished version of the truth.
As for baby brother, he's recovering from being called a "li'l wo-man"
It hasn't seemed to faze his tiny ego. He grunts boy-speak and kicks his legs with the passion of one dreaming of joining the ranks, and ASAP!
Things are well with us.
