What a Difference Age Makes

Date December 1, 2010

We spent the long weekend in West Virginia, which was Fia’s first trip back to the farm since she mysteriously showed up there back in September. For a day-and-a-half, there were actually four dogs present. Fia was far and away the youngest and most active. She chased balls: She chased her boy (Benton): She goaded [...]

Spring Break 2010 in (near) the Great Smoky Mountains

Date April 6, 2010

It’s a crazy couple of weeks for me travel-wise, with part of that being due to a family trip down to North Carolina for the latter half of spring break. I’ve posted a handful of pictures (16) over on Flickr — it just doesn’t look like I’ll have time in the near term to get [...]

Final Scenes from the Farm

Date February 7, 2010

The last post in this series of pictures from our trip to the farm in West Virginia last weekend. I should have included this picture of Benton in the post dedicated to him from the trip…but I missed it. It’s become something of a tradition that he and I will hike down to the river [...]

Julie on the Farm

Date February 6, 2010

Continuing the theme of some pictures from our surprisingly snow-filled trip to West Virginia last weekend with pictures of Julie… Hanging out with Molly down by the creek Pondering the winter scene With a large icicle Walking back to the farmhouse with her dad

Molly Goes Sledding

Date January 31, 2010

We headed to West Virginia for the weekend and were surprised when it snowed for most of the day on Saturday. Pleasantly surprised! The boys barely waited until the ground was covered before heading out to slide down the hill, despite the 12-degree weather. Julie got the idea to give Molly a ride down the [...]

Thanksgiving in the Great Outdoors

Date November 27, 2009

We’ve been in Ohio for over two years now…and haven’t gone camping since we moved! That’s hard to believe, but it’s also easy to believe — the kids are getting to an age where they’ve got weekend commitments of one sort or another quite often, and, on 3-day and 4-day weekends when we would have [...]

Hello? Is This Thing Still On?

Date November 17, 2009

Three weeks since we got a post up. Busy times: Minor remodel (paint, drywall, new lighting, new pictures) to our first floor half-bath — Julie (and me…because who doesn’t jump at the chance to hang drywall on a ceiling and tape and float it?) Trip to the Columbus Zoo — whole family (“Forced Family Fun,” [...]

Molly Has Met Her Match

Date October 26, 2009

As Elwyn slowed down over his last few years, Molly often seemed downright cruel. The brisker the weather, the more likely she was to decide that she wanted to wrestle and run — neither of which Elwyn was particularly capable of doing. Just a week or two before Elwyn died, our next-door neighbors got a [...]

Another Saturday Night in the Driveway

Date October 19, 2009

The weather was too perfect to not have a fire in our driveway last Saturday. It was a small group — only three families — but it was a fun evening. The classic image of the evening was of four girls aged 5 and under all simultaneously roasting marshmallows: That led to some gooey mess [...]

Pink Bows — Not Just for Little Girls

Date July 22, 2009

Alana has quite a collection of hair ornamentation. When we went to the farm a couple of weeks ago, she wore a large pink bow. You can see it on her head as she spreads corn for the deer: You can see it on her head as she chases Carson on his bicycle: If she’s [...]
