Today is my oldest's birthday - Beth (aka Big Sister) is already ten years old!! It sure has not gotten any easier now that she's older. It's less physically demanding but much, much more complicated. She celebrated her birthday with breakfast out with her Daddy but ended up with her head in the toilet before leaving for school. Poor baby. This weekend she learned how to play chess with her Papa - I think it might be her new favorite game.

Here are some photos I took of my Little Man at Mum & Papa's house:
This wooden rifle was made for my uncle and has been in the family for probable forty years. Josiah had a great time playing with it. I sat beside him and we used our imaginations for a good half hour. He was so quiet about it, I was really surprised. I guess he doesn't realize how much noise guns make.
Below are some photos - just an ordinary moment in the life here. I dug out a kindergarten workbook for Josiah to play with and we did a rock sorting activity.
Okay - so I'm not going to make any promises about what may or may not be happening at the blog this week. I've got some great ideas for posts this week which may (or may not) be published this week. I'm also working on a holiday gift and gear guide so if you've got questions and/or suggestions be sure to let me know!
Don't forget to get ready to participate in this week's SWAP at The Bartering Blogger on Thursday!!
