What a wild three months, full of moving preparation, colds, our first ever camping trip as a family of four, cute baby goats and stormy toddler moods. Some things I'd like to remember: Lying under the stars in our sleeping bags, and Linden staring up at the red speck of Mars, far up above him, … Continue reading January, February, March
This kid's language is blossoming, and he cracks us up daily with the funny ways he puts concepts and words together.
