This post is just because it's our life, and it's beautiful, and it's messy, and it's good, and sometimes it's hard, and it's spring in Wisconsin...and I definitely take too many pictures. Oh, and Ayla turned five somewhere in there. They're growing up.
because our yard birds are laying plentifully
because Ayla fearlessly feeds the hens, ducks, and geese
because Sylvia drew an illustration from the Goblet of Fire
because she hoops
because the geese aren't sure what to think of the youngest ducklings
because the ducklings especially love Camille
because Sylvia made lunch and did a better job than I usually do
because they love to climb
because these braided sheets will eventually become a large rug
because our homeschool group hosts a fun folk dance/potluck
because it's getting bigger
because the Hello Kitty Lego set was her favorite birthday present
because Sylvia has mastered 500 piece puzzles
because, well, it's darn cute
because she wanted a store boughten cake this year
because Ayla had a birthday sleepover with facepaints...
and a water fight...
and homemade flubber...
and more water fights
just because, sisters
(and 'cause Camille is selective about the camera being aimed in her direction these days)
because Ayla wanted to meet friends at Wizard Quest for her birthday celebration
because it's an animatronic dragon
because new masks are such fun
because they were solemnly receiving their quest
because the magic of the quest caused all photos to be blurry
To be continued...because my posts can get quite lengthy....
