pictures from the weekend
The kids have been playing monopoly a lot.
Sarah tried on my shoes.
Davy read his book in our bed.
My brother Dave sent the children some used books…..these are just some of the wonderful titles he chose for them. Summer reading!
We sat on the porch together, watching the rain.
But then the thunder got loud and someone ran back indoors:
Seth didn’t feel good on Saturday so we made beds on the porch.
As we snuggled, I could look up at the hummingbird feeder. I couldn’t resist getting my camera……..
What an amazing little creature.
Rich planted a rosebush for me. It has yellow flowers and smells so good.
Jacob had a baseball game. He played well and was eager to tell me about it.
Caleb lost his two front teeth! He looks so adorable.
Down at the stream, we found a dead crayfish and the boys studied it.
Caleb, David, and I went for a walk on Saturday and we found four snakes. The first was only a skin……
The second is what we think is a MILK SNAKE. Caleb almost stepped on him and he slithered away into the woods.
I’ve mentioned this once before, but I’ll write it again: CALEB LOVES SNAKES and studies them from books and the internet.
The third snake was a crispy corpse.
You can tell by their expressions that they were disturbed. “Poor snake.”
The fourth snake was alive and we almost stepped on this one, too. We aren’t sure what this one is, do you?
Caleb was so excited about finding four snakes (in about a half hour time) that he named the day SNAKE DAY.
