Here are a few more pictures that I just found,
left over from last spring:
This was still last school year, when Gideon went to school half days in the morning and Micah attended two afternoons per week. We had been playing outside while waiting for Micah and Verity to arrive home from school:
They both love riding the lift on the school bus. Their own personal amusement park ride, twice a day.
Happy to sit in the shade and watch
the brothers and sister play.
Micah loves the trampoline!
I think I appreciate these pictures even more now, as we head into the long, gloomy gray months of Western Washington winter. But even if the sun isn't shining, the kids always find a way to make their own sunshine!
