The Hunt, the new bedroom, and other catching up

So the exciting news is that I’ve passed the draft of my research (10 years! phew!) on to co-authors and so we not only get family time, but a little time to blog too.  🙂  Our experiment is going well.  Some of the things Wendy and the kids have been doing for homeschool have been so heartwarming.  The Easter hunt and Potluck they organized was fantastic!  I only took a few pics, but if anyone else took some pics and want to share please do so in the comments or even in a guest blog.

Maia found the Dinosaur Egg!

And we’ve rearranged the house, we decided to move their bunkbed into our bedroom, and move our computers into theirs…  This is supposed to help with Elijah’s nightmares and keep them from wanting to come into our bed at night.  It is also a taste of a more traditional tribal living,  the kids LOVE it.

The Father in me says, “Good work Son”, the Boy in me says, “You gotta be kidding!” 🙂

Meanwhile, Emerakaya is growing fast!  When I came home from work yesterday I gave everyone a quick kiss, but she was having none of it.  She got super fussy, and when Wendy was holding her Emerakaya was craning around Mom to watch me walking to the fridge and the kids etc. It was flattering and touching and so nice to then come over to a big smile and take her into my arms.

Some of our moments together have been such magic. She is even more adorable and heart-fluttering in person than in pictures.

The ducks and chickens are happy too and producing lots of eggs, (anyone care for fresh eggs for trade or sale?)

The kids are in baseball class, and love it. I’ll be organizing games in the summer. Contact me to be put on that e-mail list.

My Sister Annie with Emerakaya at 2 weeks. (We downlaoded our little camera, some real gems.)

Including this one of the girls.

and this one of My Love and New Love

Wendy has been doing an amazing job.

I had a hard time choosing which pics to post, others that you’ll like more no doubt are in the slideshow.  Some of you are in them too.  You can download any of the pictures.
