big day.

L lost tooth #3 this morning. she wanted it out before school to show all of her friends! the little tooth is in a medicine jar, tucked into the pocket on bobby the aphid's tummy.  just in time for all of the second graders to see at the morning circle. happy day for my girl.

soccer and house.

it's soccer season again! despite our best efforts to steer her in a different direction, she decided to play again. i don't mind the whole soccer thing really, but do you see those mountains? it's not warm. really. at least it wasn't that day.  

this year she's getting a few kicks in! see those gold shoes? they are her "lucky" shoes.

and as for the house...

we l.o.v.e. it! 

this was a scary scene for a few days. we now have temporary stairs until the metal ones are fabricated.

a little of everything.

easter was wonderful. conference was a beautiful addition. the handmade bunny was a hit, as was cousin zach. beautiful.

we braved the cold and went to the zoo yesterday. we saw the porcupine's face for the first only took about 2 years! it was worth it!

and well. let's not forget that a house is still being built. amazingly fast, if i do say so myself.

this is the "honey bucket" onsite. if you know where that name came from, please educate me!?! did you know they are equipped with a telephone? can you say SANITIZER? fast.

we did venture to baby animals days today. it was crowded and windy.  made me excited to get my chickens!
