This is it. This is where we are going to be living. What could be better...well...maybe a house. Now that this area has been level it looks like a real house site.
Of course, there is still plenty of work to be done. Road to be finished, stumps to be moved, perhaps more trees to come down.

While inside the house I am packing, outside dozens of Waxwings are waiting for their turn at the Holly bush. How do they know whose turn it is? They are organized, systematic and move quickly on when their work here is done. I think I could use some lessons.
Now that the trees have been cleared, the site for the house is looking more like a yard. Above the site a long ditch has been dug to let water continue to flow without affecting the yard. If you say yard enough it really helps.

The day was marked in the only way it should be for a 10 year old boy. A few friends and Star Wars...lots of Star Wars. From the preparations for a Jedi training obstacle course to the movie watching while tucked into bed, these boys were all about Star Wars. It was, absolutely, a celebration not to be soon forgotten.

There was still time for a little adventure and the discovery of a tiny salamander deep in the woods. We will watch him for a while and then take him back to his home.

It is important to mark the beginning of Spring with an event. So when the neighbour's new kitten climbs a tree it's time to call in the fire department. I've always enjoyed what a small town has to offer and this is one more thing to add to the list. A volunteer fire department that takes all calls seriously.

This past month (March..ahem), found everyone enjoying the last of the snowy days in different ways. Audrey was ready for the snow to be GONE and so she spent many days snug inside working on a variety of projects.
Adam waited patiently..well..not sooo patiently for his parcel to arrive. New snowboard wax. That couldn't possibly be a cat on the table. Not in my house. Not on my table. Yikes.
Can you believe that one of the most important snowboarding lessons is to learn how to iron. What a perk!
And so one more winter has come and gone. Thoroughly enjoyed but hardly documented. Ah well, spring is a time for new beginnings.

I'm not really sure where the past month has gone. There seems to be so much activity an yet so little made it to my camera.
Joseph loves being home, spending time working on whatever catches his interest on that day. For Joe this could mean lego battles, adventure novels... or even a little math.
Any day can be a science day. In fact, when you have the option to do what you want when you want all day everyday can be the right time for a little experimenting.
When you are on a roll you gotta just keep going.
I'm happy to be able to stay home because... it does look rather cold out there.
Not everyone is interested in staying inside when the snow is piling up and the wind is blowing, and when Adam calls for a photographer... well what's a Mom to do?
Snowboarding. Apparently, five (..yep 5) times a week to Martock is not quite enough and so the backyard must be converted into a board park.
There are soooo many tricks to be practiced and perfected that there are simply not enough hours in the day and so..

Everyone was in on the creating. Joseph spent part of each day planning, preparing and filming a movie. The possibilities are endless when it comes to lego...and star wars...and battles.
Audrey perhaps dealing with a little horse withdrawal.
