Here a few pictures from life around here- random snapshots, if you will.

This is Zaya dressed as a Newsie. He's selling papes, and wearing one of the costumes that Grandma Lilibeth brought when they came to visit.

Here Zaya discovers _The Wizard of Oz_. He started it after breakfast, and finished it before Sunday School. Apparently, he's a fan.

Here is Mim's fancy doll that Mr. Mac gave her when we moved. She took off the fancy dress and had me make the doll a bible costume. (No sewing involved.) Then when I went back into the school room, the doll was standing under Mim's desk reading a pamphlet about birdwatching. Who knew?

Art got some scrap materials from a co-worker and made a gigantic slip n' slide in our backyard. The kids had a blast, and I may just have used it myself. No admissions.

That's a pretty awesome slip n slide!!

It was amazing!! Painful, because you get going at a pretty good clip if you're not a 40 pound grade-schooler, but fun, nonetheless.

You all really do have great fun at your place. I would love to give the slip and slide a try...I imagine at my weight I could really zip along.... :)

That does look like fun. I hope it was warmer when they used it.
The doll reading the bird pamphlet looks like she's in a museum of natural history.
