Turtle emerges into a World of Sounds...

I know. Could he be any turtley-er?


I do not pull his hat down over his eyes. Turtle naturally likes the "shell" look.
Juliet's first time running "loose" in the yard...
What is that over there up in that tree...???



Is that? Is that...
Silas!!!






I promise I'll be nicer next time, Byron....One of the little children I was watching colored me this beautiful portrait before he left. At one point he looked at it quite dismayed and said "aww... is it starting to look scary?" I assured him that I thought it was very bold art... and that I was so glad to have a new pair of earrings.


Doh!
Caught stealing their library suckers out of mom's purse... (Ohh yeah. It buys a lot of time in one of my favorite places.)
Too late Mamma... I just bit the whole top of off!
I heard some thumping and discover the four year old handy-girl proudly displaying her art up on the dining room wall... Gemma in her new fun dress up clothes, cleaning up before Daddy gets home...

Daddy is home and teasing Gemma about how perdy she looks in her dress up clothes.

He's trying to make her laugh by pretending to be a nervous, goofy, little smitten boy...

It's working.
