Et Stego était son nom.

I had planned to have a bigger post, but I’m still missing a few pictures, so it’ll have to wait a bit.

Baby flowers

We picked up some flowers at the garden center the other day. Some herbs and some tiny squash as well.

While I was doing this:

SmallKid was doing this:

Miss B.

We had to make the heartbreaking decision to let our old girl go today.

She will be greatly missed.





Shearing Day!

Yesterday, SmallKid was told that we were taking our sheep to Grandma’s house to get their sweaters taken off. She thought that it was taking much too long for everyone to get ready.

We invited some friends (some knitter-type friends who are really excited about yarn and sheep). You can just see how thrilled these kids are, can’t you?

Some people found things they liked.

Frieda went first. She was the first one at the door of the trailer.

She was a very good girl.

After Frieda came Maude. Maude was less cooperative. Apparently, the friendlier they are, the more work they are, because they don’t have that bit of fear that makes them hold still. Maude is fearless.

This comparison is a little unfair, since Frieda is the scrawniest one I’ve got. Twins take a lot out of you, apparently. However, she has recently learned that halters mean that you get to go on a walk all by yourself to eat as much grass as you want, so she’s starting to put some weight back on.

Hi Maude. I pawned my camera off on my friend, so I actually get to be in pictures! And, you know, lanolin + electronics is really not the best plan.


This used to be Annie.

That’s a lot of yarn.

A lot of yarn.








A couple more pictures from our fishing day.

This kid claims to be almost 6. I don’t believe it for a second.

We went to the zoo the other day. The seals finally got a new enclosure where they can actually swim. It’s pretty cool. The kids loved it.

These are pretty much the only pictures I took, since the rest of the time was spent picking kids up so they could see.
