drama camp redux

Four of my children are gone this week. It is so quiet around here! I guess this is what it would be like if they were in school. Bede and Dorothy would be home, and sometimes Gloria.

I don't like it.

Here's what we did.

just a picture post

This is what I see when I wake up!

Seven kids, 266 popes, and one historic moment.

We got some new furniture, made by an Amish guy! It is nice stuff!

There's a dining table (12 feet/3.6 m long with all the leaves put in) two chairs and four benches.

Bede reading to Dorothy

Came around the corner to this:

easy Monday morning

Dorothy is nursing, then we'll fold diapers.

Gilbert is taking over the world through Bad Piggies dominance.

Abaigeal is doing her maths.

Bede and Gloria are computering. I think Bede has a movie logo there.

Faith is on the way to wash dishes.

Trixie is asking me why the Sphinx has no nose.

fibonacci redux

Dorothy is wearing a top/dress that I made for Trixie. 

Here's Trixie in the same dress, in 2006, when we met the Yarn Harlot:
