Two weeks ago, now, Jay and I droe to Anchorage and back, leaving Friday afternoon and returning Saturday night.
The next weekend the Renaissance Faire got rained-out, but the girls still got to wear their costumes:
On Saturday to Papa and Grandma’s, and Sunday to church. Yes, Melody wore a shirt under that vest.
I find I didn’t get a picture of Elisha in his bi-colored “jester” outfit, but Mom got several, so I’ll have to get hers.
He didn’t really care for it on Saturday (thought we managed to “trick” him into wearing it, which is no small trick these days).
But when Elisha saw the girls in their costumes on Sunday he was excited to put his on again, and as soon as Jay tied the back you would have thought he was wearing a cape, because he began at once to make these flying leaps between pieces of furniture. I felt a little shell-shocked.
Something about costumes, I guess…
That same weekend a bird flew into our garage:
Elisha was the first to notice him (Jay and I couldn’t figure for the longest time what he was so excited about).
He was still stuck after hours with the door open and it took some getting to get him out, but it was finally accomplished. (A flashlight in a dark garage and a dry humidifier figured largely in this process.)
Just this last Saturday we did a lot of biking around, and Jay found a way to fit all three kids (and yes all buckled) in the bike trailer.
