A few random photos

Not a terribly busy week so far... Nate was home sick on Monday and Tuesday -- his first sick days in FOUR YEARS! We think he had the flu -- but whatever it was, it was pretty scary, especially Monday, when he stayed curled up in a ball in bed all day long, not eating/drinking/or moving, with a very high fever. Okay, so it was scary to me, but then I'm a worrier. Today he's feeling better and is back to work.
Other than that? Nate built a treehouse for the boys in our economy sized yard, we had some family over for an incredibly yummy meal (cooked by Nate), our hot water heater busted this morning, and Rhylah tried to eat part of a light bright. Oh, and she does stairs now. LOOKOUT WORLD! So, now that you're up to date ... here are some photos. :)



The boys play Batman after school one afternoon. They tie their "white ones" (blankets) around their necks and put their masks on. Too cute.


Nate uses our super cool pasta maker to cook dinner for our family on Sunday evening. He made homemade fettucinni, and a homemade bolognaise sauce that took all day to cook. Oh, was it worth it!


The boys new treehouse ... it's still not completely done ... it needs a ladder and some wood slats on the side yet. But it's super cool!


Miss Rhylah hangs out in the hammock while her brothers play in the treehouse.

Looks like all of you have been having fun! The picture of the boys is cute and Rhylah looks quite comfy in the hammock!

I LOVE homemade pasta and haven't used my pasta maker in a long time! Maybe someday soon. Homemade spinach pasta is delicious!

i've said it before, and i'll probably say it a million times more, but those windows in your kitchen are so amazing! i think i'd actually enjoy making dinner every night if i had a room like that!

Ohhh, I still love your kitchen windows. Just gorgeous. Your house looks so fantastic, and I'm sure the boys LOVE the treehouse!

There is some kind of flu bug going around in Oberlin, too. Our next door neighbor was sick last week, and a couple of my fellow volunteers at the dog shelter had to call in sick, too. Isn't it weird to have a flu circulating in September??

GREAT photos! ummmmm Rhylah asked me to tell you that you could hang a GREAT baby swing from the bottom of that treehouse!!!!

Dawn: Yes, we love homemade pasta too, and were shocked at how easy it is! And Yummy!
Marzi: Rowan is already 1!! My goodness! Time does indeed fly!
Amy: Yes, a Sept. flu is strange. Almost as strange as a Sept. cold, which me and the kids had two weeks ago! Crazy! And yes, the boys love the treehouse. They go up there everyday after school and play captain hook -- too funny!
Mom: We actually have plans to hang Rhy's baby swing from the bottom of the treehouse. She loves swiniging! So yes, she'll have something to play with soon!
