Henry’s First Day of Activism

December 5th, 2016

Through a combination of guilt tripping and bribery I was able to get the boys to join me in the women’s rights march on Saturday.  I was pretty great to see so many people out in full force, making their voices heard.  A couple of pictures from the event, including one of a rather glum child whose feet hurt:


We have ceiling lights!

Henry made this awesome stop motion film.  The whole thing was  his idea.  All I did was hold the phone

Henry really wanted to plant some carrots in our new raised beds. So far, they are looking good (if still kinda small)!

 July went by in a flash! A week in Bend, a week at Camano Island and a friend’s cabin, and suddenly it’s getting dark an hour earlier. Some highlights:
