Whatever the reason, we've had a lot of good times this week, whether it was picking peaches,
checking on the chickens,
telling tales by the firepit,
making a cake,
(Michaela made this one by herself, even the from-scratch chocolate butter frosting (well, a little help from Granny on that, but mostly by herself),
or making crafts, like this candle lamp they made with a jar, some glass pebbles, a tea light and a lamp chimney,
or learning to shoot Poppa Larry's slingshot
or just taking pictures of the cats,
we all had a great time. It was like a mini-vacation, right here at home. I'm going to miss them when they go home; there is nothing that livens up a house like young voices and energy.
