Treasure Island

There are so many great places to walk to in our neighborhood. The kids have a favorite spot that they termed Treasure Island. Asher always makes sure to have his bucket so he can fill it with shells. 

 These days Dexter wants to live outside. On days where we stay inside, let's just say it doesn't go well.

Chess Men

At least four nights a week I peak into Nate's music room and see this. About a month ago Nate started teaching Asher to play chess. He loves it. I'm sure a big part of it is that he gets to stay up a little later than Piper and have some special time with Daddy. He does actually like playing the game too. 
 He has a really good grasp on the game now. It'll be fun to see if he continues to play as he gets older.

And we are back

Sorry for the long hiatus. Blogger was being a pain, and kept telling me I had to pay to continue publishing pictures. I kept getting mad and walking away. Anyway, I figured it out (I won't bore you all with the technical details). 

Our sitting room still has no furniture, so to make it feel less empty we put the tree in it. 

Asher got a super star sticker at school and really wanted me to take a picture of it.
He then decided he wanted to be the photographer.  

 He actually got a decent picture of Dex. This is him saying cheese.
He's such a turkey.
