Where have I been all week?

It’s been quiet around Vernaple. I know, you thought I died. But I didn’t! And here I am to make a blog post!

It’s been a busy week and all I really remember is that there was an alpaca. Don’t believe me? Behold:

It’s a good thing I took a lot of pictures to help my sleep-deprived brain remember the rest of it.

Carousal after Cars 2.

Super sharp! With tetanus! They are serious about keeping people out.

I went to work a bunch. Here is the lake where we can go for smoke/reading breaks.

And this was a huge thing on the side of a building. Do you see the little gears? Instant Megan happiness. Since I’m on such a steampunk kick, you know.

Beren made this. It says, “Mommy.” I’m impressed! It’s typical for a lot of girls his age to be able to make letters and words, but boys… Well, kids like Beren are much more interested in taking things apart and doing physically daring things that give moms gray hairs.

Jody taught us to use her spinning wheel. Thanks, Jody! I need some more practice, to say the least. Here’s Beren trying it out.

It’s going to be a busy weekend here in Meggie Land. I’ve got quite a few things to take care of, like baking so many cookies for the generous sponsors for the Walk/Run for Epilepsy! We’re also meeting the woman who will hopefully be watching our kids this summer, and we’ve got a 4th of July pool party/BBQ to have fun at. After this weekend, all attentions and efforts will be turned toward Pennsic preparations, since we’ve only got a month left!

    I’d like to offer some commentary on the fence picture. It was taken in full color on a sunny day! It seems to be black and white, and the background looks like a weird combination of cloudy sky and water. But it’s not! That’s just a gray building behind it.

    Also, as a proud mama, I would like to point out that Beren didn’t have any help writing “Mommy.” I’m so impressed by him!
