We had a visitor at our house the other day!

It's amazing what one 4-legged little creature can do to a 5 and 6 year old!!
Oh! and did I mention the 32 year old as well?!

Soft Boiled Eggs

The Rooster has discovered soft boiled eggs over homemade toast ... We seem to be eating it for breakfast, lunch, and snacks!  Now all I need to do is find someone who sells locals eggs that don't cost $5.  I'd get a couple of chickens of  my own for eggs but I think that might be against Post Regulations.

A New Construction Site

Here's what we started with!
We needed something a little more substantial, something that wasn't also part of the decoration!
The Rooster cutting and measuring and drilling

and painting

Even the Three Ladies thought it looked like loads of fun!

I have always believed all children need three things to grow:
  • Water
  • Sun
  • Dirt
My children have always gotten plenty of all three ... until we moved into this house.  Since we live on a military instillation and housing is pretty particular about the way things are when you move out I have had a hard time letting West dig like he loves to do.

West needed somewhere to move dirt!
