Spencer and I need to make bread one Sunday, we were both kind of frustrated so we hoped kneeding that bread would help.  It did.

The bread turned out fabulous and was perfect for sandwiches.


For my Birthday this year we went and rode a steam engine in Chehalis.  It was a nice 1.5 hour train ride with lots of soot, water spray and family.  It was a great day of train rides.

Today I had a guest artist come in and give a concert for 30 of my middle and high school kids. It was way cool. The artists name is Sandip Burman, he is from India and plays the Sitar and tabla drums. I didn't get any video but I have a few pictures from the visit.

I also got to play his Sitar. The strings are a lot sharper than guitar strings and there were 20 of them in two layers. My finger still hurts after 10 hours of resting. I'll have to get the pictures of me playing the sitar from our librarian who was there taking some pictures later.

Overall, fantastic experience and my kids loved it too.

Pictures from day 1 in hospital

More hospital pictures! Kelly is up and moving now. Benjamin has night and day mixed up. And I have the kids. They are so excited to have a new baby in the house. We have some really cute pictures of them holding the kids except the pictures are on the camera still.
