We’ve got to get back on track here… look for updates soon. Is it worth going back all the way to July, or should I just pick it up from here. I have to admit, part of the reason we haven’t been updating is that it seems so overwhelming to have to go back over 8 months of adventures!

We were so excited to find our first egg in the chicken house last night. It was the perfect birthday gift for our resident urban homesteader, Korum. “Rockstar” (our Goldstar hen) delivered on her name, and became our first layer of a beautiful brown egg with the most amazing deep orange yolk. We knew she would be a star!

There's Rockstar and her beautiful egg!

This post has not been officially approved by Calder, but since I have hijacked the blog, I guess I can post whatever I want (insert maniacal laughter here). We had friends for dinner a few weeks ago, and while I was picking them up from the ferry, Calder picked up little glass stones we had sprinkled throughout the gravel in our driveway and arranged them on our patio table. With the spiral/labyrinth design, I think we may be raising a little hippie, but I thought it looked really pretty nonetheless.

One thing i’m really good at is helping with my baby brother. I really like to help him when he’s upset, especially in the car when mom and dad can’t reach him so well. i just hug him or rub him or kiss him or let him suck on my finger so he is not so so sad.

see, it works.

Last weekend I went at the Harvest Fair with my mom, dad and brother. I had so muts fun that I could hardly believe it. I went on a giant slide, rope swing, peeled apples, had a gross hot dog, went on a tractor ride with Rivers and A.J., hung out with my friend John again, and played with Lola. every year since we were babies, Lola and I get our pitcher taken. this year i got to hold garner without any pillows.
