June Visits and Videos

 - by Gretel

We’re finally done with the big house projects for the year, having put in pavers on Memorial Day weekend. Having a) one less garden to tend, and b) a solid surface to stand on when walking around our front door is a wonderful thing. There’s still some cleanup to be done, some yard plans, and a bit of sofit repair, but we’re done with the big stuff that we’ve planned.

We were fortunate that Grandpa Jerry and Grandma Laurel could come visit and help us out, mostly by wrangling the little ones. Some of these pictures are from Laurel’s camera. We also had a visit from Grandma Sue during World Wide Knit in Public Day, which I organized events for at the public library. A fun time was had by all.

Ilyana is having a pretty laid-back summer, mostly because of a relative lack of structured activities for four year olds. We’re fortunate that the children’s museum has some three-day day camps through June and August, and that she’ll be attending summer school in July. I think everyone would go a little nuts if she didn’t have something to go and do.

Evelyn is rolling around like a champ at the moment. As you can see from the pictures, she’s close to crawling. She desperately wants to be able to explore on her own power. I don’t think we’re too far away from baby gates.

The best thing ever is the interaction between the girls. Here’s a little video that shows some of the adoration Evelyn has for her big sister, and some of the fun they have together.
