August 2011

Playhouse and slide at Jaime's old apartment - 2009

Mia - Thanksgiving 2009

Jill and Jonah on the old swing set. I think this was about 2005.

The playhouse and swing when they were new. It turned out that this pretty corner of the yard was a haven for mosquitoes.

Jill's first sight of the second hand little playhouse that her dad brought home as a surprise.

I was struck by the morning light on the little playhouse the other day after all the dark stormy weather we have had lately. It is just a home for wasps now. We need to carry it over to Jaime's house where Mia can actually play with it. I have found that children are like puppies. They don't really like to "play" in the back yard all by themselves. It doesn't help that I no longer have a swing she can use.

  1. Very true! I find that if they have friends or cousins over, they'll often play outside, but they aren't good at playing outside by themselves.
