Winter Wonderland at the Triple R

Early one morning, Little Sister woke up all of her older siblings.
She ran to each one as fast as she could
exclaiming, "It 'nowed, you duys!".

Unfortunate homesteaders.
We made a 6' snowman.

Seargent Snow:

Trail Blazers

I took my wranglers out to chop down
the invading alder trees
and blackberries along the gravel driveway.


"He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruits in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers."

An Adventure in the Great Outdoors

Keslie and I took the kids on an afternoon hike.

We found a salamander.

I saw a tree in a mud puddle.

The boys and I played army. (I haven't done that since...1942!)
-Fern hats and face paints-
-Camo and creeks-

"The heavens are telling of the glory of God;

and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge."

Psalm 19:1-2

Boys and Boats

It was raining deer and elk,
and Katie-Jane was filled to the brim.
My brothers went fishing "in" the boat.
