These are turkey hunting videos of Levi & Joe from spring 2013.  Just ran across them & wanted to save them here.  
He's grown up so much in just the last 10 months since these were taken.

Winter Hangout

Our favorite hangout:  the children's wing at our local library.
I love that we walk in & Mrs. Theresa knows the kids by name.
Indigo digs the touch screens on the computers.

Jan 7th

My crafty helper organizing pins in the sewing room on a cold day.

My little bookworm up reading until all hours during his winter break from school.  Plowing thru chapter book now.  Finishing up the Magic Treehouse series, dabbling with Nancy Drew, a couple westerns, lots of Indians & artifacts, and a non-fiction about a girl living during WWII.  I love it.

2nd of Jan

We went to the Moganville rock quarry while home - this is getting to be a regular thing for us while home - fossil hunting at various abandoned quarries.  It helps that my Dad is a geologist & can explain how the fossils we find are from an ancient sea floor.  This quarry yield lots of fossilized coral and 'clam shells'.  


coral

Part of this quarry has filled in with water - while I was in high school kids would come here to party.

Joe shot a buck a few days ago.
He & Levi followed the blood trail & Levi was the one to find it.

Time to order seeds.  Pouring over catalogs.

Levi in front of the Ecology Department - where I went to college & worked for a number of years.
