Storm Pictures - Part 1, I am sure

So probably not the best pictures ever as they were all taken inside through the windows, but I think they will those family and friends who are not on the Island, what things are like here. Last I heard, we have had almost 2 1/2 feet of snow. Wilbert and kids are snow blowing with the tractor to get to the feed for the cows and the drifts most places are taller than the snow blower.
 The front porch. We won't be grilling any time soon.
 Looking out the workshop.
 The toy room is very dark now.
 Looking from the living room to the barn. The tractor has a lot of tractors.
Wilbert on top of the drift between the house and milk house.

I will take more pictures once the weather settles down, but the according to the forecast, that might not be until tomorrow.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
