Here they are.
Maxman - age 10
Hops & Barley - age 9
Camo - age 5
Avo - age 5
They are wonderful and beautiful and some days make me want to pull my hair out and/or drink. Other days I want to snuggle them forever.
They are full of beans and bananas and bright ideas and clever jokes.
JEM and I are very, very lucky. We love them to pieces.
This day was particularly funny in that we had them dressed to go and when I turned around Camo and Avo had both picked special headbands. Then I turned around again and Avo had added striped tights to her outfit and Camo had chosen to wear a purple, polka-dotted leg warmer on one arm.
You learn to roll with these things. It makes life better and more interesting.
