Rachel, Chiara, and Asher rearranged the toys and got out new books last week. Now Chiara's interest in the books is even higher than it was before. She will bring you book after book and say, "read, read" or "gain, gain" (again). Here I am reading her one of Asher's favorites from this age: Dr. Seuss's ABC book.

Chiara also likes to dress herself. I arrived home this day to find that she had adopted a rapper persona and was wearing a pair of too-big jeans backwards with nothing else on. Note her standing up in her high chair.

Dwayne, Michelle, Duncan, & Phoebe visited us this past weekend. Here are some pictues of the kids together.

This was a dress of Rachel's.

And finally, here are some pictures of school at Casa Serrins/Springfield.

More Park Pictures

It turns out that Rachel took more pictures on her phone yesterday. Here are a few more.

I really love this last one of Asher.

Kids at the Park

Rachel took this picture of the kids on the play scape on her phone. This was after a "bike-run" in which Rachel and Chiara ride leisurely on the bike while Asher runs and gives directions.

July Farm Trip Pictures

We were supposed to visit the Farm over July 4th weekend but did not get to, so we went last weekend. It was a very good visit and we got to see the three goats that were born the day we arrived. But before we left, Asher had a chance to teach us all some of the dances he learned at summer camp.

At the farm:
Chiara loves to play "phone." Here the phone was for Mama. I can pretty much promise you it was Nernie calling.

And Chiara got her groove-thing on.

While Rachel mucked out the barn (yes, that's really a thing), Chiara took her nap. When she stirred, I picked her up and she slept on me another hour plus.

Asher played Rush Hour with Andrea and Sudoku with Grandma.
