Sweet Tooth

I've had a couple of days off this week and I was able to spend some time with the boys and to celebrate Sweetheart's birthday.  We also hiked around the property for the past few days  Big brother has been on three hikes in two days.  He is becoming more familiar with Moraine and he can remember landmarks such as the "landslide" and "the tree with bark that makes great shields".  Tonight we saw two different species of salamander and numerous spider webs in the woods.  The water in the ponds are low but Big Brother was able to find some really neat rocks in the dry creek bed.  He is always searching for the next geode.

Little Brother is now eight months and we think he is getting his first tooth.  He is also starting to sleep more during the night.  On Wednesday night we had a large storm come through the area with high winds, heavy rains and lots of lighting.  It kept me up all night but Little Brother slept right on through until 4:30 am.  It was probably one of his best nights.

Crickets are signing at night, cicadas are signing during the evening, and cicada killers are circling during the day.
