We stumbled upon this awesome block of wood in a store the other day and simply had to get it for our house. I placed it on the kitchen window to gaze at while I do dishes. Well, actually, where I do dishes when my mother and mother-in-law aren't here--they tend to spoil us rotten and always do the dishes. Truth be told, I realize that I love doing the dishes when I'm all by myself and it's quiet. Makes me feel very grounded and present.
Sojo and her cousin had a blast goofing around in the van the other day. This has become a yearly event for the two of them. Not sure it will be around long enough for either one of them to drive it, but that would be the coolest picture.
