Here Zach is working on exposing a real fossil! After each of the boys had spent the money they brought to the gem and mineral show, we spent some money on this stone fish for Zach and Gabe to work on. It is supposed to take 15 to 35 hours to completely expose it.
After a stop at the XC ski swap, we went to the Christmas tree farm. The boys had been in the straw bale maze last year when Graeme took them out. I’ve been hearing about it ever since. They had a lot of fun running around the maze and the other fun things there were to do there, not to mention they met up with good friends. We had a fire, roasted hotdogs and marshmallows, and other treats. The weather was great.
But we woke them up for a pancakes and smoothie supper….. don’t they look happy? Unfortunately, I let Noah sleep too long and he took a long time to finally settle down for the night. I had to get out of bed and sleep with him until he finally gave in and I could sneak back to my own bed. A bed which, by the way, is new and absolutely wonderful! I am now waking up only to pee and not to rotate from hip to aching hip multiple times in between bathroom breaks. Time to crawl into that bed now.
