^ trying to figure out the network connection with my awesome cousin randy…  he was stop motion animating before his mom told him to do homework, which was playing his french horn.  and now my other little cousin is watching youtube videos :)

i slept outside in the treehouse.  because i wanted to.  for the experience.  with a mosquito net, so i didn’t get eaten alive at night.

^ clara brought me a muffin for breakfast.   after mom told her too.  first, she came out with a muffin and was talking to me through the window.  but she wouldn’t give me the muffin, she just came out to tempt me, and, in her words, to make me come inside.

kid-sitting and…jumping?

i babysit these adorable kids that i just love.

how rylee writes is just precious.  how she forms the letters and numbers is so cute.  but i bet i probably was like that when i was first learning.

and i don’t know if you can see it very well, but her E at the end of LOVE  is like 2 1/2 inches long.  i love it.

and of course, while they were napping, i went outside and took pictures of myself jumping.  one does that every time you babysit, right?

but this time i had a purpose.  my cousin mary’s birthday.

i love my face in this one.  jumping off playground equipment makes great photos, but i wanted to land on land- not shovels or slides.

i have another one that’s similar to this one, but i’m looking down.  i was jumping basically onto my camera, and didn’t really want to come down feet first on it.
