Greetings from the Woods!

My, my it’s been a long time since I wrote. Lots happening to keep us busy in the Woods. School began once again last month for me and Nikolai. He has figured out reading. He reads everything he sees; the fat free milk jug, the Fred Meyer strawberry jam label, words on T shirts, the newspaper, TIME magazine, anything. It’s great to see him develop. And Gabriel is not far behind. He figured out the number game since I last posted here. Gabriel will celebrate his third birthday on November 1. They’re growing right before our eyes.

My school is going along. I do have an “instructor” who is far from the stellar variety. Oh well, it is a community college, I have to take what is offered. I have my sights on Friday the 13th of June, 2008–Graduation Day!!!! Lots to do to get there but I’m up for it.

And the Woods, or wood, actually. Jerry rented a hydraulic log splitter two weeks ago and with a hard working crew got all the wood split. We now have more than enough wood for the winter stacked on the deck. Jerry and the Hobbitses are in the process of building a shed to store the rest of the wood.

Peggy is a knitting fiend, turning out masterpiece after masterpiece. She is definitely Chasing Bunny, her Memere.

Jerry continues to coach soccer. His season winds down next weekend; his next season will begin shortly thereafter. I swear he’ll coach until he is either a cripple or mindless, neither one coming in the foreseeable future.

Blessings on y’all.
