Potato Harvest

We’re finally finding time to harvest our potatoes. We probably would have left them in the beds a little longer, but the last round of storms brought down several big branches that killed the vines. We harvested a ton of potatoes. This one was Ben’s favorite! He found his own letter “T”. 🙂

Playing Chess….

or “chest”, as Benjamin calls it– When Ben first started playing, everyone went easy on him (he is a little guy, you know!!). Now, now amongst others, his Grandmother and Papa have both been playing him.

This weekend, Courtney and I managed…
