Mini Engineer

Lydia built this structure all on her own last night while I prepared
dinner. I'm impressed.

Brain play

Lydia's Godfather bought her Wedgets for her birthday. She stacked and

Bathtime Approaches

We're returning from Lydia's first Russian Scout Camp. This photo is

massive bubble-bath that she's going to get when we get home. She/we
are happily camp-filthy. What an awesome time.

Actual camp pictures are forthcoming.
