Getting Out

Since you last saw him, Aidan has passed his week birthday,
and gone from 6 1/2 pounds to ten.
Has started drinking with the big boys,
(see the difference in three weeks - 10 lbs vs. 28
) and been sleeping with older women!
Oh! How they grow up! We started the week with more indoor recess, and family style dining, but it was time to take all that energy outdoors.
Last week-end's thaw made it possible to see some grass and open some gates to get the youngsters outside. The mom's led by example and taught terrible eating habits. How embarrassing. Abi learned how tasty tree recycling is. Ali worked on cleaning her plate. After a couple of days, everyone learned that it was each goat for himself when the grain came out.
Even the little guy. The kids are already good little lawnmowers, and are really putting on some size. Even Aidan gets right in there, but mom is still tops!
Don't be fooled by the sun glasses. Its just to keep the snow glare down. We are in a single digit cold spell, and have Saba due in the next couple of days. I hope she can hold on until we reach something above freezing - please!
