Free family fun tomorrow night–get outside!!

April 13th, 2014 · No Comments

Total lunar eclipse around midnight tomorrow.

The weather is perfect for backyard camping–if you have chinaberry trees, they might still have a bit of fragrance left. Jasmine’s in bloom. It’s cool enough still after dark.

Sleep outside on a futon and set your alarm and watch the lunar eclipse!

If you’ve not yet taken your kiddos camping, this is a great trial run….

More on the lunar eclipse from UA Science/Flandrau’s planetarium director, Michael McGee…

Rolling with it

April 12th, 2014 · No Comments

Clementine was all set up for her school’s fundraiser. Shipherd and Linc had left earlier to go to City High’s Pennington Street Block Party, but T and I wanted enough time to get ready at our leisure.

She put together a fabulous outfit, of course, complete with jewelry, but before she left she wanted to hug one of our chickens. Candy appreciated the affection, but also pooped on Clem’s dress.

Fortunately, we saw it as a positive–opportunity to pick a new dress! And change accessories! Some of the accessories she kept; others she ditched, and she added a rainbow bindi.

It all turned out well.
