it's been BEAR with me.

the workers are gone from our house...they've been there for 5 weeks....all that's left to do...Jordy can tackle...he's practically touched every piece of wood in it anyhow. he decided it was time to stain...
AND it's toxic we moved the apartment above the barn.
whitty loved cruisin around on the floor up there in the wide open space. here he is at the top of the staircase..
did i mention i started back to school...University of Wyoming is doing a program with my district and they are paying for the ELL I hopped on board and plan to continue on for my MASTERS after the endorsement...did I mention Jordy is doing it too? So, while we are away...he's been trying out his new's going okay. he cries when i leave...and as soon as he sees me when i am there to pick him up..he cries again. it makes me feel like he is miserable. ugh. they say he does okay. not convinced.
times are we got away for a minute in the yard for a little photo-shoot out!
poster it.
get mommy.
practicing with my spoon. I got this in the bag...but eating with your fingers is way more fun.
Friday morning...we woke early to head to GREEN river lakes for a camping/birthday weekend.
we met our friends...the schells there.d
whitty was such a good boy in the car...when you think you are almost have another 20 miles on a bumpity bump dirt was slow-going.
pulling into our campsite.
night one...we had crazy thunderstorms...later in the night whityn woke with a blood curdling scream...and couldn't be soothed...for what seemed like an eternity. finally he settled down...only to happen again about 1 hour later...this time worse..we thought we needed to go to the hospital...we were really very scared.
we took him outside...and he calmed right down...and i rocked, sang...him back to sleep...the next friend said it could be a night terror...has anyone experienced this before?
waking up early to greet the cold mountain air....check out whitty's new digs (hat and boots from timothy schell) THANKS Rene.
the boys in the hood.
father and son.
there was some serious cooking going on...usually everyone has to be responsible for a dinner and a breakfast...this morning was Gary's turn...Gary is the great guy that sold us our camper in the spring...he cooked up an egg scramble for breakie one morning and he even makes me a latte. I like Gary.
Scramble this.
talking and hanging out with REne is the most fun..she is an easy-going momma from Lander, Wyoming and I just adore her...all of her. She is such a super momma and I admire her!
