Summer Update 19 June

We’ve been so busy. Here’s a sample:

Sage and Elena are very busy on the beach.

Kids on a log.

Swotti from Neverending Story? The Kinetic Sculpture Race in Arcata is amazingly fun. Thank you, Kari!

Yup, the trees grow big here in Cascadia!

I climbed a big mountain–the tallest in Oregon!

Sylvan’s in the midst of his first season of baseball. He pays attention, which is 90% of the game (and of life, his Dad will tell you). Here he is playing first, readying himself for the play.

Elena graduated from preschool while wearing a clown nose.

Mom (and Elena) had never been to Yosemite, so the kids, Mom, and I went down for a quick trip. Great weather the whole time, no marauding bears.

Here’s the Yosemite Valley looking like a Hudson River School painting.

I climbed Mountain #15 for the year while I was in Yosemite: Lembert Dome up in Tuolumne Meadows, a great little pre-dinner hike.

Sitting on a rock in the sun in the Tuolumne Meadows campground, near one of the world’s loveliest rivers, the Tuolumne, which the kids and Mom used as inspiration to paint pictures and do yoga.
