I have a lot of random photos from June that I don’t know how to group together well, so I’ll just post them this way.
Mr. Imagination badly wanted to make a braided loaf, so one day when we made bread we allowed him to. This is the result.
We were given a whole sheep when we went to visit some friends—what a gift! The boys and Gayle got it cut up as soon as we arrived home, and we’ve been enjoying ribs, chops and roasts. Yum!
Mr. Sweetie took this picture so that he could paint a picture of the tree and the treehut for Grandma.
We spent one Friday morning making cards for Grandma’s birthday. They loved doing it!
Miss Joy was thrilled the day she figured out how to climb on the stool and stand up! She’s pretty daring.

A new bridge is being built beside our village. We can see the cranes from our house; it’s only half a mile or less from us. One day, we saw a pilot vehicle stopping traffic on the highway in front of our house. Nothing came past, and when the pilot vehicle moved away, we looked out the window to the next street over, and saw this. It was an enormous pipe for the bridge. These are being pounded deep into the riverbed to fill with concrete to form the piles for the new bridge. It was as long as a long semi trailer.
A couple of days later, we saw this load: the reinforcing mesh to go inside the pipes! It’s always interesting to see what has changed when we go past the bridge site. The old bridge is a one-lane wooden bridge, built in the 1930s. There is asphalt over the wood, but it requires a lot of upkeep. The new bridge will be two lanes. It will likely feel safer—but I think I’ll miss the old one!
