Just like Grandma

Or Bado, as she's known around here.

Our strong-willed child

He insisted on dressing himself for bed.
We pick our battles around here.
(Notice the chigger bites on the underwear line---poor Kansas boy!)


A house built by their great-great-grandfather
long walks to the lake
swimming with frogs and chasing lizards
echoes of memories from their mother's childhood
mining quartz on the hill above the house
dusty sunsets
a night sky unlike anything they've even imagined--
A fifth generation falls in love with Tweedy.
