digging--it's all in the family

we rather often tease sabin's father that he's obviously happiest when he's digging. he has transported vast quantities of our lawn from one side of the yard to the other. he has dug out foundations by hand. he has terraced bits of the hill behind our house--all by hand. he is a digging maniac. he would make a great prairie dog (they dig a lot, don't they?). and this weekend, sabin and her big sisters proved beyond a doubt that they are indeed his children (as if anyone doubted it, since they all look exactly like him.) he was so pleased, he came running in for the camera, so these pictures are taken by him.
sabin and karoline are working on creating a new flower bed where they can plant whatever they want.

addie, is there anything you or your brothers do that convinces people that your parents are your parents? :-)

just a quick note for addie: i'm traveling this week, so if we're not responding properly to posts, that's why. the blog is something sabin and i do together and she's home alone with far this week and he's just not very bloggy. we'll read everything and comment properly on friday! :-) she's gonna love your weekend post! :-)
