Midweek Wonders

The highlight of my childhood was making my brother laugh so hard that food came out his nose. ~Garrison Keillor

Tyrone, one of our 2nd graders, got a four wheeler this week and has been terrorizing the village ever since. Here is a great pic of him chauferring his 2 younger brothers (clinging for dear life, I'm sure) all around. Right after I snapped this pic he kindly offered to give me ride to the clinic to get my 'nose poked'. They were testing for the pneumo virus at the clinic this week and giving anyone who let them swab their nose $25. I declined the ride offer mostly because I obviously would have had to ride on the handle bars and I didn't trust Tyrone's driving even with no visual obstructions. Never did make it to the clinic, oh well.

This just in! Molly learning to ride a two wheeler caught on camera. Dad helping her along.

Some of the kiddos summit what is left of a snow hill after our 40 degree Sunday!

Our pack o pups in a mad dash to mark their territory when we finally arrived at the Arolik River. It was the halfway point of our 8 mile expedition on Saturday.

And that's the latest from Quinhagak, Alaska somewhere on the Bering Sea.

Good Night Everybody.
(It's broad daylight but we are still going to bed. I put 2 blankets over my window. At least it has the appearance of darkness).
