I found this wagon on Craigslist! I drove up to Shelburne Falls to get it. We plan to use it for pulling watering cans across the street to the garden. (When Maya and Ella aren't riding in there.)
Sometimes a tub of water is so inviting that you forget to take your clothes off before getting in.
And if you're Maya, you have to copy your sister.
The main focus of this week, besides the garden, was the Willow Street house. We are moving along in the process of buying it, but it's gotten more stressful and since this house-buying-thing has been added to the mix, we've been feeling like there is just too much going on in our lives right now. It's hard to look at the big picture when we are feeling swamped and pulled in many different directions at once.
Brett and I had this conversation over dinner one evening. I think it pretty much sums up how we've been feeling this week.
J: "Every day I think to myself, 'Tonight, I'm going to really DO something, like tackle a big garden project or spend a large chunk of time working on the blog.' But then, every evening I'm exhausted and I just go to bed! I must be doing something wrong here."
B: "Did you set the setting for two kids instead of one?"
We did accomplish a visit to the house one afternoon while Kathy stayed with Maya and Ella. We got to explore down by the river, look inside for the first time together and take some more pictures.

On Thursday night, the babies woke up a lot. For the rest of the week, we were all fighting off a little cold. Sometimes, things just aren't easy and smooth.
One morning we were reading books in the girls' room and Maya snuggled up and fell asleep.
