This is Hamilton playing his recorder on PTA day at Harmons. I'm holding the camera and my hands shake...sorry. I wouldn't be me if my hands didn't tremor.

Hamilton memorized all his songs so he didn't have to look at the music. That's why he's standing up. This song was his favorite one. When they were finished with their recorders they sang and danced. That video is on the other camera and the files are too big to upload to the blog. But they are really fun.

Good job Hamilton!


One day last week I stopped by the house in midday. I noticed the door to the spare bedroom was mostly closed and the curtain was drawn. It looked like someone had deliberately created a peaceful atmosphere. I crept up to the door and looked in. What you see in the picture above is what I saw.

Apparently Isaac had tucked him in before he went to school. Ra says Sammie stayed there most of the day. Even while I was home taking pictures of him and having lunch he never woke up.

He's our spoiled ball of fur!

WATCH THIS...we love this. The reason we love this is because science and spirit come together in discovery. You will find really great stuff on!
