I posted my other kiddos earlier in the month with these side by side comparisons. The CD with the supposed photo image of Gareth was blank several times. I finally got a CD with an image on it and now am posting the 3rd grade comparison. I think we look ALOT alike. We have the same squinty eyes, same pouches under our eyes, same sprinkling of freckles on our nose and cheeks, similar noses, and our mouths have an uneven smile on the bottom lip - mine is on MY left and Gareth on the right. I think 3rd grade is the peak time to have the horse teeth look - when our grown up teeth that are coming in doesn't quite fit in our mouths/smaller heads.
When I was younger, I would find random, straight, strong pieces of metal. I always wondered where they came from. They were awesome to squeeze curve between my thumb and pointer finger and make them spring out out of my hand, flying away, and finally hearing it cling to the ground. It was not till I was an adult that I figured out that it was the steel brushes that twirl around on the street cleaner truck. I guess they occasionally break off. Thanks for the entertainment! ;)
Hello from Brian, Carla, Gareth, Zane, and Iris. We live in rural east central, IL on 10 acres. Brian works as a web programmer and Carla currently is a SAHM, used to do social work type stuff.
We have 2 sons, Gareth and Zane and 1 daughter, Iris. We have 4 cats and chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl.
This blog is mostly for friends and family to see what is happening in our lives and to serve as an online scrapbook. Come share in our adventures of raising 3 kids that were born within 2.5 years of each other and moving to the country as of June 2009 to live on 10 acres. Our plan is to fix up the old farm house, live in it a few years, and start building a new home further back on the property.
We are interested in gardening, beekeeping, sustainable living, attachment parenting, and secular humanism.
