We took this photo when our home was all new to us. In some ways, I feel like we’ve only just arrived but, as you can see from how young the kids are, we’ve been here for a while now. It’s a pretty much perfect house, especially now that it has solar panels,. evaporative cooling, blinds, and the floors are level and stable.
Nicky found this vehicle for $50 on eBay, and it barely fitted in our station wagon at the time. I managed to snap the steering wheel of shortly after we took this photo, but this billy cart served Finn and Leila well in the time we had it.
I didn’t have a lot of hair to give, but I figured that I should do my part, sacrificing beard and getting my head shaved. Didn’t raise much money this time, which was something of a shame.
