Pastimes


Gamma and Delta are enjoying winter break, this shot taken on a recent day trip.

 

It’s a bit odd having everyone back in the house; with Alpha gone to college most of the time, the dynamics just aren’t the same.  Beta, of course, is now fully accustomed to being the eldest in residence… but she’s usually out of the house more than in, between school activities and working.

Even now with everyone together, the elder two prefer to make their own plans more often than not.  Part of growing up, I suppose.  Even so, it’s nice to have them all together at least for meals.

With each year that goes by, I appreciate more and more that the younger two are exceptionally close, as much like friends as siblings.  We have a great deal of fun with them.

    Heh. Yeah, our youngest (coincedentally also our oldest) skied Copper Mtn. a couple of weeks ago. Now back in St. Louis, she’s been out and about as much as in (well, while she’s been awake). The second day she was back in town, she came home at 3:30 AM.

    I like my daughter as an adult. S’all good.

    Oh yeah–ditto Punk HP on the helmet thing.
