Has it really been 6 months?

Oh, yes it has. I don’t know why I have such a hard time keeping Ashmore Adventures up to date. It’s not like I don’t have the pictures to share, although I do like to process them before uploading them, and that can take some time. Lots has happened in the past half year. Amelia had her last days of Preschool and a gymnastics finale. She played t-ball and summer soccer. We enjoyed summer with lots of swimming, visiting with friends and family and hiking. We traveled to Maryland and Cape Cod. Our chickens grew up and started laying eggs. Artie finished building the chicken coop (pretty much, anyway). Amelia turned 5 years old and soon after started Kindergarten. We did lots of fall camping which included a moose hunt, partridge hunting and exploring “up North”. Oh, and we found out that we’re expecting! A new little Ashmore is due in February 2015.

You’ll find a sampling of photos from the past 6 months here and I will do my best to add more regularly in the future! Thank you for sticking around.
