Tree Climbing

 We stopped to visit the Martin's on our way back to Nondalton.  The kids decided to climb trees in their front yard.

 Caleb did quite well, but he was a little too short to make it up.

 Quentin, on the other hand, was a little too tall.  He couldn't quite fit between the trees to leverage himself up.
Joshua got a ways up, but couldn't quite reach.
 Anna has always been an avid and able tree climber.  I don't see her out climbing trees nearly as often as I used too, but the temptation to show the boys how it's done was just too great...

 She gracefully shinnied up the tree in no time flat.

 Inspired, Joshua stretched like he didn't know he could, and made it up beside her.
 And then past her as he was able to use her as a ladder.

Looks like so much fun! So glad to see you posting again--I hope your family is enjoying Sukkhot!

Also by the way, the dates on your last few posts are messed up--they're listing as April and May but you just posted them!

Thanks Ashleigh, we are having a great Sukkot so far. Definitely Alaska style, it started snowing today.
I was so far behind in my posting that I intentionally changed the dates to be closer to the time they actually happened. I got in trouble a few years ago for posting my Sukkot blog in December. I got chastised for celebrating Sukkot at Christmas!
Hag Sameach!!
Shalom from Alaska,

Hahaha! That makes sense!

Glad to hear you've been having a good Sukkhot! I don't envy the snow at all though. Related question, what do you use for the Four Species? We just use the standard Talmudic interpretation, but I know they aren't specified very clearly in Leviticus so I was curious to know what you did.
