Despite many, many delays, we got the kids to Catamut for their first visit to Goblin. Climbing a ladder with an almost two year old strapped to your back is entertaining, though nerve wracking. Kins was a good sport about it. Good thing Owen is old enough to climb on his own.
It’s ridiculous how much stuff one house can accumulate. I’m blaming the house, it’s easier than admitting that 12+ years of 2 packrats and 2 kids living in the same place have expanded to fill every bit of the available space. New furniture comes in and the old never seems to go out. It just makes its way into less and less visible areas of the house. Hobbies are started, grow, and we’re sure will one day be returned to. Projects are completed and leftovers are saved “just in case.” One way or another, things pile up.
