Elmwood, again

me and micha

I just got back from another 10 day trip to Elmwood, this time with all four of us wonderfully kooky Merricks.

Dad gave me an old tripod, so we had fun with taking family pictures. Micha and I made some flower crowns and goofed off in the field behind the house. The goldenrod was blooming and looking back on it, really and truly, I've never felt so lucky in my whole long life.

  2. In addition to being wonderfully kooky, you Merricks really have a crazy lovely gene pool.

  5. I'd play with this one in PhotoShop, if I were you. Make it sepia toned and slightly fuzzy. Magic.

  16. goldenrod gallivanting! us stockman sisters would cotton well to you merricks, methinks. just wondering, was there, in the merrick household, an unwavering devotion to anne of green gables, laura ingalls wilder, and the march sisters? bets are on a emphatic *yes.*
