Unearthed: the newest member of our family

Vanessa and I want to introduce you to Levon Samur Marr. You say it like Leevon, but we didn't like that spelling. Our boy was born on February 3rd, weighing a svelte seven and six.

Our comfortable, wonderful home birth woudn't have been possible without a few people providing some crucial elements. Jeanette, Laura and Steph at Born Naturally Midwifery Services for the you know what. Kathryn and Christian Hluchy for the home. Alex Ess and Jenny Em for the kind of doula support that could only have come from a big sister and a dear friend. Veronica Samur for being a source of calm no matter what. And all the rest who provided advice, gifts, meals, visits, and support for this baby so far. We really appreciate it.

Winnowing Season

It's too cold around the farm to do much more than winnow the cranberry beans we saved from last year's shelling bean crop. Pictured: Kristie, our newest helper, and beans.
