We've been a little crafty, around here, as it's been such a wet, stormy (and very beautiful!) June.
|A hat for the new baby. The wool is actually a delicious mossy, licheny green. Perfect for a September baby.|
We're taking suggestions for boys' names. Girl's names are covered for the next dozen or so daughters. But if we have another boy, Will and I will have to go on silent retreat, to secluded monasteries, on a remote mountain (mmmmm, that doesn't sound too bad!) to pray for a divine message.
We can't even agree on a common genre. He likes names that are difficult to spell and pronounce and have a romantic history in Gaelic or Norse mythology.
I like names you could give a dog: Charlie, Hank, or Sam.
You see our dilemma? All suggestions are welcome.
So far, friends and family have helped us out with: Oisin (pronounced "O-sheen") Kieren, Wolfric, Lavrans (from Kristin Lavransdatter—tempting!) Grimbjorn (less tempting) Emmet
The boys like Henry, Thomas, and Picklehead (or Poopface, take your pick)

Unrelated, check out the lovely outdoor crafting by this beautiful blogging family. I can't read a word of Finnish (can you?) but scroll down to see hobby horses and a totally rad tent.
Sorry about my ridiculous, over-sized photos. There's nothing between large (too small) and extra-large (too big). I'll figure it out one of these days.
