Olivia’s Dream Comes True

We stopped by to see Ren, again, and wouldn’t you know, she’s got a shelf packed with books. Talk about  happy little orples. Ever since the orples learned to read (Book 3 in the orple series), she’s been a learning machine. While Oscar finishes reading Brides, my trio revolving around the Sanderson family saga, Olivia is going to explore Ren’s collection of reading materials.

There is no such thing as too many book when you are a curious orple.

Seeings how we’ve temporarily lost the orple’s attention, we may as well stroll through the neighborhood and see what our neighbors are up to. If you’d like to join our Orple Adventures, please let me know. To read what we’re up to, click the article titles and leave whatever comments you might care to leave.  Enjoy your excursions through Orpleland. We do love company.

[New post] The Daily Post . Achievement

I just fell into the coolest blog, traveling around in Orpleland.  If you are not familiar with Sylvia’s blog, anotherdayinparadise, then let me introduce you to her granddaughter, Tamsyn, and her achievements. How she and Oscar don’t break their necks, or pull a muscle (a twig, in Oscar’s case), is beyond me.

That looks like it might hurt. Ah, to be so lithe. :)

Olivia is smart, sitting this one out. While the kids are playing, feel free to check out what the rest of us are up to as we visit the neighbors. Let me know if you want to play. 🙂  This post will come up first, so keep toggling down. To open an individual topic, should you like to leave a comment, just click the title.

[New post] Photography 101, Weekend Two: Play With Light

Say ‘Thank You, Dolly’, for providing a photograph for this challenge. While Dolly (allaboutlemon.com) is playing with lighting effects, the orples and I are swimming in the Red Sea.

These two will swim anywhere. Olivia, being a lady, didn’t want to start without her hostess, but Oscar didn’t want to wait. I think we should go visit the neighbors until Dolly shows up to swim with us. If anyone else would like to come along, let me know and I’ll add your name to my ‘to go list’. Remember when you go into the archives from here, this will be the first post you see, so please keep toggling down to see what comes next.
