Up until this point I haven’t written much about my host family, who taught me so much about organic agricultural practices, ensured I was fed, etc. Most of all, it was nice being around their company. The kids in particular were quite an energetic bunch (Teagan, Joe, Theo, Sam and Faith. Sadly, I wasn’t able to take a photo of Faith.)
Sam was the most adorable baby. The thing is, he cried a lot. When we went to Vancouver, I looked after him for a bit while he was napping. When he woke up, he wouldn’t stop crying no matter what I did. He calmed down when Danielle came back, though. Despite that, I still thought he was a cute little guy, and this is my favorite photo of him.
This is another one of my favorite photos, and it’s of Theo. I tasted rainier cherries for the first time at the Sedro Woolley Farmers market, and I had some at the time this photo was taken. Theo wanted some, too, and held his hands out just like that to ask for some. I told him to stay posing like that so I could snap a photo. Then I gave him some cherries.
