This is his birthday top (a TARDIS hooded cotton vest) and the new family kitten, Pepper.

On his 8th birthday

Loves reading, and has really gotten going on his own, especially with these Treehouse books.

Helping put up the new chicken coop :) 

Modelling mum's knitting, with the usual poise and professionalism :) 

Summer lunch

Feeding the sheep, by weighting down the branches of the purple wattle. 

Taking care of a rejected lamb for a bit, until the ewe felt better.  

First day the new chickens were out and about.

This is the year Byron turns seven, and now his blog is an annual thing. Hard to keep up with these, as you might see from the post date :)
