My parents came up for a visit, bearing gifts of food and other good stuff like they always do. That bag Patrick is holding tight contained 2 new schools outfits for him. Did I tell you he is going to go to our school's little 3 year old preschool program? It was a tough decision for me and deserves a post all its own. It is only for a few hours a week, but he thinks he is a big shot and can't wait to go. He carried that bag with him all day.
A Lego city. A very much needed late summer project that kept a few boys busy.
I was a terrible cook this summer, but I am now on a mission to try lots of new recipes. So far, so good. I have intentions to share them all of course, but you know how intentions go.
My purse filled with popcorn because the movie-theater popcorn has something in it that gives me a migraine, no kidding, every time I eat it, I get one.
I saw The Help. It is SO good! I had low expectations-I wasn't thrilled when I saw the trailer. It was so well done, and very true to the book, and I cried at the end, didn't you? And in the middle too, at least a few times.
Lovely sunflowers, thanks Mom.
First day of school, new Ipad for Isaac. It's like Christmas all over again. I hope these schools know what they are doing, embracing technology and all, because I could rail on against it for hours like the old fogey I am.
This game is called "Do A Flip Over Patrick". Oh boy.
We have not had rain for ages. Mini earthquakes for the ants.
Thank you Aunt Elizabeth for the hand-me-downs. Someone LOVES them...and I do too.
And last, but certainly not least, Abbey spending time in her room, making all her notebooks, binders, and folders look cute for high school. High school! How did that happen? She is loving it.
