Two good books I've read this summer. I loved Gracelin O'Mally and just requested another Ann Moore book, Leaving Ireland. The Yonahlossee book is a little racy at times, but it is a really well-told story, with great characters I loved. I stormed through both books in a couple days each, they were both so compelling.
Really, really good.
At the park one day.
Jeff's birthday. We celebrated with cake and t-ball game.
T-ball-we made it!
Abbey and her friends at the game.
Abbey's back to school shopping trip-she went with friends, which is a little sad for me since we loved to do this together, but she knows what she needs, and knows what she likes, and with strict instructions to not go crazy, she picked out things I loved too.... white notebooks, white binders...everything matching, lots of index cards....and she uses them-look at that stack from last year!
After dinner, the boys usually run out to the trampoline.
These next four weeks I have four birthday to celebrate in our family (Jeff, Andrew, Janey, Abbey), our 20th anniversary, and three different school start dates, along with all those orientations and meetings, and long supply lists (which I tackled last week).
