It's me again! I bet you thought I forgot the password to my blog account or something!! No, I've just been very very busy. :o)
We just got back from a week-long trip to southern Colorado/northern New Mexico. As you can imagine, it takes a lot of prep work to pull that off. So I was busy the week before the trip…then gone for a week…and now busy AFTER the trip as well. There is a mountain of laundry to do, and we technically did not take off any school so I've been trying to cram in 5 days of schooling into just 3 days…for 2 weeks in a row.
I am still thinking happy thoughts about the wonderful summer we had. Here are some more pics:
|Hillsboro Airshow…in our back yard! It's so fun to yell out,|
"Everyone come outside, quick!" Those fun little moments
all add up to one great childhood, I hope.
|Birdwatching is another reason everyone runs|
outside, or to a window at least.
|What we thought was an ornamental plum tree|
actually produces edible fruit! (small ones)
|The kids love running out and snacking.|
|We also made some of our own treats, like|
these Mexican chocolate pops.
|Oh, we got a package in the mail!!|
|Gemma still loves it when "workers" come to|
our house. She is NOT shy.
