So since I’ve been out of touch for so long again, I’m taking a break from my usual lengthy prose and just posting the highlights (with pics, of course). 🙂  I have way more than this, but I need to start somewhere.

  • My sweet Connor turned 7 years old on Sept. 24, and we had a family celebration for him.  This included a trip to the movie theater, dinner out, ice cream cake and presents at home.

Toy of choice these days: Lego Ninjago!

Happy 7th Birthday, buddy!

  • We planted a square foot garden in our backyard.  We planted carrots, kale, radishes, broccoli, and lettuce from seed.  We also bought small bok choy plants and planted green onion bulbs.  Hopefully some day soon I can post pictures of a bountiful harvest!

Special soil: Compost, vermiculite, and peat moss

I helped mix the soil, but Tim and Ty did most of the work.

Helper #1

The rest of the help

  • We got a brand new range/oven because our old one broke.  I love the new one, and it’s super fun to have a completely clean oven (at least for now).

Tim had to do some demolition in order for the new oven to fit. Good job, honey!

The oven shelves actually gleam...I'm enjoying it while it lasts 🙂

  • October field trip with our homeschool subgroup to Kanapaha Botanical Garden.

The three beans

  • Connor learned how to hula hoop.

He asked me how much he would get paid as a professional hula hooper...oh dear.
