Photo-a-Day: Bus

Today was the kindergarten bus orientation at Sophie's new school. Tomorrow we go back to the school to meet her new teacher.
School starts in two weeks, and while the kids are, understandably, a bit nervous, I am excited for them to start this new adventure and meet new friends.

Photo-a-Day "wild"

Tonight I am making a broccoli and cheddar quiche for dinner, with spinach salad and blueberry muffins, incorporating local heirloom breed eggs, and the last of the wild blueberries we picked while camping in Maine a few weeks ago.

What's on your menu tonight?

Photo-a-Day "simple"

Some people might think it isn't very simple to make your own drapes, but for me, it's easier than dragging my kids around from store to store in search of the perfect drapes that I probably wouldn't find anyway.

Today's photo is supposed to be "spoon", but I thought Henry's choice of outfit today would make for a more entertaining post.

Photo-a-Day: "messy"

This house that we bought in Massachusetts is one of the nicer ones we looked at, but it still has a glaring flaw that several homes we looked at have: the laundry is located in a closet in the main floor half bathroom. You know, the one guests use when they come to visit. I guess I should be happy I have that extra half bathroom, but if I could, I think I would move the laundry down to the basement. Not a perfect solution, but better than seeing this every time I walk past:

Photo-a-Day: 8 o'clock

Yes, I'm behind. What else is new?

This photo probably illustrates best why I'm behind... This happened at just about 8am this morning.

Photo A Day - August "outside" and "one"

A few days ago my sister pinned a list for a photo-a-day, and I hadn't been on pinterest (follow me, I'm wifeoferp) in a couple of days, so I didn't see it until yesterday (that is what reading a good book does to you!)

So I'm a little late, but I'll post the first two here, and then continue with number three later in the day.

We were foiled by the wacky library hours once again, so our consolation prize was a trip to Kimball Farms for ice cream. Henry and I shared my favorite flavor: Cherry Vanilla Chip.  yum!

Henry is adorable.  I'm sorry, but he just is.  I wish everyone could have a Henry.  On the path back to the car, I was walking a few steps ahead of him, and every time I turned around, he would look up at me with a huge grin.  And every time we would pass someone else along the path, he would tell them hi.  It was very endearing.
