One of the reasons that fall is so busy is that this little nut has a birthday!


She’s not so little anymore though.  For some reason I think that being 8 years old is this magic number when she can start doing things on her own. I can remember being 8, so maybe I’m remembering what I did.  Either way, we are here.

She’s creative, fun, and thoughtful, and I can’t wait to see what she’ll accomplish this year.


I hate to ask, but

Is there anyone out there who is not selling Innisbrook wrapping paper this year?  If you would like to buy something to support Prince of Peace school, please check out all they have to offer. You can order online, or send me your order.  Thanks!!

We have 2 playing soccer this fall.  Ellie has been dying to play ever since Samantha started two years ago.  Mean ol mom wasn’t ready for it though.  They are both doing well so far.  Ellie took some adjustment to having a late night practice after a full day of school, but otherwise, she can run with the best of them.  Samantha and her teammates are finally using some basic skills that the coaches have been hammering in for years now.  She can dribble!

I would advise you all to check manufacturer recalls on your appliances.  Our refrigerator was recalled in 2009, prior to us buying the house in 2011.  It was recalled due to fire hazard.  Yep.  I can understand that.  And let me tell you, when there is smoke in your house, the fridge is not the first place one would think to find the fire.

Brian and I hung out on the driveway and watched the eclipse.  It was a nice evening, and I thoroughly enjoyed gazing up at the sky with our camera.  Happy Anniversary Brian!
