We’ve had text book pick up days.
(Yes, it’s a thing.)
Checks to write.
In the midst of it, we took off for my parent’s house for a VERY ABBREVIATED (thanks to the above list) Camp Indiana.
Yesterday and today the girls started school.
|McDaniel pointing and laughing at Ellie who had to start|
school an entire day earlier than her.
|We’ve been walking them to school since|
|Waiting to pick up Ellie from school.|
I don’t know how the flag figured in but McDaniel
felt the need to wave it out of the sun roof until Ellie
got into the car.
|Claire and McDaniel. |
Neighbors and buddies since diapers.
Just a week ago, we were doing fun things like this at Camp Indiana:
|McDaniel playing basketball at my old elementary school|
with a corn field across the street.
|Ellie not mowing the grass but just driving |
the mower around. For fun.
This year they added a 9-hole miniature golf course--right by the chickens.
|McDaniel and Ellie posing by the miniature horse named Meg. |
You can’t tell by this picture but she was having a bad hair day.
|Noah the llama wouldn’t look at us. Seriously pouting about something.|
I just realized that today is Nigel’s birthday.
And terribly excited about it.
So I hope to get back to some sort of routine soon.
Today, I’m filling in the calendar with too many things,
taking a much needed deep breath
and enjoying a wonderfully quiet house
all. by. myself.
