Last Sunday, we picked up Tim's Mom at the airport. Since then we've shopped, celebrated C's birthday, and had a couple of school days. Today, we are going to the Mall of America to the American Girl Store. Oh yeah, for me. I really don't like that place!!
On Labor Day, my MIL wanted to shop for birthday presents for C and clothes for the girls. We shopped, and shopped, and shopped. Frankly, shopping isn't my favorite thing to do these days but the girls had fun and got lots of really cute clothes.
Um - no, I did not take pictures on C's birthday so these flowers will have to suffice.
When my parents were here the weekend before last, my Mom and I wandered around the yard and I shot these photos. We also went on a bird walk that weekend. I did take pictures of that and you can see them on my homeschool blog.
I suppose you might wonder what I did during the month of August when I only occasionally posted photos and no journalling. Mostly we focused on school and preserving produce from the garden.
School for the public school children started on C's birthday. It was weird to be shopping with Gram and the girls and not to see any children.
The only other notable thing in August that wasn't shared here was the discovery of this guy on the faucet nozzle under the deck. He was terribly cute and fascinating.
I just love how marigolds look as if they were quilled. :)
