This weekend we won one soccer game and lost another. Enjoyed roasting marshmallows and soaking up warm but sometimes rainy weather. We also carved pumpkins and spent time in the backyard.
Cooler temperatures, jeans, jackets in the morning-there was a special nip in the air today. This evening the girls came in from the backyard and requested scissors and a jar. They meticulously cut every flower and pulled every ripe tomato from the vine. I do believe they are rolling out the red carpet for Autumn.
Saturday morning we got up bright and early and checked out some yard sales. We didn’t have much luck so we decided to hit up two of our favorite thrift stores. First we went to St. Vincent de Paul on Beechmont Avenue where the girls scored lots of good books. While there I debated back and forth over a cute chair that was really cheap, but in the end I passed because I wasn’t sure where I would put it. Then we went to Goodwill in Oakley. Again, the girls both found some books and this time Blackburn did too. Ben and I bought some cds. Our next stop was Lowes to pick out paint for Isabella’s room. It didn’t take too long for her to settle on a color so we went outside to the gardening area. There were several plants on sale for $3.00 a piece. Isabella picked out a Creopsis with bright yellow flowers, Vita chose a pink Dianthus, Blackburn got a flat of strawberry plants (of course), Ben picked a Clematis and I chose some Scotch Moss. I can’t wait to plant them.
Isabella lost a tooth right before bed…
First coat of paint is on the walls and ceiling in Isabella’s room.
Hope to show you more soon!
Today was a long day and I am hoping to get us all in bed early tonight…by early, I mean before midnight. Blackburn and I took our evening stroll in the backyard and we took pictures of a couple of things that caught our eye.
Now we are snacking on blueberries, finishing up baths and heading to bed. Tomorrow I want to tell you about the newest member of our family. It has whiskers, hops and is the sweetest little thing.
