Not that it's anything blog-shattering!
I often feel like blogging or have the thoughts/ words to put down during the day but when naptime and bedtime come around? My brain turns to mush. Such is life right now.
Anyways, today is Heidi's 3rd birthday! I'll write her a post (hopefully not too much) later.
A couple of weeks ago we were seeing lots of humming birds around the feeder and flowers in our backyard. I never thought I'd catch a photo of one but one day this cute little fella perched on a hosta stem for a minute or two. And the same thing happened the next day- I've never seen one at rest for so long! They are fascinating creatures.
Additionally (on the nature front), I was passing a neighbor's yard last week and could not believe how many deer there were! I counted ten in all. We see three or four, maybe six now and then but never this many!
I do have a *slightly* irrational fear that someday I'll startle some I'm driving by and they'll bolt towards the road, totaling our mini van in their mad dash. Hopefully it's a very irrational fear.
School has started!
We're getting back into the swing of school and finding our routines.
Evie has joined the ranks of the big kids in 1st grade:
and Audrey is in pre-K at the same school.
Heidi started Catechesis of the Good Shepherd this week at a local Montessori school, and so far so good for all the girls!
I have to share with you these leggings of Heidi's:
G.K. Chesterton leggings! I was ecstatic to win them in a giveaway because I really wanted a pair for her when I saw them. Only once has someone tried to guess the depiction when we're out and about, annnd they told me they'd never heard of him. Who knows, maybe they'll read up about him. ;)
I think it was about this time last year that the BIG thing on social media was listing three fictional characters that describe you. I had fun looking at everyone's combos but couldn't come up with three I felt were accurate for myself. Until now. Behold:
Joe from Return to Me | Ouiser from Steel Magnolias | Mrs. Hammond from Anne of Green Gables
If the shoe fits...
September has been SO beautiful and sunny and warm/hot- I am soaking up every second! It is blissful not to have to worry about layers and boots for all the girls just yet.
Cheers to September. :)
