We all worked to organize some toys and get rid of a bunch of things and move things to attic storage, but we all had a lot of fun playing with the baby toys.

Night on the Lake

We went out on Lake Grapevine with our friends, the Barlows. Everything was beautiful until the rope got stuck on the prop, melted onto it, we had no knife on board to cut it, finally called 911, then a boater stopped and had a small dull pocket knife, then I managed to swim under and saw off the ends of the rope, and we made it back in.

They all just want to sleep

Every single summer day Owen awoke with the sun ready to go. He'd drag me out of bed every morning. Now, just 3 days into the school year he sleeps in like a champ and I am dragging him out of bed every morning. Can someone explain psycho-somatic sleep?

Gathering Seeds

Sometimes the strangest things evoke memories- I decided to go collect a few seeds for my basil plant. As I was doing it I immediately recalled collecting Marigold seeds in much the same way with my mother as a three or four-year-old in Michigan. Clear as day I could see us breaking apart the dried flower and putting the seeds into a plastic baggy.
