Some Sentences

Summer is winding down.
I look forward to fall.  I think when you live in northern climates, fall is so gorgeous one can't help but look forward to it.
I look forward to the seasons wherein my flabby arms are covered by long sleeves and the sweating in unseemly places has ceased.
Linnea, Isaiah, and Andrew were each able to go to Bible Camp this summer.  Andrew is there this week and we pick him up tomorrow.  We were blessed with scholarships to make that possible.
Abram is 3 1/2 months old now.  He smiles ALL. THE. TIME.  Except when he doesn't.
I took Linnea and all the younger kids to the lake yesterday for the first time this summer.  We typically go once a week or more, so this summer has been very different.  Elizabeth is a little FISH---no fear.  Mama had some fear.
Christopher and Elijah are going to go play board games with Grandma Harriet this afternoon.  They love to do that!  I have little patience for playing or teaching board games and card games, so this is double fun for them--they get some time away for "just them" and they get to play games.  And no one is running off with or eating the pieces!  (at least not that I know of...)
Ruby and Elijah will both be in a wedding at the end of this month.  We talk about that event pretty much every day.
Maybe this kind of thing only happens with my toddlers, but now that Elizabeth can say "Daddy" (and did so probably 25 times so that I was SURE of it before posting it on facebook and on my blog), she won't say it on command by request.  She will, however, smile and shake her head no.
I've started walking again.  (I didn't really ever stop walking, what I mean is walking for exercise.)  I'm up to three miles per day. I like this.
I have the cabbage in the crockpot for supper.  This recipe from my friend Dawn is super yummy and super easy:  one head of cabbage, cut into chunks.  One pound (or more) of cooked ground beef/pork.  One jar of spaghetti sauce. Cook all day on low.  Serve over noodles or rice.  Boom.
I don't typically use trendy language much so I hope that was an appropriate use of the word boom.
Ivy pronounces computer "dumputer."
Plans for today include laundry, cooking, and cleaning.  Just like all the other 354 days of the year.

The end.


  1. I look forward to and value reading your thoughts and posts. Thanks!

  2. BOOM! I love that. You're awesome. Might have to try that recipe!
