If you read this, you might get lost in there. There's no order to this, whatsoever.

Seriously. It's not like a cornfield, where you can just keep walking one way, and you'll eventually get out. Really, you may not want to start reading this at all. Not even sure if it makes sense...but I did get an A+ from the spell checker, so, I'm satisfied.

I've been busy enjoying the last couple weeks of summer with my kids, before school starts, taking a break from the regular routine, and instead smelling the grass, going shopping for fun, and watching in amazement as Grace removes one wiggly tooth after another. The child is going to need me to run her apples through the food processor before we know it. My word.

I'm in super-planning mode, creating lesson plans for our entire first semester (used to do it for each quarter), so I can sit back and enjoy the ride through December. It's extremely fun, and I'm super-charged with enthusiasm and energy to get started on a new year. My kids are having fun with their "total freedom" of schedule for the moment, but after three days, Grace was already asking if we could get some "school books" from the library, and Patience dearly misses the school room. I told them no. School Room is off-limits. (This only increases the anticipation to get back in, you know.) But, I'm thrilled that they're going to be happy to get back to school. In the meantime, I'm surrounded by books and notebooks and planning sheets and I've got the Voyage of Discovery, the Mayflower, and all other American history through the signing of the Declaration on the brain, and it's swimming in there with awesome books to read about all kinds of things, and that stuff is chilling in there with Emily Dickinson, Robert Louis Stevenson, Vivaldi, Gershwin, Picasso and Cassatt. Not to mention all the science lessons I haven't decided on yet- but, OH, will they be good. I love school.

I've had the perfect amount of photography work this week, Praise God, and can't wait to see what's next.

Hudson fell twice this week, once off the family room couch onto the hard wood floor, once down the stairs at the Pavilion, both times hitting the SAME spot on his head, bless his heart. He's got twice the bump, but seems no worse for the wear...

I'd happily take a weekend away with my man, but let's face it, it's not going to happen.

The sky was so gorgeous yesterday, it made me glad down deep that I know the One who made it.

And I just haven't been giving this blog much love.

I WILL show the love soon...after all the lesson planning business. Really. Maybe. No. I will.

Your life sounds so busy and wonderful all at the same time. I don't know how you do it, but I think your family is truly blessed to have you!

Hope you have a wonderful start to your school year. And I loved all the kitty and chicken pictures. When I lived at home, we had over 15 cats at one time! They can be a handful, but they are always oh so cute:)
