open house, visitors, and some sewing

still playing catch up here.
on the agenda for next week....our siesta key pictures!!

first up: open house
here's one very happy boy taking in all the newness of his classroom.

it didn't take him long to take up with the girls and start playing.
good thing because he only has one other boy in his class!

still trying to absorb it all.

loving his new playground,
but ready to get off....feeling a little dizzy.

next up: visitors
this family hangs around here at some point most days.
and i love them eating all the bugs.
but, when they take flight and start talking, it's quite the noise.
the first few times, it caught me off guard.
now it's just another familiar sound here at home.

and the human variety!
mom brought grandmama jo over for a visit.
before heading off to lunch, august wanted gran to read a story.
so much love sitting on that couch.

last up: sewing
we weren't able to make it to heagan's tutu party,
and i know we missed lots of fun.
in keeping with her theme,
i took this monkey towel and added some spunk (to match the birthday girl!).

and i think those monkeys sure do like their new tutu's.

this one reminds me of her bathing suit that i just adore.

so fun and easy.

there are some other sewing projects and craftiness to share.
just one of the many reasons this blog has been neglected!


silly sleeper

lately this girl has been caught sleeping in some pretty silly and sweet ways.

her brother used to kick back in the corner of his bed too.

this just makes me want to eat her up!


first day of school

my big boy started school on monday.
earlier in the summer he was a little worried about starting at a new school.
but once he decided that the playground might be as big as a monster,
and he could stay for lunch and nap time, he was pretty excited about his new school.

posing and ready for the big day.

last year he insisted on taking a picture of mama and daddy.
this year was no different.

looking way too grown up here.

with mrs. norris, and pumped for the day ahead.

he had such a great first day!

then on day 2, he got sick.
daddy had to pick him up because mama was in winter haven with a sick baby sister.
but, the day brightened up with his new backpack and lunch box finally arriving.

so begins day 3 with his new gear.

mostly done with the day and no call to pick up him up.
here's to a better feeling tummy and some much needed blogging time for mama.

more of our summer fun to come!
