~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life. ~
Here is a peek at one of the headboards for the older girls new bunk bed. So pretty!
The girls were so excited to move into the bunk beds and Rose was also very happy to have her very own big girl bed! We went to the store last weekend and she helped pick out a new quilt for Twinkle Toes' old bed. Plenty of pink and covered with little roses, it is perfect for her!
I've never been very good at gardening...
This year our garden is doing much better than last, but we still have so much to learn.
I have a feeling that whatever this random plant that grew in one of our raised beds (from seeds in the compost?) probably didn't need the tomato cage despite the little curly things (tendrils, according to google) that seemed to want to climb... Do I leave it where it is and if so do those (
melons? spaghetti squash!) need more support?
... and check out our compost. Whatever is growing there is doing better than the rest of the garden!
Oh, how I am missing this oldest boy of ours!
Captain left for a boys camp on Monday morning and will be home again on Friday. This is his first time attending a summer camp, other than camping with our whole family. He has spent the night away from home a few times for various reasons, but always with at least a brother or two.
Actually, this week has been the hardest on Rascal, who has never been away from his older brother overnight. (Except for one night when he was 9 months old, when we left Captain with my parents for an overnight trip to the coast on our anniversary. Actually, he didn't do well with the separation that night either.) Rascal is definitely my hardest worker and on Monday he spent the day cleaning out the van, mopping the floors, doing dishes, and any other random job that he could think of to help me. He said that "If I stay really busy the week will go by faster." Awwww... The afternoon at the Science Museum with friends yesterday helped, and the week is already more than half over! Captain will be coming home tomorrow! All his siblings are making cards and little handmade gifts to surprise him with when he gets home. He has been missed!
