Wow – the last month seriously just came and went and nary a thought was posted.
In my defense, we have been having serious issues with our internet service – again – and it’s been incredibly difficult to get online. Also in my defense, there are only two periods of the day (from 5-5:45 am and 8-9:15 pm) that I am neither working nor spending family time with the girls and I don’t always want to spend those precious 2 hours in front of a computer.
But I miss putting things out here for you guys to read. And I like to tell myself that you guys miss getting posts.
So I’m going to commit to getting two posts out a week, because I think that is a doable goal and Heaven knows I can’t get anything done without a definite – and public – goal.
First up, what happened to us over the last, lost month?
First was the coolest. bug. ever. Look for a post on our friend the Eastern Hercules Beetle in a few days!
LB got to see her first real live rainbow.
We had a whirlwind trip to Connecticut for our friends’ wedding. (62 hour trip: 24 hrs driving, 16 hrs sleeping, and 12hrs of actual “vacation”) Don’t we look like one of us is running for senate?
DB was best man for the Littlest Brewster’s “Junky Joey”
There was a great deal of silliness involving feeding each other green beans…
And some serious lawn mowing
We harvested the garlic – and didn’t ruin it like we did last year!
Indoor picnics make days home with sick kids much more palatable
DB’s new favorite thing is reading on the porch with the girls. They seem to dig it, too.
Semi-nekkid painting! It’s all washable, right?
DB and his small blonde shadow harvesting peppers
Naturally, there was plenty of silliness out and about.
And we had a big day at church when the girls were officially dedicated. (Look for a post on that soon, too.)
All in all, it was a great month, albeit an incredibly busy one. But I’m looking forward to (hopefully) having our internet issues sorted and making an effort to update here more regularly. Coming soon: our buddy, the beetle; Dedication Day at church; an epic garden update; and how goes the quest for health?
