Beautiful Monday

It has been such a beautiful day today. The windows are open in my house, and it is starting to smell like fall! Right now I actually have some alone time, which doesn't happen very often! Evie is at a nearby sprinkler park with a friend. Her friend's mom called and asked if she could take Evie, so she is going to be gone for a few hours. I'm sure she is having a blast too! Yesterday afternoon we went to the park as it was a gorgeous, cool day. We walked along the river, and Evie had fun chasing all the geese :). I laughed when I saw the picture of Evie, Sierra and I because Sierra was the one with her eyes shut! Normally the people are the ones with their eyes shut. I guess it was too bright for her. Evie kept saying she wanted to take our picture. We told her she could, but she ended up cutting off part of Jeff's head. She still did a good job, considering she is only 6!

I am surprised at how early the schools in our area are starting. Most are starting either tomorrow or Thursday. That just seems so early to me. I am thankful to be able to homeschool Evie. I love how flexible it is. I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn and get her ready to go. I love that! She is now in first grade, and we are homeschooling more often now. I would like to start doing it 5 days a week once September starts, but I am slowly working our way back into it. It is going well so far!

Well you can still see Dad's face and that's what counts. She took a great photo. It does look like beautiful weather where you are. It's beautiful here too, it rained!

The weather does look wonderful there. Just this past weekend we had a sniff of autumn in the air too. It got me all energized; I love autumn so much. This week highs are only in the 80's which is great here for August!

Evie did a great job for a young'un and all you guys look so happy, even Sierra with the closed eyes. :)

It's cool here too, a lot like fall, but kind of a nice refreshing sort of cool. It's wonderful to not have to run the AC and to have the windows open all night and day. My favorite.
That photo of you and Evie is just priceless. And she did wonderful again taking a photo of her mom and dad, so cute.
Isn't it just so fun to see them become interested in things, hobbies and stuff. Wonderful to see their excitement.
