Summer

spotty fruit

I think it’s safe to say that summer is here but then who knows, it is still June. The mornings are still chilly. But the fruit is here!

And my garden is exploding!

tomatoes! flat peas!

I’m such a happy farmer. I’m sure my neighbor thinks I’m a genuine nut with all the watering I do and the walking around crouching down taking pictures of things. It’s like they are my babies.

The kids are doing great. They are properly bored as they should be so their imaginations can grow, grow, GROW!! We have no television (it’s a godsend, believe me) and they spend almost 100% of their time outdoors making up complicated games and cluttering up my yard. But I don’t mind. I’m just happy that Bug has playmates. We’ve come a long way from being bored in the beach-house living room and watching Nickelodeon all day.

Of course I still have the internet so we struggle with that. I’m probably going to have to start clocking how much time the teenager puts in on Facebook.

There are swimsuits hung on the line…

…movies to be watched in the living room where the daylight seems to last forever.

my hair is long enough to put up!

And I’m wearing my hair up! A sure sign of summer.

I don’t mean to document every tooth that falls from Bug’s mouth but it’s still new and newsworthy around here.

tooth #2

Now might be a good time to link up my review post on Spin Brushes and decorat-able toothpaste dispensers. Since we’re all about tooth-care around these parts nowadays.

jack-o-lantern

At least in theory.

Later I have to tell you about the gym I joined and how I smashed my finger and cried.
