Wow! It’s September already. August was a pretty crazy month, as I knew it would be. Now September is here and I feel like there is always so much to do! The past couple of days have consisted of me painting our guest bathroom. We also started school this week (just Science.) We will be diving in to all of the other subjects next week, once the rest of our books arrive.
Before these pictures get buried any further into my camera roll, here are some iphone photos from August.
Desmond played along with me as we found a couple more backgrounds for #dresstherainbow. But I think Desmond wins the prize. He was committed to dressing the rainbow.
August was the month we bought our first house! We had lots of amazing people who helped us in so many ways (including Maggi and Jeremy, pictured below) Thank you to everyone who helped clean, move, or provide food for us this month! We are so very grateful for all of you!
I had to get a picture of all 4 of my kids who slept in the nursery I had painted for Liam before he was born. (4th photo) So many memories in that house.
Rachel and I were able to find a red wall! Thank you, Target!
Liam turned 7 this month. We love this little guy. I stare at him and wonder how he grew up so quickly. He has always dreamed of being an artist when he grows up. But as we’re reading about space in our Science, he now says he wants to be an engineer for NASA–and he’ll do art for his hobby.
His very specific request for his cake. Yellow and teal stripes. Covered in sprinkles–but no sprinkles on top!
Desmond wakes me up around sunrise most mornings. So I always have to sneak a peek through the windows in the living room. (3rd photo)
For anyone who has been to our house and has noticed the cat door (3rd picture)…It’s being put to good use!
This blue door will soon be a bright pop of….some color. I can’t decide! Don vetoed hot pink 🙂
And since I have you here…a short and sweet edition of Kids Say
Kai–“Mosquitoes eat your skin and then drink your blood.”
Kingston–“that’s really cool.”
Kingston–“What’s for dessert?”
Me–“I’m not sure if we’re having dessert tonight.”
Kingston–“But there has to be dessert…..I need dessert.”
Me–“Isn’t it cool that we have a new house?”
Liam–“Yeah, now we can do anything we want when we’re in there…except lie.”
Me–“Guys, today is Desmond’s one month birthday.”
Kai–“So how old is he now?”
Me–“I’ll turn 28 on my birthday.”
Liam–“I’m not sure if you will.”
Liam–“Because you might die before then.”
