I still have about 2 weeks of august to catch up with, but since today is the last day of the month, and it was the first day of school, I'll just share this of my 5th and 2nd grader (oh my!) and catch up further later!

New car. Not ours, just keeping busy while waiting for emissions testing. 

New friends. At press time they are now chrysalises and soon will be butterflies! 

New washer! At long last! 

And to round out this particular day, a nice moment between two who don't always have nice moments.

Naughty puppy...

Friendly puppy (unamused cat)...

Tired puppy.

With apologies, I don't know where the time goes. I'm also lacking decent pictures lately, so I'm going to try to backfill with some highlights before the month is over. We've been home for a week or so now, catching up on the usual things, planning new projects, and even squeezed in a beach day!

And the after! Haircut was not a favorite activity, but we survived.

I love how kids find endless amusement in unlikely places. We've been chauffeuring my mom to physical therapy (shoulder surgery) and the kids just love love love the lobby of the building it is in. Passing a half hour here is easy with stairs to climb and elevators to ride. Who needs summer camp?

Hello friends! Let's bookend the summer with another month of daily posts, shall we? 

Technical difficulties yet to resolve, bloggger has crashed 5 times in trying to write this tiny bit. Back soon!
