I posted about July happenings and here's part of August.
I didn't have much time for the garden, but I always enjoy doing a little something with it. This year a friend gave me a bunch of tomatoes so I used my peppers and we made enough salsa for the year!
It's good for kids to work, on this particular day Ethan's job was to unload the top half of the dishwasher. He decided to have a little fun with all the cups. Yes we go through a lot of cups on a hot summer day at our house! Maybe someday the kids will learn to reuse them. :)
This is the Navigator windshield. You're probably wondering how it got broke. Well, we talked to long after church one night and Anton started messing with the buttons in the Navigator. He switched it to 4-Low which makes us only be able to go 30 mph, cause it's broke. We were in the drive-up at Dairy Queen getting kids their little reading reward and as I was turned around passing back ice cream Mark started going forward and then put it in reverse to try to get it out of 4-low. Well I hadn't quite sat back down as the Navigator jerked back into reverse and BAM, I nail my head on the windshield in the parking lot hard enough to break it. Only things like this happen to my family. :) Oh and do my kids show me sympathy, NOOO, they started lecturing me for not having my seat belt on!
Mark and I hosted our 15th class reunion. Fifteen years, wow we're getting old!
Allison learned to crawl! The older kids thought it was great fun at first. Now that she gets in their stuff, wrecks their farms and eats their little toys, they don't think it as great as it once was.
Elijah and I would build little towers to encourage Allison to crawl over and knock down.
Cousins playing in the water. Seems someone ran the sprinkler over and it needed a little attention.
First she started crawling, then she got two teeth!
Potatoes were another veggie I planted. The kids love to dig them. It's so fun to see how many you'll find and how big they'll be.
