I said I was going to keep up with this blog better. But. I lied. Sorry about that. Man, I have been so slack! I don’t think you should ever be too busy to blog but that’s what I’ve done it seems.
Looking back at last month’s post I am AMAZED at how different the garden looks. Here is a picture.
Explosion of green! We have had a LOT of rain this year and well, I guess this is one of the benefits! To the left are tomatoes, and in the middle you have some giant bean plants that are hard to wade through. Then, of course, to the right is the corn. We lost many of our squash and zucchini plants due to worms eating the roots. :( But we have cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, and now cantaloupes ripe for the pickin’.
Also, we have our second family of bluebirds in the birdhouse. I love it!
In other family news, Cory has been at the new job for almost two months now. I can’t remember if I wrote about that earlier or not. Bad memory, you know. It’s an awesome job and he’s awesome at it!
We have stayed pretty busy this summer. Funny how that happens. Beach trips, swimming, camp, library reading program, trips to Gramma’s house, etc. And still so much more to pack in before school starts. Speaking of school, I did something that I thought I’d never do. I registered my two oldest at the public elementary school yesterday. I think I just heard all of my homeschool mom friends gasp. I know. I flip flopped back and forth for theses last few weeks because I can see pros and cons to both choices. But in the end, we decided that this may be something good for us. Something different. A change in the routine and hopefully a positive experience for all of us. It’s just a little country school about 3 minutes from our house. And quite honestly, I’m looking forward to the change. We just take this education thing year by year. Next year we may be homeschooling again!
Also, we have a fast growing puppy. When I adopted her (and I say I because she’s my dog :)) she weighed in at 14 pounds. I used to be able to pick her up and hold her on my lap. Now she’s 37 pounds and counting!
She loves to leap and jump through the tall grass hunting who knows what! I’ve taught her a few simple tricks but that’s about it. Cute little mutt!
Until next month….;)
