Shout to the heavens...

We are the epitome of a shout commercial. We are the reason shout continues to be the number one stain remover. Without us that company would surely go under, because there's no way that any other kid comes home from school as dirty as my kid...and I'll bet you can guess which kid I'm talking about (aka, connor.)

Ebola...

Tammy and I had a hair brained idea yesterday while running. We passed a painter who was covered from head to toe and quickly realized that CDC workers (trying to dodge ebola) would be perfect costumes for our church Halloween party. It was great, but talk about sweaty. We practically suffocated (especially our husbands) and quickly realized how grateful we were to not be real nurses fighting ebola. One night in that outfit was enough for me.

Memories...

This picture (drawn by grace) makes owning a boat worth every penny put into it each summer. Having a boat can at times feel like babysitting. It has to be maintained, winterized, de winterized, and costs gas money every summer but the memories by far outweigh all of that.

Bloody fingers...

You know you live in a friendly town when a random stranger lady asks you if you want a bloody finger cookie. Hmmm...not sure how to feel about that...

Field trips...

I got to take this little sugar bear on her school field trip last week. I love this girl so much. She's five years old which means this is sort of what I like to think of as a golden year. It's the year in school when you're still young enough to do lots of crafts and go on lots of field trips. She enjoys every minute of it too.

Hiking in this beautiful place I call home...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love where I live. Beauty is everywhere. We spent yesterday having a picnic. I ran 9 miles with my friend in the morning while my oh so dedicated and good husband made our lunch. We also hiked some and barely dodged the rain. It was a great time. I love being with this great group that belong to me.

Sunflower...

The day my boys stop surprising me with flowers will be a sad day...but that hasn't happened yet, so I'll just keep smiling.
