Things we love

The days are getting shorter and the air, especially at night, has a new chill to it, which is a long way of saying,  it feels like fall!

Things we’re loving at our house right now: French toast with real maple syryp, Richard Scarry books, Goosie cards, BOB books, garden tomatoes, the reprintable resources from DSFOC,  Melissa and Doug’s play food set, this pretend clock, this zucchini bread, and fresh eggs from this chicken (now all grown up!).

What do you love, at your house?

    The sound of the frogs and toads at night [knowing soon they will head off for a long winters night]…. apples ripe from the tree, and baked in a crisp………Emma Sage’s nightly pile of books……the Internet and how I can [see and talk] to my daughter at college…….field hockey and a little girl who is all smiles playing…..and long walks along the gorge.

    The huge grins on both boys’ faces at the end of the first week back at school – and all the great stuff in their folders. Love seeing them learning and enjoying it!

    Seeing the incredible progress Nik is making. It seems almost overnight that the little boy who couldn’t sit up or hold himself upright in a chair is now climbing rock walls and play structures and growing like a weed.

    Scooby Doo, fresh bread, a long bath filled with toy sharks, singing and dancing are just some of Noah’s favorite things!

    I’m doing my french toast now with plum butter and greek yogurt, but I think I do need some maple syrup. 🙂 Just wanted to stop by and say hi and let you know I think of you often. Hope all is well!
