While I've been doing lots of this
the boys have been happily playing, building, constructing,
and just enjoying the summer.
We have been spending a lot of time outside too, bike riding, park visiting, gardening, and walking. The days of summer are long, and the boys have been coming in after dark, exhausted and happy. G actually fell asleep on the floor, face down, with his bike helmet still on yesterday!
The long days of summer ARE for play and garden and food preserving. I can't believe that summer is almost over - but I think I also welcome it with relief. Soon we will be tucked inside after dinner as the darkness comes earlier, playing board games, knitting, crafting, more frequent blogging, and being together. But for now, we have another month or so of summer rumpus and piles of veggies on every counter and windowsill, and huge pots of simmering tomatoes or canning baths on every burner!
We have been chatting and planning some fun things we want to do this fall/winter. Classes, outings, crafting, projects, you name it (going to share some of that soon). I have always been a cool weather person and fall/winter energize me and give me a burst of creativity - so planning now is good not only because we can register and plan for fall activities in time, but also so I can dream of all the crafty goodness to come! Until then, back to my tomatoes!
