This little one came out wearing footie pajamas today and felt a tiny bit sad, bc i was worried that she might be outgrowing footie pajamas. then i realized that this is 2018, and grown up men and women of all ages wear footie pajamas everywhere, even to work, so no worries .

Temps are finally below 80 around here so here's one last swimming hurrah until spring unless we go to mexico or something (not likely). just kidding, the kids will swim in any weather, they will literally c***k ice off the surface of a pond and get in it. (true story)

To spend a day doing a whole bunch of this is my idea of a perfect day
ps cassady's shoes are pretty much on the wrong feet 100% of the time. bc 5 year olds have much bigger things to think about than which shoes go where. .

If i ever go looking for my heart's desire again, i won't look any further than my own back yard, because if it isn't there i never really lost it to begin with..

Here's one more from the mountains bc someone told me i never smile in pictures and i was smiling pretty much the whole time i was there...until they told me how much college there was going to cost for my teenager. oh, well, having a reason to visit this beautiful place again will be worth it! .

This sweet, big hearted girl found a monarch on her last legs (wing?) and rescued it from a pile of ants. she sang it a sweet little song about its babies on the milkweed. i'm pretty sure that if monarchs can smile, this one was.

We're having another hurricane. woohoo. so here's little shoutout to banksy, bc we've been talking about him all week. when you homeschool, you can do a few lessons on graffiti artists like lady pink and swoon, and even take a field trip to see some if you want. also, if you homeschool, your kids don't get the day off for hurricanes. .

I've been working on my focus lately. it's not easy for me. someone who knows me well told me i'm like a hummingbird, and i get that. i hang out in the air, see something cool, approach with lots of speed, then turn fast back toward another target with full force and energy. if anyone has any tips on calming down, i'm all ears. otherwise, i'll just be here, darting from flower to flower, pausing just long enough to s**k down some nectar (aka lots and lots of coffee) .
