Fall and a Fall

After a nearly 5 month hiatus I thought that I'd post again.

Summer is over the Fall is here.

I am not going to try to "catch up" on my blog. I'm going to jump in right where we are.

School has already started. This is not a busy time in our home (compared to other times of the year).

Bradford has been out on his mission for 11 months.

Donovan is at BYU.

Spencer and Connor are conquering the High School and Ellery has the Middle school to himself.

Owen is in Kindergarten but it seems he never goes since it is every other day and we keep having days off. Last year he had preschool 4 mornings a week.

Patrick and Lillian hang out with Mom (and often Owen). Lillie is making good progress on getting potty trained.

That brings us to the second Fall.This an x-ray is of Donovan's right leg. He was playing pick up football on Saturday night. He made the catch, then dragged the guy who jumped on his back for a while before they collapsed in a heap and heard the pop. His foot was dislocated 90 degrees to the outside. He tore the tendon, broke the fibula and chipped the tibia. He had surgery on Sunday. He has a plate on the fibula and a screw between the tibia and the fibula. He'll be on crutches for 8 weeks.

So that is the big news of this week.

Summer plan?

Do you have summer plans? I don't mean, where are you going on vacation? I mean, how are you going to make it all work?

I have been trying to figure out summer chores, etc.

These are a few of the things that I've been thinking about.





What are you guys doing? What are your friends doing?

Amy Butler

I was able to meet designer Amy Butler at a local quilting shop. She was vey nice and gave me a signed pattern for her cute Butterfly and Lady bug pillows.


Too bad Lydia had to miss the fun since she was getting ready for her cruise. :)

Vocabulary Lesson: Ristra

Ristra -
A string on which foodstuffs, such as chilies, onions, or garlic, are threaded or tied for storage.

This is common sight in New Mexico but rare in Ohio.
