Never-ending Projects

Today is VOP day–there will be victory over the paper that hasn’t been filed in it’s proper place!

as autumn approaches

“the chilly nights are a clear sign: summer is over. the school bus now makes its rounds at 8:15 and 3:45. windows closed, extra blanket back on the bed. and our first fall season as a family.” a status report as summer ends and fall arrives.
