Kamikaze and the Kindergartener

Oye!  Summer flew by and now fall is half way over.  Oh, how time flies when you're working hard and having fun!  We are healthy and well, even with MMan sporting a nice little splint on a broken arm.  It turns out trying to escape one's crib can be a dangerous venture.  GGirl is rockin' the kindergarten world: learning to read, loves "kindergarten math" because its fun.  Of course her favorite part of school is taking her own lunch, gym class and playing outside for recess!
This week also brought making and canning 16 quarts of applesauce for me and a semi-failed gluten free baking project.  The GF Zucchini bread tasted great, but ran over everywhere.  More flour next time I think.  So there's a snippet of our world.  I hope you are all well!

So she could launch her first squirt gun attack!

A Breath of Summer Air

It has been a very long three months.  There's really no use rehashing all that has challenged me, worn me down, tired me out.  The recovery to normalcy has been weeks in the making.  Two days of summer like weather have pushed all the other efforts over the top and brought me dancing out of the winter doldrums, strolling on the path away from cabin fever.  If anything the tasks are more, but they seem more manageable.

At one point, summer seemed daunting.  Tonight, I'm hopeful that it will be full of hours of backyard adventures, wind dried sheets off the clothes line, chalk colored rocks and bedtimes pushed a little later because the sun's out, the air's warm and kids are playing happily.
