Saint Martin's on a Monday...



 
 



After lunch, I made a blueberry blackberry summer cake (with blackberries from bushes in our yard!).  Once it finished baking, the children and I headed out to do some banking.  A historic church only a mile or so away from our house allows people to walk through on Mondays, so we went through looking at all of the restoration projects that have been undertaken.  It was really interesting to look at all of that lovely old brick, wood, and plaster that dates back to 1756.  Aren't those pews interesting?  I have never seen L and U shaped ones before!

Pretty Scene...


:: Sunflowers, Marigolds, and Tuberose ::

Overheard...


Papa: Did you wash your hands after you went to the bathroom?

Button: (matter-of-factly) No. I'm already sick.

Papa: ??

(the best part is that he is not sick!)

Reading to Molly...



Over the summer, our library has special trained dogs come to listen to children read aloud.  All three of our little ones read to Molly this past week.  Button chose a Carl book, Little Man read Good Night, Gorilla, and Sugar Plum selected a Berenstain Bears book.  Molly was such a sweet girl!

Little Turtle...


Look who Papa found when he went out to water the plants the other day!  We made a little habitat for him to live in for a few hours and enjoyed observing him before we let him go.

Summer Evenings...





A cool summer evening calls for s'mores!  We found that in the absence of graham crackers, homemade chocolate chip cookies will more than do in a pinch!
