{phfr} around the farm

 Pretty- Farm girls at work!We have a corn maze every year, and the girls are going out with flagging tape to mark the paths to encourage people to stay on the paths!
 Happy- Fall raspberries are currently in season. I didn't get enough of them in summer, and am so happy to be enjoying more now! Raspberry scones, peach raspberry pie, and raspberries with yogurt. Yum!
 Funny- Stuart falling asleep minutes after assuring me he wasn't sleepy and did not need a nap.
Real- Fall is really here. We had two rainy days in a row, the nights are pleasantly cool, and things are slowly beginning to change color. I love fall, but, honestly, last winter was eight months of rain, cold, and grey skies. I am not sure if I am ready for that again! Linking with Like Mother, Like Daughter for another go-round of pretty, happy, funny, and real. Really needing the reminder to find contentment in the ordinary this week!

{phfr} late summer edition

Pretty- end of summer roses

Happy- the sight of my husband and children holding an animated conversation around the dinner table always makes me happy

Funny-Ella needed a picture for a school project. When I printed the picture, I noticed that Graham had jumped in to the picture as well!

Real- we began school again, and as part of our study on ancient civilizations, we did a dig on our property. We found lots of pieces of old glass, and a few whole bottles. Lots and lots of fun, but the reality is that I have been to busy to blog since school began! Here's to autumn's slower pace!
Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter for another round of pretty, happy, funny, real. Recognizing contentment in our everyday lives.

an apology

Dear Blog, I am sorry I have neglected you so shamelessly. You would think I would at least have time to post a picture and a sentence or two, just to show I was not willfully ignoring you. But, alas, that was not the case. Between sick kids, back to school craziness, dentist and eye doctor appointments, broken cars and computers, teenage boys to feed, and mountains of laundry, I had to let something go, and I chose you. For that I am sorry, and to make amends, I will try to spend more time cultivating our relationship this week. Forgive me? Pretty please?
