Things to Do - Snapshots of August & September 2016
Every year I try to plan our vacations so that we "accidentally" miss the Arlington County Fair. Unfortunately, this year I totally blew it. Oh well, at least the kids were happy.
Shadows are fun.
I spent a day at Harpers Ferry with the kids and their friends. The kids liked learning about the town's history, but they LOVED the ice cream parlor more.
Obligatory first day of school picture (2nd, 4th, and 5th grades). Everyone dressed up for the event. And then we all went back to our slovenly ways on day 2.
The beginning of school brought about lots of reading and homework.
MD Renaissance Festival = happiness for everyone.
Especially he who decides to be king.
Family movie night. Everyone kept yelling, "mom, please MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!"
Soccer season began.
And I photographed a flower.
Dan and T decided to make over our backyard and I could not be happier about it.
The boys made created warriors out of stuffed animals.
T learned how to ride a bike and now he will never get off the thing.
Yes, we still have two dogs.
More fall flowers.
I attended a Yan Fam Way workshop, where I met a lot of amazing people and learned cool stuff.
Sometimes it rained, but it wasn't raining when I took this photo.
I still love hanging at Longbranch Nature Center with this cool girl.
Sometimes we see flowers there.
And sometimes deer appear through the flowers. How cool is that?
Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you're all having a good fall!!
