Summer is flying by

We've been having a busy summer in our little corner of the Garden State.
Princess got her first professional pedicure (with Aunt Shell and Cousin Amanda).
Speaking of beauty treatments, you may have noticed from the header pic..
Princess asked me to cut off all her baby curls
she was just tired of all the upkeep. She is loving it, and I am loving that
this means I don't have to take care of it for her any longer.
We have been gardening
Hanging out with friendsHanging out with cousins (Princess and Cousin J. below)Princess and Baby X-man love playing music togetherSpeaking of Baby X-man, he turned 2 this summer. It was a great party!And yes, you may have noticed the return of Peanut!!We already had a sleepover.Good thing, Camp Katie Day wouldn't be the same without her!Princess has been studying and enjoying the art of Georgia O'Keeffe We spent the rest of our time chillin' (recognize the hat Zilla?)

We do hope you are all having a great summer too!
I have been getting the school room ready for the new school year, I will post photos
of the new to us desks I picked up for the girls. As soon as I find my battery charger.

Retire Ronald McDonald

I have so much to do today, and so much to blog about, but all that must be
pushed aside to ask for some help today. That's right we need your help.
My friends over at Corporate Accountablity International called me last night
asking me to make a phone call. I did. I am asking you to do the same.
If you are concerned with the rising obesity in America's youth (ok all of us)
if it just ticks you off that McDonald's lure our kids in with toys to a possible lifetime
of health issues , call. There is more info here
Retire Ronald and here
Value the Meal.
They were very polite when I called, please behave in kind. ;-)

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
