September Sunshine

Well with sunshine and fun locations comes excessive images… sit back and enjoy the tail end of our summer of 2016 (seriously not the same ring to it as the summer of ’69).DSCN0971

Slipping Back to September

When I started this blog it was with a commitment to keep it going through thick and thin… There have been a few varations on posting… Once in a while when the kids were wee… daily sharing when the homeschool life was new and fresh… month chunks at the end of the month… and now, a full on battle to chase myself back to current. I have actually found great joy in reflecting on these months long gone. It is amazing to see, now removed, how highly productive and honestly HAPPY we were back in times when I was SURE we had accomplished so very little. DSCN1119

September was a busy month. We finished up our visit with Jeff that overlapped a day with Sean.

DSCN0990DSCN0993DSCN0995Of course since we had Sean down we had to go do fun things… a trip to the Minnesota Historical Society… where we apparently took way too many pictures. But the temporary Hmong exhibit was amazing! DSCN1107

DSCN1024DSCN1067DSCN1096DSCN1104Plenty of fun times at home (of course with computers included).DSCN1133

The weather was absolutely lovely so plenty of time was spent outside in the pool…

Be sure to check the overflow link… I took so many pictures of the festival and the museum. It is such a waste NOT to share them HERE.IMAG0798

Summer Requires Overflow
