Thank goodness for zucchini
Cause really its the easiest thing to grow. These were giant ones that must have missed our lurking eye for a while cause we have been picking them much smaller. My tomatoes will not turn red dang it! And we've gotten like two ears of corn.
I'm on a mission for books. Asked about ones for Luke on facebook (thank you facebook for being so handy like that, I got a great response that I want to compile). Darby needs some too.
Luke is such a great reader, and been trying to figure out how to do that again. and again. and again. and again. A big part is just getting fun books. A mom told me her boys were reading Calvin and Hobbs comics and Luke is really liking the big book of them I got.
But back to Darby...... So I found these Ivy and Bean books! I love having things with the kids name on it. The characters are seven year old girls and its a series. How darling do they look? Especially since we have a new sister named Ivy. We just started reading them today. Darby really wants to read them by herself but since its a little above her reading level, she reads one side of the page and Jason or I read the other side to her, just to keep the pace up.
And speaking of Ivy, here she is rocking out. The girl slept from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the morning. Thank you baby girl, I needed it.
