It is a long wait when the cherished blanket is washed. I’m not sure if it’s better to be able to see it go ’round and ’round, or if it’s more torturous.

Waiting for the blanket - childhood

It’s a very sweet thing to enjoy when it’s all done though.

I’m enjoying hearing U.S. history again and again. Too bad I forget so much between the times I hear it!

School and then chores.

Colors impact me. The fall sun and deep hues of the sky and leaves are fun to catch. Lacey’s outfit is all her own doing though. I think she’s trying to compete with nature.

Ok, this isn’t normal. I made Heidi do this, to sit and relax.

This is more of what it’s really like.

Or on another day, this is how she enjoys being out in the fall sun.

We took a field trip to the Oregon Zoo. I had grand plans of having fun taking photos the whole day. I took, maybe 20. It’s because with their friends, the kids ran ahead and I rarely saw them. Heidi had her map out the whole time, keeping them on track.

Yeah, good for them! I didn’t even make them go.

Is it ok to have a sucker in your mouth when riding a fourwheeler? It’s funny how much gut reaction says, ‘no’, but it’s not like he’s running or anything. And it makes me giggle to think that was my first thought when so many other worse things could happen on a fourwheeler!

Good morning Lacey.
