Summer is Flying By
Last winter I found these styrofoam planes at the dollar store. I bought a bunch of them and stuck them in a box. Winter isn't the most friendly time for flying planes in Wyoming. This week, my snoopy boys found them (which is good, since I had forgotten them and summer is nearly over).
They were the kind you have to decorate yourself. So out came the markers and now the planes ... and their hands... are nicely decorated. The nine year old and I had a great discussion about the president's flying habits, so two of the planes were labeled Air Force One.
It was a lot of fun watching the boys launch their planes.
We've been enjoying the fresh fruit available in summertime too. I'm definitely going to miss that. We got these plums from a tree in my sister's yard in Colorado. They sure have been good. This is only about half of them, and there are around 50 in the picture. They've been disappearing fast. I like to buy as much as possible from fairly local places, but since fruit doesn't grow much in Wyoming, "local" to me means Colorado, Utah and Idaho. We've enjoyed fresh peaches, apricots, cantaloupe and especially tomatoes this summer.
I also get two dozen fresh free-range eggs each week from a local family. I'm really not much of a fan of eggs, but I do like fresh eggs. The yolks are so much brighter. I made "bird nests" for lunch one day, which was a huge hit. (I didn't think to take a picture after they had finished cooking.)
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
