We headed to Alexandria for the weekend and had perfect end of summer weather. Saturday we headed to Frankton Heritage Days to catch the longest parade in the history of
humankind Madison County. It was Si’s first experience with rescue vehicles in a parade and I think it’s safe to say his mind was blown. So darling. Maren conked out on my arm right before the parade started, so that was nice timing. All the Garner sibs were in one spot, which is rare and fun! Si and Oliver were so glad Uncle Logie was there.
I headed up a Schleeter gathering for later that afternoon hoping we’d get to see everyone while we were already in town and it was a lovely turn out! Thanks so much, cousins, for making the trip to visit. Mom and Dad’s new back yard was the perfect spot for the afternoon. The kids roamed and the grown ups visited and, as usual, it was a laid back awesome time with some super healthy food options. Yay!
We got back home late this morning and have been scrambling to get ready for the week. Our afternoon involved Tim heading to his new classroom to lesson plan, a trip to the MedExpress for a Silas earache, and a wicked messy house from unloading the car into the kitchen. Bummer. We finally got babies to bed, yard mowed, and house tidied. Methinks bedtime is around the corner.
We are finally in the homestretch of home improvement projects. We are hoping to wrap up before the end of the month so we can list the house in October. Know anyone who wants an open floor planned, beautiful woodworked, updated Victorian in Lafayette? Send ’em over here.
Tim’s got a seminar all day Saturday and Sara comes Sunday. Most of October is already spoken for and ALL of November is booked. Life feels so busy right now, but it’s full of good things. So I suppose busy is good.
