End of summer

Hannah told me yesterday "Today is the last day of summer". It should be. Seems like September should be the start of Fall. But technically it isn't.

In the morning Jill needed to make a quick trip to Wichita so I went too. We made a stop at Kohl's. Now, my husband told me last week "We need to watch our budget for the next month!" So I wasn't going to buy anything except necessities.


who can resist these prices????

and I had a 20% off coupon besides! So I got stuff for all 4 grandchildren for next summer.

This summer has been hard on my plants -

Not many of my flowers are surviving; a few like these. I'll have to purchase more like these next year.

Since it was the "last day of summer", when the girls came over in the afternoon (Jill teaches piano on Tuesday afternoon), they put on their swimsuits for fun in the back yard.

Bye, bye "summer" - or at least I can hope! These 90-100 degree temps are not enjoyable to me. Looking forward to Fall!!

My little princess

My little Princess Sophia

turned 3 today!

Here she is the day she was born.

..... and today
with her princess castle cake.

Princess Hannah

(in case you are wondering, she is scratched on the face because this week she saved her princess sister from disaster! Princess Sophia was headed down the driveway at breakneck speed on her trusty horse - ok, not a horse - a tricycle. Princess Hannah ran after her to save her and fell down and met her demise. What a brave little princess. Her mommy reminded her that there was Someone else who got really hurt - He even died - when He came to save her. Hannah knew immediately of Whom she was talking.)

Happy Birthday, Princess Sophia!! We love you!

"Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,and Your dominion
endures throughout all generations" Psalm 145:13
May Sophia grow to love You
as the daughter of the King, the King of kings;
that she will be a true Princess
and live her life to count for the Kingdom.
