This little gal has settled in big sisterhood so beautifully. I am just gobbling her up these days.
On the Homestead:
It’s been rainy and muggy, but we’ve gotten some great produce from our garden:
Prep for an Italian meal in honor of St. Maria Goretti. Tomatoes, herbs, and peppers all from our front yard!
And this guy harvested our first watermelon of the summer and won an 8k for his age group on the same morning! But don’t be too impressed, I drank an entire cup of coffee and took a bath before he got home from the race so…..a super productive morning for everyone! Wink.
And this little elven beauty continues to be the snuggliest thing ever. And she gave me a five hour stretch of sleep the other night! What a lovey!
The Quotable Benjamin (at 4 years old):
“Don’t waste food, Mama. That’s like stealing from the poor. At least, that’s what Pope Francis says.” How are you so cool, kid? Kind of makes up for when you bit me last week during a preschooler cyclone of rage, you little stinker.
“Faith of our fathers living still, in spite of dragons, fire, and sword.” (If you’re going to forget some of the words to classic hymns, might as well make your version awesome.)
