I'm down 2 kids....and it feels weird. Really, Hannah is the only one that's gone. Stephen is gone all day at drivers Ed and then baseball at night. So we barely see him. And with Steve gone too..the house is just strangely quiet.
Will spent all day drawing....he's been devouring the Big Nate books lately. Today he drew a caption from the book. He was so proud!
Great job Will!
We baked...banana muffins from our new Family Meals cookbook.
So good with a cup of tea. Yes...I'm drinking tea in the middle of summer. It's a million degrees out but my house is freezing.
I'm reading...these. I liked The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. I had planned to read Anne of Green Gables aloud to the kids..but Hannah is gone and doesn't want to miss out. So I started reading it myself and I can't put it down.
I Made...Kale chips. Finally. I know they're all the rage lately. I don't know what's taken me so long to try them. I used Gwyneth's recipe..although, they're pretty much all the same I think. Kale, olive oil and kosher salt. I LOVE them. I ate them all right off the baking sheet. Not only do they taste REALLY good...(after the initial crunch..they just melt in your mouth)...but they are GOOD for you! I hope my kids like them...cuz they're going in the lunch box next fall.
That was my day.
Stephen just got home from baseball...he hit the winning RBI. My dad was there to watch. Thanks for going Dad.
Hannah is having the time of her life on the Vineyard with my mom and her cousin Sophie and my sister Jen. Thanks Mom and Jen for taking great care of her!
Steve is halfway across the world.
Looking forward to my little family being together again.
