Ever since we've had a yard, we've had a vegetable garden. I say we, but it's really my husband who's had a garden. He does all the planting, the weeding and the picking. Occasionally, I will make my way out to the garden for a needed veggie, but the bulk of the work is his, by his own choice and my laziness!

Just some of the fruits of my husband's labor.

The fruits of my labor.

My job is to preserve the fruits (or veggies) of labor through canning and freezing. This empty basket reflects a couple hours of canning tomatoes.

Believe it or not, I really was not ready for school to start this year....

and neither were the kids.

Generally, I know children say they don't like school. I think they enjoy the routine and , yes even the work, that comes with school.

See, they're happy to be going to school.

Brianna started school this year. She's very excited. Her kindergarten is 3 full days a week, and I'm thankful for that fact. I'm not ready for my youngest to be gone 5 days a week.

Here she is getting on the bus. Isn't she cute?
