I hear my wife say it all the time ...
"I'm out numbered." "I live in a house full of boys!"
I don't blame her for voicing her frustration. With boys come muddy messes and rough play. Not a day goes by that I don't witness a sword fight, a matchbox car traffic jam, or a hefty launch of energy off the end of the couch.
They are a hand full. Both of them.
No tea parties or shoe shop-a-thons here.
Oh, and did I mention a never ending supply of bugs?
Here is Mr. Rowan showing off his collection of monarch caterpillars (in the jars behind him). They are all over the milkweed along the walking path this time of year. He can't wait till the butterflies start hatching. There are currently 7 chrysalis'.
Remind me to make this shaggy little guy a haircut appointment.
Today was Rowan's first day of school. He is officially a Kindergartner. The fun begins.
... the little rugrat. He's growing up too fast.
The rascal didn't even bat an eye when he jumped on the bus this morning. I think mom was waiting for just a little bit of apprehension on his part.
His biggest worry this morning? "Which seat should I sit in on the bus, daddy?"
DQS9 ended today. My quilt was finished just in time. I was really sweating it this round because of the new rules. If you are even one day late, you're out of the next round.
Here are several pictures of it after I pulled it out of the dryer this morning.
Lot's of fall colors like my partner requested. I used Kona solids, Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow, and Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt.
I hope you like it partner.
I had a very hard time letting this one go.
