We went for a lovely hike into the back woods of our property on a gorgeous afternoon. Lots of exploring and discovering and collecting treasures!

This is late. But oh well. 10 on 10 for September.

I have lots of goals for my kids. Lots of things I want to pass on, that I want to teach them.

But raising kids that have a love of learning, a love of reading, that’s a big one for me. And they each have shown the capability and desire for story time and independent time exploring new and old books. ย Man, I love that. We spend a while everyday just reading. Looking at pictures, asking questions, learning.

So here’s hoping to raise a pack of little readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I took these on the 10th, even though they are getting posted late. Totally counts.

Just a normal Thursday. Early mornings with the remnants of a long night on the counters… baby bottles. Bitty playing while the bigs eat breakfast. Off to preschool drop-off with a car-full of crazies. Back home, without the biggest. Their favorite special twinkie giggles and wrestles. Dishes never stop, and with a special addition of the leftover art supplies from our MOPS playdate the day before. Then pre-school pick up with a stop to gather eggs. Of course with loud guesses from the car on how many eggs there might today. Five was the consensus, they were wrong ;). And a place of honor for new preschool art. Just a day. Just a perfectly imperfect day.
