Registered for school!

Just got both boys registered for school!!!

Our youngest, Aaron, is starting middle school this year... he's a 6th grader. Our older son, Matthew, will be in 10nth grade.

Last week we got Matthew's school shopping all done... next week it's Aaron's turn.
Matthew picked out an "awesome" black and red checkered tie... interesting...

Chicken noodle soup and homemade bread...

It's Sunday... ah.... I love this peaceful sabbath day!

My guys are a bit under the weather... not sure if it's allergies... or what. So today I've got chicken noodle soup simmering on the stove. Wish you could smell it! I love filling the house with yummy aromas!

Went to the garden and pulled a few lovely carrots, plucked off some swiss chard, a few green beans, some basil, and two little onions. Into the soup they went!

Aaron just had two bowlfuls complete with bread! Guess it has his seal of approval.

Soup time!

In a few weeks...

It's only weeks until the beginning of school. How can that be?

The kids are ready... they're getting to the "I'm bored!" stage.

Soon we'll buying new shoes... oh how Aaron's feet have grown! Actually... he has grown so much this year!!!! He's 11. What a big year for growth!!! I'm just maybe... maybe.. 1/2 inch taller than him!

I had to laugh because the other day he was trying to put on a pair of socks (they're way too small now!).... he was pulling and pulling trying to get them to pull up more.

Add to shopping list:
Socks for Aaron
Shoes for Aaron
All new clothes... for Aaron

Next week, we'll have to have a Billings, MT shopping day.
