Wordless Wednesday: Bono

Bono, our 7 month old puppy, thinks he'd make a great lap dog.

...And he loves to try.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week's photo scavenger hunt items were:
  1. Sparkle
  2. Pattern(s)
  3. Machine
  4. Signs or logos
  5. Rocks or stones

Sparkle

Grace's eyes sparkled when she had the chance to ride a horse for the very first time last night!  We went to a fall festival at a local church, and this was the first time there was not a terribly long line to ride the horses they have every year. 




Grace (6) was tickled!  She loves horses!  She said she felt really big way up there.



Pattern

The birds flying together didn't seem to have any pattern...I think they were just thinking, "We have to get out of here!  Now!!"  The temperature dropped dramatically yesterday afternoon.


Machine

My 13 year old washing machine died last Tuesday.  :(  We are hoping to buy a new one in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, thanks to my friends Kim and Kelli, there have still been clean clothes hanging to dry in my laundry room (and elsewhere).

That's homemade laundry detergent in the Purex bottle.  :)

Sign

We saw the sign for the hay ride at the fall festival but decided not to stay out in the terribly cold wind any longer.  (OK, Jason and I decided not to stay any longer.  Josiah and Grace would have been fine with taking a ride, I'm sure.)

 


 Rocks or stones

This was the best I could come up with this week for this topic.  This is what we use to hold the pens and pencils that are always on our kitchen table.  I decided not to fight that losing battle and came up with  something pretty enough to keep out.

Bunny Bono*

*Title compliments of Josiah (age 10).

We spotted a new bunny in our yard a couple of nights ago...

a much bigger bunny...



a much goofier bunny...


and he had a lot of fun running hopping around the backyard.

Bono seems to either run at full speed (at which point 6-year old Grace calls him a cheetah), or hop like a bunny.  This particular night, he felt like hopping.  I have yet to get a photo of Cheetah Bono.  ;)

Fall Flowers

My morning glories (although Grace has certainly claimed them as her own)...


Grace's cosmos that she planted this summer...most of them are at least as tall as Robert!  They tower over Grace now.


What's blooming in your yard?

Photos are SOOC.

Wittle People Wednesday

Grace (6) has been wearing the little prairie girl dress that my mom made me when I was little. 

Every day.


I think my mom made this dress during a Holly Hobby phase rather than a Laura Ingalls Wilder phase like it is right now for Grace.

Grace had caught a butterfly and wanted me to see it before she set it free.
Make that a Laura, Almanzo, and Rose phase, since she's reading the various series...She's an avid reader, and has already re-read some of them.  Little House in the Big Woods remains her favorite.  I think if I were six, that would be my favorite, too.  However, These Happy Golden Years is my favorite now that I'm (somewhat) grown up.

Were/are you a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder?  Do you have any fans in your family?

Wordless Wednesday: Bono

Our not-so-little puppy Bono is now 6 months old...


and at 45 pounds, he is half a pound lighter than Grace (6 1/2 years old) according to the veterinarian and pediatrician scales.  


He seems to share the same aversion to having his picture taken as the other males in this house!  ;)
