Garden Escape

To capture Summer's beauty perhaps forever, I like to take snapshots. It is my desperate attempt to convince Summer to linger a bit longer.

Here are some of my faves from this Summer:

And the girls. Well they have spent countless hours digging and planting and picking and eating. I am proud to say that during these Summer activities, they have successfully conquered their fear of worms. Worms are no longer a force to be feared, but one to poke and prod and show to anyone within arms reach. The girls each have their own section in the garden. Recently, Liv spent hours transforming her area into her own little paradise. She first confided in me that she was going to ask daddy to build her a structure to put in her garden. Not wanting Brian to have yet another project, I convinced her to use corn stalk husks to create a thatched roof. She did, and enjoyed the results so much that she made her area even more comfortable.

Speaking of husks: Brian used the word husky to describe a red onion today. I am still reeling from that description and wonder if the word husky should be used to describe anything in the kitchen? You can vote in the poll (upper right) to let your opinion be known.

Here are some shots of Liv's Garden Escape:

Notice the canopy of corn husks, sunflowers, and ribbon. The bucket is a very creative table.

The girls pose for a picture. Hee hee ho ha hee!

Your hand is tickling me, Holland! Hee hee. Ha!

Finally. Not sure that Holland even knew what she was doing that made Liv tickle so!

And because Wieber girls are always, always silly, here's another silly picture. As if we need any more proof.

Farewell sweet Summer. Though our visit was short this year, we shall meet again next year!

Peaceful Sleep

oh if only to sleep as a baby
this world's cares lay in a heap
oh if only to sleep as a baby
innocent bliss; peaceful sleep

Summer Swing

The Swing 

by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,

Up in the air and down!

But MOM. I don't want my other tooth to grow in yet. Why? Because. I haven't gotten to show all my friends, yet. Oh. Well, then I'll just take a picture of you so that if your tooth grows in before they see it, then you can always show them the picture of you without your tooth.

Ok. Because Porter didn't believe me that my tooth was loose.

Ok. I took your picture.

Thanks, mom.
