I love that you are painting your nails for the little girls :) I work in a kindergarten class once a week and always make sure I paint my nails a spectacular color & wear gaudy rings for them. It is so appreciated haha!

Ugh...yes, crabgrass. We SHOULD have worked on those this summer, but we DIDN'T. (We are remodeling the kitchen, though. That counts for something, right?)

I <3 those netflix trials. Some of my favorite movies:
~Pride and Prejudice (both versions, if you can find them and have time)
~Bright Star
~Amazing Grace
~The Chronicles of Narnia
~Julie and Julia
~Leap Year
(and yes, I think Amy Adams is a brilliant actress) : )

Others that I like but that aren't quite favorites:
~Percy Jackson and the Olympians
~Over the Hedge
~Meet the Robinsons
~There was another one, but I can't think of it.

My almost-three-year-old loves the Imax documentary on speed (as in going quickly not the drug), and we also enjoyed watching some of the coral reef documentaries and travel video type things that they have on netflix.

So there you go. Hope it helps. : )

Happy first day back to school, Summer!
I had slippers on yesterday too. Brr!
As for Netflix, have you seen Atonement with Keira Knightley? You might enjoy it.

You make me miss teaching. The little girls used to love my hair. I hope you and Grant both have a great school year. And if you want more weeds to pull feel free to come to Kansas. I have more than enough for everyone.

@ donya.. ooh! i was actually thinking about atonement-- maybe i'll have to give it a try!

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
