By the look of my blog, you might think that nothing happened this month. On the contrary, it has been a very full month. The biggies would be that school started...and we harvested honey...and the boys started gymnastics (M-man) and swim (Big J). Those are all pretty big 'things'. But lots of smaller 'things' have been going on in between. Here's a glance at a few of them.
The boys saved up their money and bought Brickmaster sets.  These sets are super, and allow so much more creativity than a regular set.

Big J had a blast building!

M-man can follow the directions and build complicated sets these days.  What a boy!

The boys have had their fun at the expense of our dog, Rox. The Zhu Zhu pet just about drives her (and us) crazy!

The boys have been growing seedlings...these are spaghetti squash. I hope to get them in the ground this weekend. 

Our garden has been very plentiful. We've had lots of zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers. I have since completely overhauled the garden.  Everything, with the exception of my best tomatoes and peppers, have been pulled.  It's time for fall planting!  But that's a story for another day.

We have enjoyed more fruit from the trees in our yard.  Here, M-man is eating peach and apple bites.  He requested I take this picture. :)  We haven't gotten a ton of fruit.  We have enough pears, apples, and peaches to satisfy...but not really enough to try canning and such.  Maybe next year.

Some artwork for school...courtesy of Big J.  More on this later. :)

And last but not least...M-man trying his hand at circuit building.  He's becoming quite the builder.
