Today the rain has just been pouring! My brother's soccer camp started this morning with a monsoon-like downpour. Some of the parents looked very hesitant to leave their children, but in the end, I think all the kids had a great day. A and J, my cousin's kids, are staying with us this week while they attend camp... they came home very happy and in great spirits.
J and I ran some errands this morning and then checked out the river. It's flooded pretty bad...
This weekend was fine. My cousin B and her kids A and J arrived late into the evening Saturday, so Saturday morning/afternoon I got together with my friend Ash for some good old-fashioned pie baking! We really intended to make 4...
but we had so much fun we made 4 more! They were yummy. If you live in the area, please stop by for some pie and ice cream!
Today I finally got to meet Chef Messy! She met me here for some pottery painting. She seems just as sweet and crafty as on her blog. Can't wait to see how our creations turn out.
Finally, I think I'm really tired of my white walls. We stayed at a cottage last week where there wasn't a speck of white paint-- the place was loaded with color. My cousin has painted all her walls and that's inspiration to me. Plus, the new Cottage Living arrived just packed with adorable ideas. I think I need to paint something this week-- if the rain would just stop!
Well, we gotta feed these younguns', and do all the fun stuff like laundry!
