no balloons

For the first time in the five summers of living in this house we did not make it to the Tigard Festival of Balloons.

I love to get up early beginning on Friday morning and walk down to the park to watch the balloons launch.

Unfortunately, it was rainy.

Friday.

Saturday.

And, Sunday.

When my 5:20am alarm went off each morning, I listened for the rain, heard it on the roof, and went back to sleep.

Here are a few photos from years past…

And, you can see my posts from last year here and here.

It all worked out ok as baby girl woke up on Friday morning with a fever, so we spent the day lounging and fighting her fever.

By Saturday she was getting some energy back, so we headed out to goodwill while the boys washed Ben and took Odyssey for a swim.

We found a couple of treasures…

so, I have new projects to work on.

By Sunday afternoon, the sun began to come out…

These horses were out on my drive home from Trader Joe’s.

And, I was able to get out and enjoy my happy place a little bit.

We weren’t able to cross balloon festival off our summer list, but we’ll be working on some other items this week.

Stay tuned for a peek into our home later this week…

Oh, also…

funny feet

Today was the little guy’s first sharing day at preschool…

Monday afternoon the little guy and I came up with a list of things that start with the letter “F”.

Tuesday, we did an online search for images of those words.

I also looked through photos of the little guy to see if there were some of him with things that start with “F”.

I cut out the photos and images, glued them to colored construction paper, taped a ribbon to each and tied the ribbon around a hair elastic (they get really stretched out from my hair). I put the hair elastic around the top of a pair of boots and voila!
