First Day of School
The beginning of school is always so sad for me and so terribly exciting for everyone else. The girls are happy with their teachers and after lots of lazy summer (but not summery) days we are getting back into all things routine around here.

The girls are off at school and I get to hang out with these three little cuties all day!
I love to can. There is something so satisfying about growing your own fruits and veggies and then seeing them feed your family throughout the winter. Maybe it’s a little old fashion but I still love all the hard work and I love to try new canning recipes. Last year I discovered an awesome Carrot Fennel soup recipe (from the newer addition of the Ball canning bluebook) and this year I tried a three bean salad recipe. I didn’t take a lot of pictures of my hard work this year but here are a few.

We checked off another thing on our “Things to do before we leave Washington” list. We went camping on the San Juan Islands. We stayed on Orcas Island for two nights and also ventured over to Fridays Harbor which is on San Juan Island. We all had a blast!
