a new hat


Issabelle showing off her new hat. It was a fun quick knit, in some beautifully dyed local wool. As the nights are beginning to get a bit cooler here and we are out for soccer several times a week it is going to come in handy!

the push up



Issabelle learning how to get onto her hands and knees. She would push herself up with her arms and then get onto her toes. She was so happy that she could do it and then she would get frustrated that she wasn't going anywhere. It was fun to watch her. Every day she would figure out a little bit more.

story time


We have lived here three years and finally went to the library that is in our own town. It is a one room library but they had lots of good books. We went while they were having story time. Harkin absolutely love it. The librarian was very fun and it was a small group so he was really excited to get involved and loved all the songs, poems and books they did. I was hoping to go more often this fall but it conflicts with something else we have at the moment.

6 month photo shoot



I never posted pictures from Issabelle's 6 months. At this point she is sitting up by herself, moving around all by herself on the floor by pulling with her arms and rolling over. She is adore by her brothers and loves to chatter and give kisses.

** she is almost 7  months now and it is amazing to me how much she has learned in the past month. they grow way too fast**

a little break






On one of our many walks this month, Issabelle was a little tired of being in the stroller. She just did not want to sleep or just hang out. So we found a tree to sit under and wait for the boys to come and get us with the car. She was thrilled to be out on the grass and just hanging with Mama.

august days



















The days have been hot. We have had visitors. Tons of fun has been had. There has been a little accident that involved stitches. We've played games, swam and baked. Books have been piling up from 4 different libraries. An amazon gift card was won for 16,000 pages read.  Crawling has been mastered.  Meet ups with friends have been awesome. Lots of ice cream has been consumed. Too many late nights for Daddy. Plans are being made for vacation. Soccer has begun. Beds have been rearranged.  All 4 kids are growing- William is taller than his Mama!!!  Fall activities are being scheduled. We've been gifted with new toys. A new hat has been knitted. Scrap booking projects are coming along. The "big green egg" has provided us with some tasty meats. August is escaping us all too quickly.  Hoping to fit in a few more days like today--friends, water, sun. Loving life right now!

making money

The boys were determined to make some money last week. We had stayed close to home so they came up with a plan to sell things.

There was fresh squeezed lemonade made by Will. Landon sold rocks he had collected and split open - so they weren't ordinary rocks- but special. I also had a few books we were done with. They spent two days at about 3 ours each out there. We don't live on a very busy road but thankfully there were a few people who were interested and William broke even. He had made the investment into the lemonade all by himself. Landon did the best since he did't have to invest in his product and actually sold 20 rocks!

They said they had fun hanging out  and just chatting with one another. I was impressed with their signs they had made and the fact that they stayed out as long as they did. The first day it was pretty darn hot. And what a great learning experience!!

issabelle eats






Issabelle felt she was ready for food. She has figured it out and has tried quite the variety of food already. Avocados, apricots, apples, peas, oats, nectarines, bananas and yogurt. We are hoping to get a few more veggies this weekend. It is fun to have her at the table with us. I still can't believe she is eating already. Time is going by so quickly.

getting around




Issabelle isn't quite crawling. Almost there. But she has her ways of getting around and going for what she wants. The goal here was the orange garbage truck. You can see from the first picture she was totally the wrong way, but with determination she turned herself around and pulled herself towards it. She was so happy to have gotten it- if only for a second. Harkin soon became aware she had his toy and took it away. However he did give her something else in return-he is such a sweet brother!

days at play












The life of these two is so much fun to witness. The mornings they have to themselves to play and learn together. How they just adore each other. It warms my heart so...
