234/365: Path to Paradise

I had a doctor appointment in Champaign yesterday.  I took the opportunity to go over to U of I campus, going and taking pictures at the Arboretum, Japan House, and Idea Garden.  I am going to do a 365 photo a day cheat and disperse some of my favorite photos over this next week.

This little guy was at the park this evening.  I believe he made this mess on the table.

off they go! 
I did not cry this morning.  I think they kicked my ass this summer and am relieved to have some silence.  ;) I am hoping they are having a good morning and look forward to hearing about their day.  My brain is filled with my thoughts of them, wondering how they are doing.  :)

230/365: A World of Difference

I got a new food processor

believe it or not, I used this ancient thing for the last several years to shred zucchini.  

look at those beautiful shreds

What would have taken me half the day, took me 30 minutes to do this and make 3 loaves of quick bread. Sometimes simplifying life includes fancy gadgets and electricity.  enough frozen for 22 more loaves!

Miss Iris

 I am just giving a shout out to my little girl! She is blossoming into an interesting, creative, brave, expressive, fun girl!  She is off to Kindergarten on Tuesday.  I think she will do just fine!
Here she is going into her Meet and Greet.  She had 7 people attending with her.  Her entourage.  ;)  

 Look at this run below!  I LOVE these pics!  She is 1 of 2 girls on the flag football league.  She is trying so hard and learning so much.  She has such  a tiny body, but she works hard at pushing against those bigger boys to block and with some great blocking effort from her team mates, she made a good run with the ball at her 1st game this past Saturday!  Go get em girl!
