wonderful weekend

Unfortunately, my self-allotted blog time expired about two hours ago.
It took me forever and a day to get these pics
to upload.

Now I have about 30 seconds to write a quick something
for you (seriously, it amazes me that anyone comes back here),
then jump in the shower.

The weather here has continued to be amazingly
and unseasonably cool.
I'm so thankful for Al Gore dreaming up "global warming"
cause it's really workin' for me.

So we took advantage of the great hair day
and spent a lot of time outside yesterday.

Pulling the camera out now automatically
puts Lucy into model-pose mode.
Oh my.

Not exactly modelesque but cute, no less.

Lucy has been making this face since about
day 3 of us becoming her forever family.
It continues to make us smile!

Simply gorgeous.
A rare pic of mother and daughter.
We spend a lot of time on our scooters.
A lot of time.

Our little one-room schoolhouse is
coming along nicely!


Gotta run.
Have a happy Monday!

Oooh, I am jealous of your schoolroom! But for now making do with what we have. Cute pics. And we love visiting you every day! :)

Debby said...

Wow!! That "schoolhouse" is impressive. Do you builders want to come & build me an "office"???????

Cute Lucy pics.....=)

Scooters are FUN! I wish we had paved areas to ride - or to skate - that would be fun, too!

Love the scooter pic and your one room school house looks like it is going to be just great!

Karen said...

Precious pictures of a beautiful little girl! I love your one room school house. I can't wait to see the inside pictures. We have a "one room school office":-) That was one of the selling points of our house when we were looking...it had an office/school room.

Totally off topic (kinda), but a friend of mine is house hunting and said that a lot of homes have a room listed as "office/home school room". I love that more people are seeing the need/benefits to home school.

MOVE OVER TYRA! There's a new model in town!

Love it!

P.S. LOVE the Al Gore comment too. We totally agree over here!

We are having much cooler weather too. Sat. we stayed outside all day, turned the air off and opened windows---in ALABAMA!!!--it's usually hitting 100 degrees in Aug.

Great pics. We have a little (I do mean little) one room schoolhouse, too. It's wonderful even if we are like sardines in there. lol Yours will be much prettier. ;-)

Chilly here in Michigan, too. It pretty much felt like fall this whole weekend. I am not looking forward to the cold coming already. Hopefully, our summer will surprise us and extend itself before fall really arrives.

You and Lucy are just two peas on a scooter!!!

Can't wait to see how you transform the schoolhouse!!!

Adeye said...

Al Gore????? You are hilarious! Don't even get my dear hubby started in THIS one :)
Oh I absolutely love the Lucy pics--what a treasure.

Karin said...

Gosh, and Algore invented the Internet, too, so where would we be without him?

Love your school room!! :) Can't wait to see the finished product. After visiting my girls' school today, I am again wishing God would give me the ability to homeschool. Their school is so old and disgusting. I would seriously get DEPRESSED if I had to go there every day. ugh. I guess I am spoiled.

Sharla said...

Great pictures...she is SO cute!!

I wish you could send some of that pleasant weather this way! No good hair days in the south!!

Jean said...

I love your schoolroom!! How fun!! I bet it will be adorable inside!!

We love scooters here, too! They are so much fun!!

Blessings to you!
