My little first grader

Sofia started first grade today at a new school, Peace Montessori. She has been a bit out of sorts for the last two weeks or so (*slight understatement*) and she did have a little trouble saying goodbye (i.e. had to peel her off of me and quickly exit) but I'm sure she's fine. Right? She's fine. Her teacher gave all the parents a note with a couple bags of tea. The end of the note said, "rest in the knowledge that your child will be cared for and encouraged in the natural enthusiasm for learning that children of this age possess in such abundance." Yes please.

I'm mowing the lawn

Can't you tell? That's probably what I should've been doing, but did this instead. I haven't had too much time to knit this summer, so I squeezed in about 15 minutes while the girls played on the hammock chair. I had the camera out in case an Oriole showed up but took this picture instead. Shhh, we've had some really nice weather lately. If I didn't know better, I'd say the summers here are *lovely*. But we still have August and September, and October to go when a heat wave might be just around the corner.
