{pretty, happy, funny, real} - Feast of the Assumption and other doings

 ~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~


 See the first fruit of my planning sessions a few weeks ago?  Because I planned well, I was all prepared for today's feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother.  For breakfast we had blueberry coffee Assumption cake and sausages, and then the kids did a coloring page and Fritter added the following quote (I totally got this off of Jessica's blog):

See the beauty of the daughter of Jerusalem who ascended to heaven like the rising sun at dawn.


Oh my sweet little Frog.  He is the happiest baby ever and no one can resist his smiles.


This calendar is the epitome of our August so far.  That's right, it still says July 31.  That's because no one has thought to change it simply because there have been far more important things to do.  (see below).


We took a staycation last week and one of our projects was turning our playroom into a schoolroom.  This picture is from the "in transit" phase.  I hope to do a whole post on our doings from vacation.  In all that spare time I have before school starts.  (That's sort of what life is revolving around right now, "before school starts".  I have a plan people!  And I want to start it out right! ;).
Go visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more pictures of contentment.

Cute, winsome smile from your little Frog there! And it looks like your kids enjoyed their staycation :-)

Have a good school year!
