I have been taking the kids picture on the first day of school ever since Walker started preschool. I am waiting to get a scanner so that I can organize them all, including the pre-digital ones.

One of these kids is so excited! Can you tell which one was literally jumping for joy as the bus pulled up? Well, yes Coco was pretty excited too until she realized that we weren't going for a run.
I bought a couple dozen ears of sweet corn and am going to freeze ears since the kids love having corn-on-the-cob in the winter. LOL It doesn't always taste the best. If it's really good corn, I may get more and either can or freeze some off the cob.
I also have a bag of apples that I picked up from my Mom and Dad's yard. They make great pie, applesauce and apple butter. Maybe I'll bake a surprise pie for tonight.
Busy days! Have a good one!

Yes, it is a great tradition. I was going to guess you, but you are not in the picture!

Poor Coco...

This is an adorable picture! It would be fun to see all the ones you've taken so far.

How sweet! I remember that feeling of first day back (I was the excited one in my family!) Having those first-day pictures will be a priceless record of your kids growing up.

Now is the season for gathering produce. I have been dealing with mounds of zucchini (made into zucchini loaf), blackberries (jam) and marrows (marrow and ginger jam - divine!) We have a pear tree too - and if I don't harvest soon, we will lose them to the wild parakeets (yes, parakeets) in our garden!!
