Weekly Favorites: Aug. 16 to Aug. 22

Here we are at the last week  of summer and I can’t even believe how fast it went by.  My son is entering third grade this week and my daughter,  husband and I will be figuring out how to spend our days without a crazy 8-year old to entertain us. Here are some of my favorite images from this past week.
Grace is a climber and apparently she thought she was going to climb the fence into her brother’s little haven he’s set up for himself. I took her down seconds after taking this photo, to avoid her falling on her face.

My son is growing up too fast. He also has one of the most expressive faces. I can’t remember what this one was for but it had something to do with a story he was telling me about Minecraft.

Grace likes to try to sit right next to her brother when he’s drawing and I mean right next to him.

Grace has loved exploring our backyard with our puppy this summer, especially since our mini garden of pumpkins and tomatoes has been taking it over.

Jonathan was thrilled he could finally climb all the way around this particular playground equipment.

Grace has started leaning into her brother for hugs each morning.

Our second living room has become his Lego/Art Room. Somehow. It’s where he creates now.
