Actual conversation on the way to school today:

Lily: "Mommy, when I grow up can we work in a gummi factory?"
Mommy: "Uuuuh, sure."
Lily: "You would have to work there too."
Mommy: "Okay."
Lily: "And we would have to go to gummi school."
Mommy: "What would we learn there?"
Lily: "How to make gummis!"
Mommy: "Who would teach us?"
Lily: "People who already know how to make gummis, silly."
Mommy: "What do you think they make gummis with?"
Lily: "I don't know. But we would make healthy gummis with fruits and vegetables."
Mommy: "Good idea."
Lily: "But not with cement or bugs."
Mommy: "Certainly not."
Lily: "We should make crunchy gummis."
Mommy: "That would be different."
Lily: "Okay, enough about gummis. When is it my birthday?"

Summer's Almost Over

So we're enjoying the beautiful weather. Today Lily served as my photography assistant.

The sunflower is dying.



Lily's window art. Yikes, I know the window is dirty, but the inside is painted shut, and the storm window is latched on the inside, so there's no way to clean the middle. Replacement windows are on the wish list.
