weekend report

We spent all weekend with our windows open and it was wonderful. A few years ago Mike installed a whole house fan. We turn it on in the mornings and cool, fresh air floods into the house. Can I tell you how happy I am that another summer is over? Oh man, so happy.

I decided it was time to adorn my new front door. I'm neutral on this C, so it is staying. For now.

Mabel painted that teeny panda for my panda loving little sister, and I just love it so much! I'm thinking of commissioning something for myself. She is so talented.

I hope your weekend was a good one!
p.s. I'm barefootstephco on instagram, if you'd like to follow along.

    So fun to see your pic as one of Ree's finalists!

  2. Good weekend for us too. The Parkers-Matt and family and Lincoln and family, all came for dinner yesterday. Love seeing the kids and and their imaginations and play with each other. Some of my favorite times!
    Also said goodbye to one of our "adopted" granddaughters as she left for officers training in the Air Force.
    Busy days but that is good!!!!

  3. Mabel should start a little business:

  4. Such a wonderful little painting!

  5. Doesn't that panda bear have the sweet down tilt to the head? I love kids' pictures.

  6. Someone gave me the idea of commissioning artwork and so I paid our son to paint large portraits of each family member this summer after I saw how he did a self-portrait in his art class.

  7. She is a fantastic little artist! I love the panda so much. I may have to commission something myself. :)
