Carrots for Michaelmas: Musings of a Catholic Wife, Mother, and Occasional Redhead

Summertime Comes to an End

I can feel Fall in the air, even through the 90 degree heat. The mornings are cooler and the humidity is decreasing. Maybe it’s all in my head, but it feels different. I’m looking forward to spending more time outside with Little Bear once the mosquitos go away. Speaking of which, we’re in the market for a new jogging stroller. Any suggestions?

We’re still taking advantage of summer while we can!

Nudity, a Hose, and Daniel's Parent Dog Louis. What could be better?


This is Benjamin running down the boardwalks at the Junior Museum.

What a happy, sweaty, little face!


It is now renamed the Tallahassee Museum, but will always be the Junior Museum to me. The Museum is mostly outside and includes a walking trail to view natural habitats for native Florida animals, otters, bears, red wolves, etc. Benjamin loves it. We try to go at least once a week.

Sometimes Benjamin looks JUST like his daddy’s toddler pictures:

And then sometimes he looks JUST like his Uncle Garrett (my brother), and not just because they both like to wear silly hats:

Amidst all the fun, we’re trying not to forget that summer is a time to relax:

I am so enjoying being home with this little guy.

Benjamin is adorable, but I am tantalized by the teeny glimpses of your house in the back of the photos. I want to see house pictures, too! 😉

Miss you guys!

I’ll do some house pics soon, Kate! Now that I’m just working part-time I’ve been trying to do things like..actually unpack. Yesterday we even hung some things on the walls! Imagine that! So, coming soon, my dear. Also, I’ve discovered that I have no eye for interior design. I need somebody like Alexann, Meg Embry, or Lara Bobo nee Collins to come and transform it into magic. Miss you so. Please come visit!
