Just another quickie post while the cottage fries are cooking.
Today Noah started back to school, thus today is schultüte today. I wasn't planning to make them this year. I really thought the kids were a) too old, except for Faith, and b) they didn't really care that much anymore. But, Noah asked me yesterday if he was going to get a schultüte, and when I asked Doug if he thought he seriously wanted one, he said "yes."
Gratuitous schultüte photo. Because we already bought all our school supplies, mostly it was just junk food. I should have added a new toothbrush. The college boys got some pens and Faith got some new markers.
Faith washed dishes for the first time in her life today. I report that news only to humble myself. I am ashamed that I have not required my daughter to wash dishes by the age of eleven. She empties the dishwasher often, but she has never actually put her hands in soapy water (except when she was little and it was fun) and scrubbed dishes. Now I have to get her on the toilets, well, you know what I mean. Scrubbing them.
I thought that once Noah went to school I would have relaxing, quiet days at home, but today was spent at the physical therapist and running around for schultüte stuff. Tomorrow I am going to see my mother-in-law and on Friday I have to provide the shuttle from Ohio State to the doctor's for Joshua, and deliver schultütes. I can hope that next week will be quiet.
Gratuitous angry cat picture. The noise of making schultütes woke her from her nap.
Gratuitous craft pictures. Two of these little boy quilts went to a lovely online friend. Betcha can't guess who.
And this little bird will be one of many on a baby mobile I am making. I think she is so cute.
And the cole slaw is tossed, the cottage fries crisp, and Noah is manning the hotdogs on the grill pan and stirring the chili sauce, so my time here is up.
