My girl is home again. Beginner camp is only three days so Kylie and I took another road trip this afternoon to collect the girls. They are so very tired but couldn't stop talking the whole two hours home. They had a great time and can't wait until next year.

Hudson leaves tomorrow for some speaking engagements and will return on Sunday. The kids and I will just plan to be mellow, laying low, enjoying each other without all the rushing around that summer brings. Things are really settling out now.

The people across the road have sold their house, so by the end of September we will have a new family with two kids and a third on the way joining our plethora of offspring. Our road is known by realtors as Sesame Street and for good reason. For the most part, each house has a couple of kids or one on the way, and if not they have grandchildren that come to visit.

Gardening is winding down although the hollyhocks are finally blooming. One of our trees is actually dropping it's leaves. Not so sure I am ready for that yet!

Off now to break up the daddy- daughter reunion so I can tuck her in and crawl into bed myself.

That's great Claire had a wonderful time at camp! How could she not:)?

It must be nice to be surrounded by other families; on our lane, there are no other kids, just undergrad students. It will be nice to be around other families when we move.

Hope you enjoy some rest before the storm that fall brings.

I would love to be a part of a community like that....Sesame Street! Lucky.

What a great name for your street! I imagine it's a great place to live too! :)

WOW I am loving the new look! See what happens when I am away? A makeover! Can I come over and live at Sesame street? Oh yes and thank you for the gentle push!:)

I'm glad she enjoyed camp so much.
I'm sure the Sesame St. atmosphere makes for lots of fun. I assume there's always someone for your kids to play with.
It probably gets annoying too, if lots of kids are in and out of your house all the time.

Fall is nearly here. I love fall weather!

Sounds like you live in the same type of community as us! In the houses just around us, there are 12 kiddos!
