We made it to the KC Zoo this summer on a wonderful cool day, in previous years we always seem to go when it was 90 degrees or hotter. We met up with some friends and had a fun day.

My husband came home from work with cardboard boxes. He laid them down in the garden area and cut holes where he planted the vegetables. We didn't get any straw to cover the boxes and now that the summer is almost over, I think we can live without it.
We picked a zucchini that was 15 inches long and 14 inches all the way around. There are a lot of green tomatoes and we've had a few cucumbers. The thai pepper plant is full and needs to be picked.

I made this rag flag wall hanging, and I think it's needs to be grunged up a little. So it will be getting a nice coffee or tea soak very soon.

This week is World Breastfeeding Week. The metro La Leche League groups had a fundraiser Sunday night at a local children's place. Stephanie made this wonderful cake.

I forgot to take pictures of all the t-shirts and items we made in a Batik for kids coop class but I did get one picture of a friends t-shirts. I found this idea from this blog.

Where did the summer go? Jaime starts back to school on the 19th,Melissa the 20 and Kaitlyn the 21st.

Hi! Alison~

I am your fall swap partner. I have visited your blog and have been trying to get to know your likes and dislikes. I have some great goodies for you already but was wondering what things you don't like, want and what colors are definitely not for you.

I hope to hear from you soon. Enjoy these last few days of summer. I am looking forward to fall. It is my favorite season.
