Look what we found!:
Theres no denying it now...
Hurrah! Fall has taken victory over the summer heat yet again!
To celebrate, we slaughtered the king sunflower.
(Well, actually, he was mostly wilted on his own.)
LOOK HOW GIANT!:
The kids managed to keep busy plucking sunflower seeds out of the mighty beast one at a time with a pair of tweezers for the better part of a half hour... so I seized the golden opportunity and sneaked into my bedroom to answer the call of a pile of a particularly needy heap of laundry. I was silently commending myself for the genius and creativity of my afternoon activity for the wee ones, until I looked up and saw THIS out my bedroom window...
But even so, it couldn't kill my good mood yesterday... because I spotted Fall around the corner.
And my kids seem almost as excited as I am.
