The kid is back in town – woo hoo! Cooper Doo, I’ve missed you! In the month since I’ve seen him his hair has gotten even redder and he’s gotten quite strong. And he’s busy! Squirm, wiggle, kick, grab, squirm, smile, frown, wiggle. He’s still the sweetest, happily sitting on Daddy Bowen’s lap while we ate our dinner of roasted chicken, grilled fresh corn, and a salad of green beans, tomatoes, cukes, basil, and fresh mozzarella. (Recipe posted in comments, below.)
Gorgeous day by the pool, and evening on the deck, most definitely to be savored because fall is right around the corner. You can see it in the muted green leaves and deeper afternoon shade, and smell it in the evening air. Sigh. One week left before school starts – is that possible? We finally got Nathan’s teacher assignment so we can make our school supply run this week. Wow. My head’s not in it, I’ve got to switch gears here.
It sure has been an incredible summer.
