He's a picker, she's a grinner

We’ve been going, going, going in the Homiller House these days (just like everyone else, I imagine), but I didn’t want another day to go by without sharing two of the more fun things we’ve done recently.

George and his preschool class took a trip to the strawberry patch last week.

The strawberries had just started turning, so we had trouble finding red ones to pick; but honestly, these kids could have just run up and down the lanes for an hour and half and not cared a bit.  They just loved being together and outside.

A hayride is always a big hit.

Frances had her first-ever sleepover at our house.

The girls slept in the guest room together, so Frances thought it was appropriate to provide name tags.

Carissa, her best friend since infanthood, came over for an evening of adventures.  Frances had spent the night at her house earlier this year and desperately wanted to return the favor.

It is amazing to me that after several months, these girls can pick up right where they left off.  And who are we kidding, George was in hog heaven.

With the rainy weather, an afternoon at our local indoor pool was perfect!

Carissa was a little wary of Marshall initially, but by the end of her visit she was petting him and chasing him around the house—pretty standard Frances and George dog activities.

Chef Daddy made breakfast (and took this picture)
The girls slept (maybe) 7 hours and arose around 5:30am Sunday morning.  Now that I think about, that probably explains my complete and utter exhaustion this morning.  And I don’t think I was the only one.

Carissa, only a few hours after leaving our house.  If there is anything us Homillers are good at, it is exhausting your children!

Happy Monday, everyone!
