The June gloom came in August this year and we have had many a day with a foggy morning and breezy afternoon. I am not complaining though because we had an amazing June and July and I wouldn't trade it at all. But with the cooler weather we have done some more inside activities. One night I dumpster dove for some carboard boxes and made a kitchen for Hallel and a car for Simeon. They were super fun to make and didn't cost a thing. I used old material, old playdough, fruit baskets, a silver mixing bowl for the sink, and some foil for the burners. I got most of the ideas out of Parents magazine and then improvised some of my own. It was a fun project. Of course the next day they were destroyed and by the end of the week totally trashed. I love how being a mom keeps me humble in the most simple matters of life. But something I did notice throughout the week was how they made it their own toy and interpreted it through their own eyes. They had a blast and that's all that I hoped for anyways.

The past week I've noticed that every time Lita cries that Simeon says to her,"it's ok Lita I'm here, I'm right here." It is the sweetest thing ever. Unfortunately, Lita doesn't know what he is saying but she sure does love her brother. I just keep wondering how many times the Lord has said, "it's ok Stacy I'm right here, don't worry or cry."
