A Trip to the Zoo, and Other Stuff, Too

Hello, My Dear Readers,

We've been harvesting quite a few beautiful all-blue (more like metallic purple) potatoes from our garden lately, which has been a real blessing. It helps make up for the tomatoes that are STILL green and it's almost September! We've had a few zucchini and patty pan squash, too (I'd show you some pictures, but our poor camera had a close encounter with the tile floor!).

I hope that you who have grown gardens are reaping the blessings now. Surely there is nothing more rewarding, save growing children, than growing one's own food!

Here are some pictures (from before our camera's accident) you might enjoy of our recent outing to the local zoo:

"All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small.

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all."

All the monkeys aren't in the zoo!

After seeing the animals, the girls had fun at the playground.

My blessed oldest girls, always willing to carry Frankie when Mother needs a rest.

I pray that my children will each retain a love of nature and healthful outdoor activities throughout their lives.

Blessings to you and yours today,


"And God saw everything that he had made, and it was very good." ~Gen. 1:31
