Fungus Forest

Hiking at Caesar's Head 

Look up!

Look at my hiking buddies.

Julianna scales the walls of the Devil's Icebox



We stayed on the red trail.

We did not try out the Dismal trail.


Anyone know what this is?

Wait for it...

Spore Firework!

Mushrooms of every color!

A mouse with a cane?

Ps(3)sst...Pass the Tissues

What is this hard boxy thing protruding from the side pocket of my purse?!?!

It is something adorable sneakily planted by that good buddy of ours, Jo.  Jess will use them to aid with the end-of-summer blues and to not have to share with 20something 5th graders all wanting an excuse to get out of their seats.  I think I will use one now as I am overcome with the sentiments of friendship!

In other news, Daron made a new friend...

Documenting his gamer score of 53,693 as he trades in the X-Box for a shiny new PS3.  Daron, you are a video game inspiration!  We wish many days of joy and slaughter ahead!

Adendem (from Jessie):  More tissues in the mail today!  I must complain a lot about running out of Kleenex, or I just have  really thoughtful friends!  Probably both! Thanks, Laura!

Bouquets of Freshly Sharpened Pencils

School supply shopping with Mrs. Oliver and Mrs. Howe.  Glad I opted to stay home.
In the Civic: One boxed desk, an ottoman, 3 bean bag chairs, 40 something pencil boxes, four times that many folders (1 cent each), a million other classroom bargains, and three overly eager teachers.  At least eager about the shopping if not the start of school.
Nevermind that Jess couldn't see anything coming from her right side and couldn't shift into reverse.  I suppose it was a productive day.
