First of all, the minestrone was awesome… I will be making this again and again… and last time I was at Olive Garden I bought a bottle of their salad dressing, so now we can have our own soup, salad, & breadsticks at home! Yay!

Noah is doing great. It’s been so fun for me to make things for him that he hasn't tried
before, so it's interesting when we go to the grocery store. Of course I am excited to make him Rice Krispie Treats, buy him ice cream cones, and squeeze 4 lbs of lemons to make fresh lemonade at his request- which was dee-lish, by the way!

He also starts kindergarten today!

So, summer has flown by and so has all the time I thought I'd have to catch up on my reading. I am just starting The Memory Keeper's Daughter and welcome your suggestions for other great reads!

I did not splurge on this, but I did get a great deal on a used Rockin Baby Sling on eBay... can't wait for it to arrive!!

Oh, and I told you I'd fill you in on our dog situation... Once Upon A Time we had three miniature pinschers and then two of them (males) decided to 'mark' anything and everything and almost drove hubby & me crazy. It was just too stressful, and marital & household harmony meant more to us than the dogs. I took them to our local animal shelter (no matter how good it was for our sanity, it still wasn't easy) and - God Is So Good - they were taken by the Min Pin Rescue group and supposedly were going to stay in a good foster home and most likely be adopted out together, living Happily Ever After.

We now are enjoying having just one dog and she is enjoying being just one dog among three messy eating little brothers.
