Wrapping up the week...Don't mind us while we summer a little longer.

{Sophia}

Most of the kids in this country went back to school this week.
Not us. As I've written herehere and here ....I don't like early school starts.
I know not everyone had a choice...I'm thankful we do!
....and we will start in September.

Jeff and I are leaving our kids behind for the weekend.
I have work to do in the city and we're getting together with some friends.

I have been sooo excited to have time alone with my favorite person on the planet!!!
{that would be Jeff...wink}

....but now that it's the day of, I get all nervous about leaving my kids.
Even though they'll be in good hands...I turn into worry queen of America.
So now I'm all stressed.

However...come Monday I'll want this weekend back! and my husband here.
Ha! Funny how we let ourselves torture ourselves.

Have a fabulous weekend.

p.s. I put the girls names under the photos that they took and edited.
They are very into photography and using my camera. Ha!

Hello little blog, ten days later.after the fair.after the birthdays.


Savino's Brick Oven spent last week at the county fair.
The guys made pizzas all week long.
The wives (and nana and grandpa and grandma) made dough during the day and
then walked kids around the fair until way, way, waaaaaaay past their bedtime.
The papa made all the Italian sausage.

The kids thought it was the greatest week ever!

The girls entered a bunch of projects...
Allison won...
First Place for muffins.
Second Place for brownies
Third place for a crotchet project.

Sophia won...
Second Place for a still life drawing {her cousin won first!}
Third Place for black and white drawing.


The tractor tires were one of the highlights..Ha!

The cousins...they are all so blessed to be part of a big family.
It's funny how to them, everyone all the time is part of life.

We went to pick up our fair projects and more than half my family was there picking up their things.
I love it! It's nice to have so many people in my life.



His brothers took him to the truck shoot out one evening...he thinks he's big stuff.




What fair is complete without cotton candy and snow cones?
They are a must....for the kids. ;)



I could eat our pizza everyday and never, EVER tire of it!
It's my favorite...you guys have to try it.

Wrapping up the week....with no mom guilt, some really good songs! and God needs our wisdom...oh wait, He actually doesn't.


How was your week? I can't believe it's August already, can you?

Our garden is {almost} in full force. We are watching those heirloom tomatoes closely!
I can't wait to make my summer soups and tomato pie! Soon..Soon!

I wrote THIS a couple of years ago on my blog...I forgot all about it!
....I was reminded this Monday when I read THIS article.
Thought you moms could use a little encouragement as you head into the weekend.
You are loved.


God needs our wisdom ...oh wait, He actually doesn't.
{don't read if you don't understand satire...wink}



Jeff and I are always, always on the hunt for new music.
We have spent many a high school dates scouring Tower Records {remember that store?!}
searching high and low for new artists.

{Is it embarrassing that we had a collection of over 1,000 cd's
on or shelf at one point?}

Anyway...we now have kids that do some finding for us...it's great!
..they know what we like....and I can't get enough of these guys!

I downloaded the album after Alex had me listen. I've been playing it all week.
They are seven siblings ...and they are amazing together!

Song#1
Song#2

...and I think this is my favorite at the moment.
You know what...their whole album great! Haha.

Have a Fabulous weekend!!!
