I can't believe the change! Raising children is an amazing experience. They grow so fast. Maddie started first grade today. This will be the first time she'll be gone all day. It's kind of bitter sweet. The girls have been arguing all summer, so the peace will be nice. However, Maddie wont be my little baby anymore (she'll always be my baby, just not little). She's into fashion and clothes. I was surprised she actually wore this dress, because most of the school clothes she picked out were black. She even picked out a blazer (this floored me). Below is the picture I took of her on the first day of kindergarten (in front of the same tree).
Lilly will be starting preschool next week. I think she'll be the type to act like my little baby until she's married.
She's already rolling her eyes at me! It's too early for that.
Last night I stayed up late freezing tomatoes. I'm trying something different this year. I thought if I flash freeze them as they come in from the garden, maybe it will be easier when I go to make sauce and can them. I'll keep you updated on that. Canning is so much work! If any one has any good suggestions, I would love to hear them.
I do have to tell you the Roma tomatoes are my favorite to work with. They have grown beautifully, minimal seeds to remove and skins come off easy.
Have a restful day!
