Summer is winding down now, with the cooler air and rain of fall rolling in. No more hanging my laundry out on the line if I want it to dry in a timely manner. We haven't used fabric softener or dryer sheets in years due to cloth diapering (they can cause build-up and repelling issues) but now that we're done with diapers we could go back...except that I have about a 10% success rate of actually remembering to put something in the dryer and I never remember to buy liquid fabric softener.

Ashlyn started asking that when she was about 2 and she never stopped; as a special bonus she's taught it to her little sister so now it's a never-ending chorus.
With back-to-school in full swing, I was thrilled to review the Boho Read more [...]
Last week I was worrying about how my little girl would do in school this week. She doesn't actually start class until Thursday, but on Tuesday we had a meeting with her teacher in her new classroom. I asked Ashlyn if I could take a picture of her outside the school and this is what she did.
