Weekly Round Up - with tomatoes

This week has been full, in a really good satisfying way.  

Here is my life. This Week. In pictures:


All the pictures in this post were taken with Instagram.  I love Instagram.  Follow me to see more great pics. I'm hollyoshesky.

This has been a super wet summer so far.  We got so much rain on Monday the street flooded.

Little Dude and Zippy enjoyed the structure of homeschool.  It just really makes the day go smoother.  This week Little Dude worked on counting with an egg carton and with clothespins.  Both help train those fine motor muscles.

Wednesday we celebrated my Mother-in-law's birthday.  My youngest nephew enjoyed the chocolate cake a lot.  {This is my favorite picture this week}

We got our first tomatoes. In case you were wondering, they were as tasty as they look.  They lasted for about 3.5 seconds after this picture was taken.  Zippy's sweet banana peppers are also coming along great.  All that rain is really helping out the garden.

Zippy had her last appointment in Ann Arbor for her finger.  It is healing, but will take years, (yes years) to completely heal.  She can ride her bike and swim in the lake again, though, and that makes her happy.  This whole process took so much longer than any of us expected.

After we saw the doctor we headed over to Matthaei Botanical Gardens where we enjoyed the conservatory, the Bonsai garden and the children's garden.  The hubs took a vacation day, so we thought it would be a good idea to do something fun with the family.

  1. The flower pictures are amazing. Great job. And glad she is healing well

  2. Oh. Your vegetables are lovely. My garden has bombed this year, I'm so jealous.

  3. Glad Zippy's healing :-) I agree about having some structure in the day. It makes everyone's day go smoother.

  4. Hi there! I'm visiting from Collage Friday. Lovely little veggies you've got there! I hope and pray that Zippy's finger heals properly sooner rather than later!

  5. Our fruit are just starting to come in. It's so great to be able to eat straight from the garden!
