This was the beginning of New Student Orientation week. Philip went back to school on the 11th for Faculty/Staff week so we're getting back into the groove of being on a school schedule. My sister-in-law, Charity, is here to help her sister, Chelsea, settle in at GBS. Monday morning I peeled the cucumbers for cinnamon pickles and put them in the lime water. I cooked four pints of blackberries and extracted the juice to make jelly later then began working on a cake for my nephew Alex's party. Alex turned one at the end of July but we celebrated with the Brown's and his Grandma Fredrick on Monday night. Theme: Monkeys and bananas.
