Pretty and Happy
We have been busy with appointments, were able to carve out an afternoon to drive over to visit with Molly at college. She's been working, studying and getting used to the new normal at school and we thought she might need a good meal. The girls miss her terribly.
Raising girls is full of emotion, some fulfilling, some draining, some challenging. But worth all the struggles to see them make choices toward dignified womanhood.
We stopped by Sam Houston park while driving around town. Old Texas homes are so cool, the wood, the smells, the antiques. I can imagine him many children running around, climbing trees. I bet his homestead was full of life.
His Law Office
One of the homes
There are so many more buildings to explore on another visit.
The girls thought the tree throne was entertaining.
Her Abe Lincoln impersonation.
Bookcases are the focus of Auntie Leila's post today with the link up.
We have so many windows, we put bookcases where we could. A long wall in the den, all full, some droopy, many in need of attention. I had no idea how bad they looked until I took a photo.
In den- the majority of literature and history books
In guest bedroom- mostly religious, art and music study.
These are my special books, and not really hidden away because it's the first room past the den, open down the hall.
In girls room- most picture books
Hidden in back corner of my office- messy curriculum and games.
Although not a shelf, it's my favorite box kept in reach of the couch to keep books we are reading now.
