There Will be No Monday Mission Smackdown

Painted Maypole and I have finally figured out the whole Monday Mission Muddle and have decided rather than alternate hosting the September round, she will finish out this month, then we'll continue on into October, when I will take over. So if you are interested in paticipating this month, please head on over to Painted Maypole's blog for the topics. I know I will!

Monday Mission: "What I Did This Summer"

Today's Mission titled "What I Did this Summer" had me remembering elementary school essay assignments. Curiously, I was transported back to 3rd grade...

What I Did this Summer
by The Flying Mum

This summer we did lots of things. It was fun. We flew on a plane. We went to Illinois. Then we drove to the Great Smokey Mountains. They were great but not very smokey ha ha. We went for a walk and saw some beautiful butterflies

and a strange bug.

We also saw a mushroom

and a frog or maybe it is a toad.

and some bear poo.

Later in the summer we drove to Canada for camping with some family. It was hot. It was very dusty. My favorite part was swimming in the lake. There was no showers. We were there for 4 nights. When we got home I took a shower.
This summer I planted some things for a vegetable garden.

We ate lettuce and turnips from this garden.

We also ate radishes.

When we were in the Great Smokey Mountains some deer ate the flowers off of the tomatoes and potatoes and raspberries. The tomatoes and potatoes and raspberries had to make new flowers. Now we have tomatoes and potatoes and there are some raspberries growing yum. We get to eat the ripe tomatoes and hoo boy are they good.

I think it was a pretty good summer. I like summer. School is good too.

The End

Painted Maypole is also hosting a round of Monday Missions. This Monday was a horoscope theme, and hers was awesome! (I have yet to read the other entries, but will be doing so asap.)

When you pull up my blog, does the "Flying Mum" banner stick out of the frame on the right side? We have a wide screen on our laptop and the banner is nicely centered in the frame when I look at it here at home, but when I've pulled up my blog at my folks' or my in-laws, the banner sort of hangs over the edge a little on the right. I'm just wondering if I need to go back and crop it some more. And if I even remember how to do that. *sigh* And I'm freaking out about the Monday Mission I'm supposed to post today. Later. Much, much later.
