September in Numbers: the month that couldn't be measured



Oh September, you came in like a lion with your back to school craziness but you went out like a sweet, tender hearted lamb.  It was a month full of bounty, of harvesting the garden and losing all counter space to an abundance of tomatoes.  In September we spent countless days with family, celebrating and relishing in the presence of the people who will always have your back.  Last month brought routine and school activities.  49 new faces for me to meet and nurture and 2 new teachers for my kids to be inspired by.  Many new school activities for the kids, new classmates and new experiences.



1 great experience learning to make dill pickles with mom, using Gram's recipe.



Just the beginning of the tomato adventure.  Once unpacked, they would take over the island, the table and all counters until the end of the month.  I made 4 batches of ketchup, 9 quarts of tomato sauce, 4 freezer bags of spaghetti sauce and 5 containers of hamburger soup, despite giving away half of them.



Lucia really enjoyed me taking her pictures because her outfits (all styled by her) have been so adorable.

It was a month that could be recorded in numbers, however as I write this post I am doing a rush packing job because I'm off on a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, last minute trip to NYC.  So sorry for the quick post. Why don't you check out what my blog friends did with numbers instead?
