This month has come and gone and with it, has brought tons of activities, fun and adventure! We wrapped up our Calvert Curriculum (the fun stuff-art, science projects, etc.)…and I engaged in a few sewing projects. We also tie-dyed all the white stuff left in our home! You can read about that fun craft HERE and HERE. The first of the month, we had a visit from our buddy the Barbarian…you can read about that HERE. And at the end of the month, we embarked on another trip to see our family and friends in Colorado. There was Yoga (as per the usual)…and I took a new approach to the foods that I put in my body. It was a great month!
I repurposed a dress into the tunic above and this apron below. Sorry for the blurry pics.
I repurposed an old ruined tank top into headbands for the girls and myself.
I altered a pair of my leggings to fit MHG.
Building a “Shapes Castle”.
Cinderella learns to use scissors…Lord help me. Hopefully she doesn’t butcher her hair like her sister did at this age!
Our tie-dye stuff.
Learning to write her numbers.
Our Oak Meadow 3rd grade curriculum arrived! I also ordered the 2nd grade reading books…which she read in a week.
Picking Dandelions to make homemade cough syrup for this Fall.
You’d think I never let them eat donuts or something??? (I don’t. It was donut day in the office.)
We finally got some rain…albeit cold…but rain nonetheless!
So this was a suitable fortune for me…the top was mine, bottom was MHG’s…but I jacked it.
I was sticking to a primarily Vegan lifestyle before this month, but I didn’t always feel fantastic. I thought I’d give Raw Vegan a shot, and holy cow.
There are no words to describe how amazing I feel these days. I feel like I could take on the whole Universe.
I mainly follow the 80-10-10 lifestyle…mostly raw vegan…and with that comes eating a LOT of bananas.
I eat at least 10 a day…I buy organic from Sam’s…typically 80 each week.
Finding room for them in an RV was fun too, but Nic helped me pull together a great setup to store ALL the fruit!
Also, National Banana Lover’s Day was August 27th!
I drink a TON of 10 banana smoothies. They’re fast to make and easy going down.
And when I’m not eating a million and one bananas, I’m eating a LOT of fruit and raw veggies.
Occasionally, I have some nuts or seeds.
The girls don’t really eat like me…but sometimes they happily dive into their own plates of similar foods…with some omnivore extras.
And I love me some potatoes, root veggie, brown rice and gluten-free pasta…but only for dinner.
That concept aligns more with the “Raw Til 4” lifestyle.

And of course…the smoothies. Always the smoothies. Lots of green ones especially.
The end of the month brought with it a super spontaneous trip back to see everyone in Colorado Springs.
It WAS Labor Day after all.
And it was SUPER spontaneous. We decided the day before to make the trip, lol.
The next blog post up will be our trip back to see everyone…these were just teaser pics.
And as always, thanks for reading!
