For Father's Day, we rode our bikes to church. And that rolled into a whole summer of riding bikes to church just about every Sunday. It's been quite the adventure with it's ups and downs. The first Sunday we made it to church without anyone yelling, crying, complaining, whining, etc felt like a huge accomplishment. Riding bikes to church has given our kids a fun identity. Plus it's just plain wholesome. It's not convenient. I change my shoes and put on a skirt when we get to church, it takes more time to get to church and home again. But overall it's been worth it. The weather is starting to change and maybe we only had a handful of Sundays left before we drive to church in a car. 

This morning, I stayed home from church (still nursing that flu) with Holly (who threw up twice yesterday). Greta convinced Conor to pull her on the tag-along bike and of course, Maeve rides in style on the handlebars. I loved this little image of 3 of my people. Conor's pretty dedicated!

I recently sewed up this little rollerskate tunic for Maeve from Halloween fabric I had bought last year for costumes. I had just enough for the tunic length, I couldn't squeeze out the dress length. This fabric is so fun, I really like it and maybe I wish I had bought more? I made Maeve's little hair bow too. It's fun to sew little things for this girl. Next up, her birthday dress!

I've made at least 10 dresses for the Oliver and S Rollerskate pattern, but probably somewhere closer to 15. It's the perfect play dress. And while Maeve's tunic is a little large on her (surprise!), this pattern typically fits so nicely. 

Gosh, this girl! Love these little snaps of her.

Greta has only one more soccer game left in this fall season. It's been really fun to watch her play. She's on a new team this year (yay for carpooling!) and it's been a great learning experience for her with an awesome coach and fun friends.

Yesterday, we went to our friends' house and pressed apple cider with them. It was the perfect fall day and wow, pressed cider is so delicious! We had so much fun! My friend, Kristen, made a big batch of cider donuts too. So grateful for the good people in our lives.
