We are officially 2 weeks in to our back to school routine over here (Fletcher still hasn’t started though)! Lilly is happy with her class and teacher, loves her soccer team, and is making new friends! I know it’s going to be a great year. To celebrate going back to school Lilly & Fletcher wanted to invite their friends Farris and Charlie over for a pancake party (Fletcher’s request). Cuteness ensued.




I don’t know what we would have done this summer without our Nutone Haven Mosquito Repellent System (remember when I wrote about here?). It’s so nice to be able to use our courtyard and pool and not get eaten up. And I thought I was the worst about mosquitos, but you should hear my kids complain about it! The whole town should be wired with this stuff. Our backyard barbecues run so much smoother now.





Four fixtures protect an average size courtyard or patio. We (and by “we” I mean “Josh”) installed 8 fixtures to ensure our pool area was protected, too. They can be installed in the ground using the included hardware, or attached to a decking or post with the optional mounting flange. You can find more info about installation in this video here. Each Haven fixture releases an odorless, invisible mosquito repellent that won’t harm plants, flowers, or lawns. The cartridges last for a full season and are easy to replace. And you’ll know when it’s time to replace your cartridge because a green indicator light will blink.




The Haven Backyard Lighting & Mosquito Repellent System is a set of landscape fixtures that provide season long, effective protection from mosquitos. Within 15 minutes of turning it on it clears the area of mosquitos, and it’s odorless and silent! You can schedule your system to turn on with the timer control system by time of day or at dusk with the photo sensor.





The girls invited their doll friends to join the pancake party :)

We’re sad to see summer ending but I’m anxious for fall! It’s my favorite season of all.

After lunch the kids jumped in the pool for the rest of the afternoon, clear of mosquito bites and happy. I highly recommend that you check out Nutone’s Haven Backyard Mosquito Repellent System!
