Cleaned up

We're at Cessie's son's wedding. Zack cleans up pretty well, me thinks.

Halloween Club

Halloween Club at KAH. The boy is in the red sweatshirt. They're working on plans for their haunted house.

Zack was coloring in this coloring book at a restaurant last weekend. This page has the faces already drawn on. I was intrigued by how he colored in the one on the bottom. He said it was a devil. I think it resembles a certain presidential candidate.


... Was my view when I woke up this morning.

There is so much that I love about this picture.

I love that these three are such good friends.
That we live in a neighborhood with such good kids.
That they like to hang out at our house.
That they are old enough and responsible enough to flag down the ice cream truck by themselves, and that they used teamwork to do it.
That I just happened to look out the window to see them sitting on the curb like this.
That we live in a neighborhood where they can sit on a curb like this without needing to worry.

I love these moments that make my heart feel full, that let me think that maybe everything will be OK.

Every now and then...

...I get a glimpse of these kids as teen-agers.

(That's his bud Arianna).

School work

I love the picture and story her created!

Third grade

Here we come! Well, went. Since his first day was Monday. So far so good! He likes his teacher, he's in the same class as some of his friends, he's been doing his homework no problem. We're looking forward to another great year!

We went kayaking with Jess today. Even though it poured as soon as we put in, it was a lovely rain and it didn't last the whole time. What a beautiful lake! It reminded me of the archipelago in Sweden. We had a great afternoon!

Who you gonna call?
