October snapshots (iphone style)

October is almost halfway over.
We're in a good routine and my kiddos have been great about getting up early to get
ready for school
and completing their homework in the afternoons.
 Dare I say this...we are about 10 weeks away from Christmas.
1. Top left. 'Bruce Wayne' in black and white. 2. Grace making
lemon sugar cookies for her classroom (she has become quite the baker).
3. Ballet has started again for Grace. I have finally mastered the ballet bun
for her hair. 4. Gourds and mini pumpkins. 5. Grace with a sequined kitty cat mask.
6. We made a quick trip to Chicago for a girls China friends get together.
7. 'Frenemies' Jack kitty and Zoe dog, they rarely get this close together. Usually Zoe is
chasing the cat. 8. The leaves are starting to fall here. 9. Sweet little farm stand selling pumpkins.
I wish Fall lasted longer than it does, but for now we are savoring every
moment of it.

Welcome Autumn (Sunday Snapshot)

If you stand still outside you can hear it...
 Winter's footsteps, the sound of falling leaves.
~ unknown


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
~ George Cooper, "October's Party"

Grace October Storyboard 2013

Autumn is here in Wisconsin.
This week our yellow leaves popped,
next will be the oranges and reds.

It's my favorite season for many reasons but
as a photographer I notice the light is low in the sky, golden
and delicious in color.
This week I took Grace out to a new location and loved the light in the trees.
I can't get enough of seeing these Fall colors
and spending as much time as we can as a family

Little Boys and Football

Football Will Collage
A Mom's Observations About Flag Football
(Now Will is the first of my 3 children to try flag football,
so it's new too me. These are some things I noticed)
~ There's quite a bit of energy out on that field of little boys
and it's not necessarily going in the right direction
~ Pulling a flag seems to be harder than tackling
~ There is some little boy that cries on every play(after all they're only 7)
~ The favorite play is "RUN!"
Will might be small but he's quite fast.
And it's really been a joy to watch him play.
