this picture melts my heart.
wearing a backpack, on the porch steps already?
so many new adventures these days.

most of you know that ben started preschool last week.
it was a bit of a transition,
but it seems to be working out well.
lots of fun and learning -
can't wait to hear all about it.  :)

a cool evening walk

thanks to this lovely cool front that came through last night...

we were wearing jackets on our walk tonight - except for ben.  :)
we may have been a bit hasty in wearing an extra layer,
but after this summer the first cool winds of fall feel too good not too!

enjoy the weekend.

sunflower fields and windmills

that's where you find the dove.
or at least that's what i hear.  :)

a happy boy and a proud dad.
they had a wonderful time.
and of course, they did have a little noise "practice" for ben before heading out.

nine months (and a half)

just like everything else lately -
julia's nine month photos are a bit late.
and the photo girl was less than excited about me trying to make her sit still.
so i went with the flow,
and here they are...  

rolling around - and laughing!

what a pretty baby!

playing with ben's kitchen food -

and now the dishes -

get ready!

here comes the drama...

and we're done.  :)
this is the first picture i clicked that morning -
she was going after the camera strap.
