The Progression of Hair

This kid's hair grows so quickly, I can scarcely keep up with it. Today I cut it short, for a change. Let me know what you think...should I keep it short, or let it grow tossley and floppy. I just can't get over his teeth, and I love this smile. (especially the last picture...what a cheese ball).

Blue Sabbath

Tonight Colson has his first taste of Blue. Some friends served him Cool-aid for their Sabbath feast. He loved it, and wore the blue hew of mustache for proof.

An outing with friends

first we hung out with the grizzlys, yes, the bears. Off to the slides, and swings, and climbing structures. a picnic lunch in perfect weather: sun-spots dancing on our skin and sandwiches and peaches through the leaves of the swaying trees. topped off with a little local-crafted ice-cream, a few cheese curds, and finally a nap.....

and we're only 1/2 way through the day.

wow, and to think that I could be a working mom, and someone else could be with my child, and not enjoying it, while i was working, and not enjoying that either....hmmmm, i think we're right where God has intended.

I saw my first multi-colored leaf falling from the sky.
The faint exhale of chill.
It's in the air. It's in my skin.
It's coming.

Finally Caught up with the Bandwagon

KC and I are late bloomers. We're behind the times I suppose. But we're making up for lost time and this summer have hit the books hard. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is nearing it's end (Book 5). and I'm ravenous for more while wanting to savor these first-time Potter experiences. We've been listening to it on audio-book in the evenings, not just read, but performed by Jim Dale. He's a brilliant storyteller and makes the characters come alive.

Beware: Entertaining Neighbors Unaware

Last night I put Colson down to bed, and on my way to take a shower grabbed his monitor to make sure he was falling asleep without any glitches. I turned on the monitor to loud static. His monitor must have come unplugged in his room, and I was not going to go in there to fix it. Just for the sake of it I tried the other channel. To my suprise I could hear voices, as clear as day, coming from the monitor. (It shouldn't be a come as a shock, I live in aparment with lots and lots of young families). It was another family putting their 2 young girls to bed. I listened to the mom and dad getting them ready and threatening them:

mom: "Tell her if she doesn't go to sleep, then NO trike tomorrow."

Dad, to little girl: "If you don't go to sleep then NO trike tomorrow, do you understand?"

Feeling awkward about listening, I turned the monitor off and took my shower. After my shower I turned on the monitor just for the sake of it. (This is the closest I get to reality-TV ok people?) I tuned in just in time to hear the mom losing her mind:


Well, I thought this was hysterical. I don't know what happened with the spankings, but the mom must have left the room because I heard silence for a few seconds then a little voice starts in...

Little Voice: "Hi", she says very cheerfully. "Hi, what's your name?"

an even smaller voice: "Cinderella."

At this, I smiled, giggled a little bit, was thankful I don't know who these people are, and turned off the monitor.
