Let's catch up, with some pictures...
The weekend is precious to Max, now that he's at school all week. He likes to give Maria rides down the driveway on the extra long Gravity board.
Here's William enjoying a cooled down Fall evening. I like this picture of my camera shy boy.
Last weekend's mellow fun has been replaced with heavy lifting and lots of hauling, 'cause it's moving time. We put everyone to work, even Maria the Denim Princess had to heave-ho! After a full day of packing and loading we estimate we are about one 5th finished...
We still haven't named our new house. "Garage Mahal" is the foremost contender. William submitted "Generic House." Some of the inspiring features include faux granite columns, three fireplaces and many giant spiders that descend from the trees. We LOVE that the kitchen is downstairs. We love that there are actual bedrooms. And the view? Well, we can clearly see all the other garages in our quiet neighborhood, and from the end of the street we can look across the way to HomeDepot and Barnes and Noble.
Let us take a moment and acknowledge that "the view" must sometimes be seen with the heart. I see happy, healthy children, doing well in school and life, loved and loving. I see comfort and warmth, shelter and light. I see a safe place to play and rest. And I see Geoff's brand new big screen TV... oh, ya, life is still good.
