Frame-A-Day Week 38: 9/17-9/23

Wow, less than 100 photos to go in this Project 365 as we hit day 265 this week. It's the homestretch!

September 17--This Time, It's Official--Earnest started the fall session of T-ball at the YMCA last Saturday. Like summer, Chretien wound up as coach for the yellow team. Unlike summer, however, this time it's official as he even got the T-shirt.

September 18--Let's Go for a Hayride--We went for our annual apple picking adventure today.  We had to ride the hay ride to get to the orchard with the pears, and we stocked up on our apples while we were there as well.  The kids got a kick out of the hay ride, as it was the first time we had ridden it.

September 19--Back to the Boards--The renovation at our regular rink is complete enough so Trust could start skating lessons there last week. She is in the equivalent of gamma now, and the Monday night class is similar to what she experienced this summer with only two or three other skaters in it. How nice to have a semi-private lesson.

September 20--Rolling Along with Roley--The little Bob the Builder cars were received by Trust over five years ago...and while they've been left outside and generally abused by three kids now, they still work well enough for Imp to have fun with Roley today.

September 21--Breakfast Bagel--Imp has discovered bagels and asks for one for breakfast quite often.  We obliged him this morning.

September 22--Book Bingo--Today was an early release Thursday, and the Main Library was having Book Bingo for the older kids.  It was wonderful to see Earnest in a pseudo academic setting, raising his hand to answer the clue to Blueberries for Sal, paying attention to his Bingo card and winning prizes just like the older kids, including Trust.  He's growing up.

September 23--Bedtime Brothers--The boys were having fun with the parrot puppet right before bed tonight. I love seeing them play together.


  1. Trust looks so cute at the rink! That sounds like so much fun!

  2. I love these. Looks like such a fun week. How awesome that your kids are so involved in activities.

  3. What a fabulous week you all had. Once in the homestretch we must begin to contemplate our future; will we continue or live on our past glories? It is a good thing we have weeks to decide.

  4. Hi!
    Great snapshots! I've always wanted to learn how to ice skate. Love the bagel shot. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

    LOVE that you are ice skating already. FUN!

  6. Love the ice skating shot. Something I have only done once in my life and would love to do more of. :)
