Claire finished her soccer season. Love those girls she’s played with for so many seasons now. Max finished his club volleyball season. Dave and I have had so much fun watching him gain so much confidence on the court. Oh man we love this sport. …and love these crazy, good boys too. Birthday lunch with friends: French “International Night.” (We don’t do this every Wednesday like I dreamed it up to be, but we do it whenever we can. Still love it.) .We had baguette Panini sandwiches and sparkling apple juice. The french music we looked up is what really made it though. Some of my favorite girls:(…who really can’t drive but who were posing like they can…) Gingerbread houses at school with Lu. We found the funniest home videos…I’ll have to post them some time. We laughed long and hard about those things and watched them over and over again. The number of books I’m in the middle of reading on my nightstand is getting a little bit out of control. The bike brigade on Fridays and Saturdays: Pajama Day and “Doughnuts with Dads” at school. Claire often leaves me nice notes on my bed. I love them. Especially when they come with money! 🙂 Some service for a friend who’s Dad passed away at Christmas. Our hearts have been aching so much for this family. A sliver of our beautiful world. …and one more (it is Fall here). I’m so grateful for it.
