Late Afternoon Light


 Later, unhappy at the unreasonable constraints
 Can we leave NOW??

Soccer Practice

The girl spent the ENTIRE time running up and down the side walk and trying to get into the parking lot to check the air pressure in everyone's tires, so this is the only shot of the boy.

Checking out the landscaping, just like her mommy.

This is the photo I am MOST proud of -
That's my baby, climbing down the step curb by herself,
just like a big girl.

Yet more flashback.

Have completely fallen off the truck but the camera is recharged & ready for soccer practice tonight. 
In the meantime, here's The Boy, visiting Gigi four years ago.  More visits coming soon!

More from Saturday

What were they all looking at?
I'll spare Gigi the close up shot of the snake, but lookit the cute little frog!
The boy was surprisingly not too interested in the crawly things.
He's more of a ladies man.

More Penguins (at the bottom)

I have to go to school AGAIN?

She officially has a first word:  Happy. 
As in Happy Baby.
Technically it might be "Baby" without the first 'B', but I prefer Happy.
Because it's damn appropriate.

I should photoshop out the dog hair on Penguin but if I'm too lazy to vacuum,
I'm definitely too lazy to Photoshop.

This, for the blissfully uninformed, is a Puffer.  Pet to Penguins on the the boy's favorite internet site. 
He took about 25 photos for posterity of his new precious puffer (yeah, I know, couldn't resist)
& would like to formally thank Mama for the gift.  His penguin's name is Freddie.

Busy celebrating!

Sorry, been busy celebrating working

First soccer game of the year!
Fancy footwork
"I'm coming after YOU buddy!"

Coach:  Where's the goal?
If you look close, someone's arm is not like the others

If I just stand here & look cute, no one will notice that.

(In the garden. Not the show.  Nor the... nevermind).

Contemplating the role of poisen ivy in the Universe.
Our little vagabond

We hadn't been up on the hill in, um, a whole season. 
But it was green & the neighbors didn't complain.
Nonetheless it looks like Seymour is plotting his next meal.
Busy day - the big dogs got a bath too.  This one escaped... for now.
