Yes, still we are having days of brilliant sun and tender blue skies with perhaps fewer leaves but those few are a glory of scarlet and gold and pale yellow against the evergreens and hollies….We will not have them long, but we have them still as we begin those dark days that lead to Christmas……
Daylight Savings time has ended and this weekend Alice and her family drove up to beautiful Lake Chautauqua and closed up the cottage for another summer.Our 35th summer of owning this place of such happiness.
I have two funny Stephen photos to share….
The first one is him training for American Ninja Warrior, something evidently dear to his heart.
He seems to have the look down pat!
The second, which is my favorite, was taken at the practice for Science Olympiad this afternoon…His brother Nathan is the one competing and he and his partner were working on their project when they were perfectly photo bombed. One of Alice’s friends very accurately called this the “I solemnly swear I am up to no good” face.
