So Long Sweet Summer

Suddenly it is Fall in Logan -- Landon's back to school,  Ellie and Owen are bundling up with a blanket on our morning runs, our early-changing corner trees are beautifully red, our garden is full of  vegetables  -- Fall is arriving!

Lately --

Setting up the backyard pool (that I promised I would never have!) - Landon's favorite evening activity when our creative work finally got the pool warm enough :)

 More than enough sick days for all of us!

 And some happy relaxing time too

 Rocking and rolling with his favorite cool cars

A last day of summer break lunchtime picnic in the super secret forest adjacent to the Stream of Italy

 Farewell to our Landon on the first day of first grade!

The best little running buddy I could ever ask for -- who sweetly sings me lullabyes along our route :)

Sweet (mischievous) kiddos asleep in Ellie's toddler bed (and Ellie cuddling her books to sleep!)

Working hard on our park strip (and Owen putting himself to sleep for naptime :)
