Happy Birthday, Brad!

Another year older! Happy birthday, Brad!

Autumn in the Wald

This is one of my favorite recent photos of Madeline and Jack.

This time of year is beautiful around here in the forest. We're so lucky to be surrounded by hundreds of miles of forest. Here are a few snapshots of our recent walk through the wald.

Who's older here?

Always an adventure - finding a deer blind, or more likely a wild boar blind, along the pathway.


I had to post this photo of Jack's soccer uniform to say how much I love my stain remover!
Each Saturday I spend 1 hour scrubbing this "white" jersey clean! These days it seems each 3 hour soccer game is rainy and cold...and muddy. You think this one is bad, you should have seen him last week - all you could see were the whites of his eyes! He loves it!

Pumpkins, pumkins, pumpkins

Trying to get caught up on some blogging and picture posting. Here are a few photos from our trip to Ludwigsburg last month. Notice the warm, sunny day - a novelty around here!

Palace grounds

Annual kuerbis (pumpkin) festival

Notice how tall the kids are getting! Madeline stands at 5 feet and Jack 4'11''!

Finally a picture of Brad and I together!
