Sam and I roasted the pumpkin seeds she so gleefully dug out of the pumpkin flesh last night. Tasty.
The circle of moms at the weekly homeschool parkday. Notice the orange tree aflame in the corner.
AC heads the ball for the Rivanna Rogues, who went on to beat the Goaldiggers 5-0.
And there was a cake! I think conferences should always include cake.
Sam and I text message and send photos to each other the night before the SCBWI Mid-Atlantic conference in DC.
Every week at Sam’s soccer practice I am amused by the contrast of the field: american footballers (all boys) on one side and european footballers (all girls) on the other. And that’s a pitcher’s mound in the center of the shot. The girls end up having to play soccer on the baseball field :-/
The raspberries are finally ripening!
French Club played card games today.
And at the top of the driveway where I will hopefully not back the car into it. Still looking for a buyer. We had one a couple of months ago but the deal fell through when we failed to get the pool table out of the basement. Now it’s out of the basement (thanks to AC’s ingenuity) but so far no one (including our original buyer) is interested. Maybe we can make outdoor billiards a new craze?
Sam played two soccer games today and I cheered myself hoarse.
Can’t wait till they ripen!

Sam takes a throw-in in the Red v. Orange game.
