Late Beauty

Tomorrow is the first day of October, but roses are still blooming in my flower beds.

Got It

For weeks, I've been planning on photographing this gorgeous maple near the center of town, but I could never quite time it right (lighting-wise) — until today.

There's just something about playing outside when it's almost too dark to see anything.

The Hengineer

Another of my kids has a blog. Over at Hengineering a Life, Henry writes about things that interest him: mostly cars. These are two of his recent drawings.

After Stella's ballet class, I took a quick detour and turned on the Dramatic Tone filter.

My Main Character

The Call Jessica chose for this week is Character, so I imagined what Dennis would be like if I made him a character in a novel.

Chasing the Sun

This evening, Sam and I jumped in the minivan and went to find the orange sky I had seen above the trees. Unfortunately, we were too late.

Stella (and the rest of us) had a fun day. Dennis has the week off and the weather was gorgeous, so we decided to make up our Labor Day Field Trip (which we didn't take because it was raining). We toyed with the idea of visiting the Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens again, but decided at the last minute to check out Fort Popham (which we'd never visited) and Popham Beach (which is a glorious place to be when the rest of the world is back in school).
