All Hallow's Eve

Another round of trick-or-treating is in the books—for the four youngest. Luke and Bridget spent the evening at a contra dance. Here's the rundown on identities/aliases: Henry is Van Gogh, Jack is Obie Wan Kenobi, Luke is a cyborg cowboy, Stella is a ninja, Bridget is Hermione from Harry Potter, and Sam is clashing.

Carving Party

The kids and a couple of their friends decided that carving pumpkins is a good way to spend the night before Halloween.

Luke picked up a croquet set at the L.L. Bean employee store earlier this week, and the kids have been enjoying it.

She's Something Else

I think the look in her eye comes with the hat.

Good Night, Kitty

Stella spends most of her life barefoot, but with winter coming on, she decided she needed warm slippers. These little beauties are keeping her toes toasty — for now. Knowing her like I do, I expect them to be forgotten in week.

We got a few hours of sunshine this afternoon, and I just happened to be in the right place when it showed.

Out for a Spin

A few months ago, Luke, Bridget, Henry, and some of their friends started going contra dancing. Sam and I tagged along to tonight's event, because my friend Chris was doing the calling. We've known each other since high school and try to stay in touch, but it's been years since we've seen one another in real life. She was very surprised to see me, and we didn't have much time to catch up, but seeing Chris was lovely. (The group shot was taken by Lorelei Tyce; she's the one in the blue sweater.)

I managed to get Stella in front of the camera today.

Going Wide

I took out my fisheye lens today.

Autumn in Maine

The sun was shining and the trees are beautiful, so I took a little drive.

Easy Grammar

Today, Sam worked on predicate adjectives.

Perhaps I'll call this "Bird Girl with a Bow."

Luke and Jack

These two don't spend a ton of time together, but laughter is generally involved when they do.
