Here's another random asortememt.

Elijah started 2nd grade last week.

Emily drew all over Bitty. Thankfully she is almost better. She will have to visit the American Girl hospital though to get her eye replaced as some of the stuff we used to get the ink off messed up her eye.

Emily got her hair cut.

This year I just didn't get as many beach pictures. Both kids took to the water with reckless abandon and our camera broke part way through. We ended up taking most of the pictures with Neil's droid. Elijah went to surf camp one morning, Emily actually did a little boogie boarding, and everyone got really really tired.

pre beach

Ok ok I know I'm behind. We were at the beach last week and Elijah just started 2nd grade. I've got to get the beach pictures edited but these are the last few prebeach ones plus the on the way to the beach picture of us waiting for our tire to be replaced post blow out. Thankfully a nice biker pointed it out to us before it was a real disaster and only half of the tread was loose.

We also have...
.. the new lamp that I do not like which replaces the one we broke.
.. the CG live stage. Emily, Elijah, and I had fun.

and some other random shots. Hopefully I"ll get the beach edited in the next day or so.

flipping flicker

This extended break was brought to you by flicker as they felt the need to change their setup making it harder or at least different to post pictures. Here are some highlights.

Summer swim season is over again. Elijah did well. He even won breast stroke at one meet. Oh and the Cary Y totally kicked butt and won the YMCA Triangle Area again this year.

I got myself a batbelt for running which Neil found so funny he needed to take a picture.

I finished Emily's purple back to school dress and her tinkerbell outfit. She is mad that she can't wear them yet.

Our kids passport paperwork has been turned in and no we are not going out of the country.

I've become obsesed with a pattern that is now out of print. The blue dresses is my first attempt and drafiting it. There will definatly be a second muslin but I'm pleased.
