There is no mistaking fall in the air now. Last night was all about wool socks, fleece pants, and hot, hot soup. I would have made our first fire of the year, but didn’t get home until too late because I was at a class.Today, I am intentionally using the oven to heat things a bit, as well as try roasting what is probably my last batch of tomatoes before a frost hits.
Anyways, I guess it is time to finish posting and organizing pics from the summer. We are starting way back in the end of June/beginning of July when my “besty” Jenn was here with her fam for her little brother Chris’ wedding.
We had a wonderful day at the river where we grew up.
And a great party at another friend Jenna’s childhood home.
They even fit in a visit here one evening!
The main event though was of course the wedding. Joseph ended up being the last minute ring-bearer. This was lots of fun and highly stressful for Joseph and I. Neither of us are the best with getting dressed up and all that goes along with these huge events. It was A LOT of waiting and not knowing what was happening and waiting and trying to be flexible for Joseph.
Out of his fancy clothes and DANCING. Now he was in his element. He and Sophia danced all night long. Seriously. The party was perfect for him. He danced until past 10 and his legs were hurting. I didn’t even have to worry during the party; I always new where he was—on the dance floor!

Lego competition at Shoreham Day. We loved Shoreham Day (also celebrating Shoreham’s 250th birthday this year) and spent all day there. From the huge book sale, great food, bouncy houses and games, tractor pulls, to the lego competition, street dance into the night and fireworks, it was a wonderful community event.
The lego competition was serious stuff. The teenage organizer put a pile of legos on the table, set a timer for twenty minutes, and the kids worked silently on their creations. Then other kids walked around, asked questions, and then conferred to determine a winner from each table. The winner got to keep their legos. I loved watching Joseph and the others work so diligently. Joseph played two rounds and even was designated a “winner” the second time ;-)
