Evan taking up exercising.

Evan loves rolling on those huge exercise balls. 

More football

 We could not have asked for a better fall this year.  Compared to last year when the first snow fell on 25 Sept, we have been "snow free" all through October. 
 Another early morning. 
 Homework anywhere.
I think Aaron thought the best part of flag football was being able to wear a mouth-guard.  We had a heck of a time getting him to take it out of his mouth and a harder time understanding him when he had it in.  His team ended the season in 1st place.  Love the I-9 league!!

Halloween 2010

A witch, a lion and Charlie Brown.  Evan didn't know what to make of Aaron with his ghost costume on.

This one cracked me up.  Evan just stared at Aaron, not sure who he was.

and then there is Evan

poor kid...sleep seems to be found in short increments for him.  We have started calling him a "cat napper" but I am afraid a cat sleeps longer then he does.  Fortunately, he is usually pretty happy and can smile and laugh even with complete exhaustion.  He never quite knows where he will wake up at.  All in all, he has been such a blessing to our life.  He adores Miranda and Aaron and I am pretty sure the feeling is mutual.  Except of course, when he wakes at 2am and decides he wants the company of everyone else in the household!!

Where have we been?

I feel like we have disappeared the last few months.  Between running back and forth to lacrosse and football 3 days a week for Aaron, swimming 4 nights a week for Miranda, work for both Tom and I and keeping Evan happy, we have sort of disappeared into the depths of "life."  Evan turned 6 months old last week.  I can't believe he is 6 months old already.  Think we could convince him he is ready to sleep through the night?

Aaron has had a great time playing lacrosse and flag football this fall.  He wanted to take a break from swimming to see if anything else was of interest to him.  He has loved the beginner lacrosse league we found and has just started in a competitive league.

Miranda is still swimming and competed for the first time in 6 months in a new age category.  She held her own and found that the 200 free might just be her event.
