I feel like last October we ran amok with wayyyyy too many pumpkin outings. This fall we are wrangling with a beast of a house renovation and tons of packing so this may be one of the very few pumpkin posts for this year. Let’s see how it all goes with getting out of Home Depot and into the fall foliage this month. Meanwhile here are some shots of our trip back to Hank’s, where we at least got a taste of the season (and some pumpkin and apple-cider donuts – yum!)

I’ve been dying to get to this beautiful new museum – constructed on farm land and made (in my opinion) to look like a grand, elegant barn full of contemporary art. It was fun sending the kids on an art scavenger hunt on a rainy afternoon —

This little wise man is so full of interesting thoughts and words this week. I just had to share them – or write them down somewhere so that we remember them:

Re: his daydreaming -
“Mom when I’m daydreaming I imagine that I live in a tree house with Lea, and she’s my wife, and I make go karts for work.”

Re: holding his attention at school and trying to learn instead of daydream -
“I would learn more if there was some joy. If I’m not daydreaming I want to be talking about or seeing something joyful, ya know?”

(and while I was showering he used a little marker to make a ‘stache)

I found these older photos in my camera… from the beginning of September back when Governor’s Island was open and the art fair was going on. The kids loved the interactive talking robotic goat, and African music and dance. There was a jump rope jumping contest (that E&Z’s dad did surprisingly well at!) We will miss it now that the cooler weather is moving in.

Our last grasp at summer… the waves were amazing, the blown sand made it all look like the moon. And we finally got to play with those incredible kites that grandma and grandpa got from their trip to China!

So instead of writing up a storm about all our goings on, packing up for a new move, watching the leaves change color … I’m going to post as many photos as I can and get back to working on that packing. So much packing. Meanwhile here are some pix from our High Holidays dinner out at the beach, and back at this lovely place where me and my husband were married. (thanks Loren Bevans for the last 2 pix!) IMG_3947 IMG_3948 IMG_3949 IMG_3957 IMG_3967 IMG_3971 IMG_3976 IMG_3981 IMG_3984 IMG_0080 IMG_0112

I don’t know if it has to do with his recent obsession with Minecraft or not – but this boy can build a room! While we were putting together some kitchen ideas at Ikea – he quietly tinkered away on the kitchen planning program and came up with some better decorating ideas than we had. hmmmmm…
