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…

We revisited Bill Egger’s booth to see his vintage motorcycle (he builds them himself!) Giant carved pumpkins, all sorts of animals, and our friends Brad and Jane placed in the Lego building contest. We watched skillet tossing and vintage tractors pull as much weight as they could. We just can’t get enough of this fair!

Well I didn’t even get to blog about our long Labor Day weekend or some of our final lazy days of summer, and wham! Here it is, the first day of school. Ezra is transitioning into a new (humongous) school and handled it like a trooper this a.m. Zoe is returning to her school for a full day and UPK classes – and she is definitely ready for it. My husband and I just noted that this is the first time in 8 years that we have a full 6 hours of alone time during the weekdays. Have we taken the attachment parenting thing too far? I already miss them – but look at how much they’ve grown (compare to last year by clicking here) !

These two – when they get along and can tolerate a quick ride on the subway – we can get to the swings at Central Park within 20 minutes. If no one wants to deal with the subway, Rainbow Berry Yogurt in our ‘hood seems to be their favorite stop. I think it’s the whacky furniture and the mural that makes it feel like an extra treat. I will miss these guys and our lazy days of summer. Almost time for school..
