Remarkable Ginko

Thought I would inundate folks with an overload of pictures from our fun under this extraordinary ginko tree on the UVA grounds.  We "dropped everything" to meet Bee here on Monday.  I am so glad we did!  There is no time like the present, especially where tree color is concerned!  After playing under the golden canopy we walked in some of the gardens, which are mostly bare this time of year.  We did find some tasty rosehips, and a fruit similar to an apple that had the bite of a lemon!  Cheers!

Nine Months!

I can't believe another month has passed, and here we are again celebrating another of Hannah's birthdays!  This morning was busy with back to back soccer games (last of the season), then going to the library and grocery shopping.  Then coming home and putting away groceries and library books and playing football (always more and more football).  It wasn't until I was relaxing on the sofa when the sun was going down that I realized that today was the big nine month birthday!  So, I grabbed my camera and took the little girl out for a quick photo shoot.  She was only too happy for a bit of fresh air and to watch her big brothers play football.  (She cracks up when Gabriel says "down, set, hike!)  A beautiful evening, a beautiful girl, and beautiful brothers and sister that love that girl so.
