October Misc Round-Up

While we were in the great midwest, the kids and the whole Salem crew took part in the Discover Pink Walk in Salem.

We recently became a one-car family, and we’re still getting used to it. One day, I had to take the kids on the bus to get the car from Becky.

The kids’ school has a Diwali celebration every year, including outfits, decorations, dancing, and a party. This year there was even henna! Becky put in some volunteer hours by photographing the festivities.

Will’s been exchanging love letters with Becky over email.

His class had a field trip to the Newell House, and were encouraged to dress up!

Lucy’s teeth have been falling out. “Now I don’t have any artichoke teeth!”

October isn’t really complete without pumpkins.

Lucy’s class visited the World Forestry Center, which is pretty cool if you haven’t been there. Actually, it’s still pretty cool even if you have been there.

While Becky was out (see below), I took the kids to the animation exhibit at OMSI, and we made some cool drawings.

Lucy discovered the magic of green screens, and became (I think) a raspberry.

They had a rig similar to what we saw at the Color Run, so we recorded a couple of things.

Becky had her hair cut. In half.

She also got a new laptop, and a pretty skin so she can tell it from all the other silver laptops.

Becky went out to the beach house for a girls’ weekend, and included this little girl.

A couple of them wanted to go in the ocean, so they rented wetsuits.

This is how I fix a bad day.

And this is how I fix gutters.

And this is how I fix breakfast. This actually happens most days now. That’s a poached egg and flaked salmon on a bed of spinach, with blender hollandaise. And a strip of bacon.

Scout is weird. And a very messy eater.

We trucked out to Neskowin to get our beach house ready to sell. We’re a little sad about it, but it’s been draining us dry. We have our sights set firmly on Neskowin, though, and we’ll be back.
