Fall has arrived

After having a very long summer we are now finally experiencing Fall. Right now the whole family has quite a bit going on. Brody is now 4 months old and growing faster and faster. He has a doctors appointment tomorrow and will be getting his second set of immunization shots. He has a very sweet personality. He smiles at everyone and giggles quite often. He rolled over for the first time a week ago and loves to play on the floor.

Coolidge is also growing like a weed. He is starting school for the first time this Friday. He will be in the preschool class at Hale Learning Center. He is very nervous but also excited. We attended a family festival at the park near our home. Coolidge's favorite was the pony ride and face painting. It isn't something we do very often in the city. Coolidge got to see his first puppet show and I have to say I was impressed with one of the stories. We try to take advantage of all that the city has to offer families (especially when it is free).

Ben is working very hard and has just been given the opportunity to direct a stage reading for a company named TSI. It is his first time directing something on the stage. He has just finished casting and will start rehearsals soon. He is very excited and I couldn't be prouder of him. He also has a birthday coming up and hopefully I will get to take him out on a date. We haven't had some alone time since Brody was born.

I have been busy taking care of the home. It is my first time not having a job outside of my house and I am loving it. It is a lot of hard work, especially trying to find a school for Coolidge when he starts kindergarten. With so many options it takes a lot of research to get into the school of your choice. His zoned school is not an option because it is failing in many ways. If anyone has any advice please feel free to help me out. I hope all is well and I will try my best to keep up the blog.


  1. Henry Jr. and Kendal love Coolidge's face paint. Very dramatic! Glad to see you're getting out and enjoying the Fall weather. ~Henry

    I know the school thing is tough! A lot of research and always leaving the question 'are we making the right choice?' We are going through the same thing with meg...need to figure it all out! Beautiful boys! Happy Fall.

    Love Jen

    Hey Guys,
    Love the photos! I am a big puppet show fan. I just recently saw one in Sicily. The kids are growing rapidly. Bye the way, Happy Birthday Ben! Congrats on the play.
    Things are good in Cali, still enjoying easy living.
    Take care,
