My baby is 11 years old. Wow.

October Self-Portrait

I determined in January to do a self-portrait every month. I really don't enjoy it--don't feel at all creative taking them, don't enjoy looking at them. But, now that I've done October: Only two more to go!

Something New

Am I too old for these shoes? (Don't answer that. I like 'em. So there.)

Late Bloomer

I think the plants are a tad confused by our 80-degree weather in mid-October!

We are having the pleasure this weekend of hosting a missionary couple during our church's missions conference; this is Janet, who with her husband and two children spent some 15 years serving the Lord in Pakistan.

Ruth and I pray together every Wednesday for our kids. It's great to look at the Scriptures, worship, and lift up our kids before the Lord together, and I appreciate her faithfulness to this task over the years.

Sick Boy

Kipper and I both felt lousy Sunday, he with a cold and I with some kind of stomach ailment.

More Bat Mitzvah Girl

Here's Molly again, this time holding the Torah scroll with her parents, my brother Rick and his wife, Lisa. Molly did a great job during the service, and she's a terrific kid!

Bat Mitzvah Girl

We spent the weekend celebrating my niece Molly at her Bat Mitzvah; she's the one in pink. The others are her sister (also standing) and two cousins from Pittsburgh.

Leaves & Acorns

I don't know why, but I really like this picture. The textures, maybe? Whatever. It's certainly seasonal.

Our front shrubs were covered with these amazing, delicate webs, all damp from an early morning drizzle. I have some pictures that include a spider as well, but I loved this shot, which shows the cuplike structure of the web.
