Fall in the Air

It's gotten quite cool this week here in the mountains. It's nice, but I'm not sure I'm ready for summer to be over. With all the rain we haven't had nearly as much time in the river that we did last year. One afternoon we made do with the hose and a leaky swimming pool.

Since he was climbing out 10 times a day we converted the crib to a bed. It went ok for a couple of weeks, but now we're having nightly battles to get him to sleep. Nap time isn't great either, but I just let him play in his room until he falls asleep in the floor most days.
Preschool started back this week and with the extra activity and routine we're hoping that things get settled soon.

We did add a rail after the picture was taken, he fell out twice the first night!

I forgot to take a picture of this baby knit until after it was unwrapped at the shower. But at least it's been documented.

And the recipient arrived last week
Congratulations to high school friends Beth and Corey

And also to Celo friends Annie and Jared who had a very stubborn little girl on Tuesday over a week overdue!

In the pottery world I'm fighting the looming deadlines. I have a large gallery order and lots of smaller special pieces due in a couple of weeks, not to mention no inventory here or at my consignment galleries. But with the boy back at school, it finally looks possible that I will meet my goals. Off to get started for the day.
