Soccer--the Sharks

These pictures were taken at the boys' first soccer game on Sept. 12th. We've had a crazy season as almost every game was rained out and had to be rescheduled. Their last game is tomorrow night. Henry's been counting them down; sports just isn't his thing right now, although he has played really well. William has really enjoyed it and he has scored several goals! He's looking forward to playing basketball now.


These were taken almost 2 months ago when Ellen was 9 months old. Thought I'd better get them up before she turns one! She's wearing the same dress that Vivian wore in her 9-month portraits. The dress and bonnet were made and smocked by Nannie.
She started crawling at 9 months and pulling up at 10 months. She's cruising a little, but she still mostly crawls to get what she wants. And, she gets into everything! She laughs at the word "no." She says "Mama" and "Elmo" (which sounds a lot like "mama"). She loves any attention from her brothers and sisters. She's crazy over animals and loves being outdoors. She's shy but flirty; she's not a big fan of strangers holding her right now. She resists napping! She's good to go after a late morning nap until bedtime!
