Well that was one of the longer gaps between posts. Wow. Sorry about that. And it's not because there's been nothing going on at the Gates Home. No way. Lincoln has been off to a great start at Kindergarten, Lydia and Henry are getting into a routine of being the only ones at home during the day, Jenn is running like crazy keeping up with things, volunteering at Lincoln's school and prepping for her 1/2 marathon in early October, work has been steady for me, an abridged version of one of the essays I wrote with Eden Myers appeared in print in Veterinary Economics (original here), Jenn and I have been keeping up with our friends and Bible study groups... whew. So you can get an idea for where the time has gone.
In fact, the time has so gotten away that I forgot to share some really cool photos from a couple of weeks ago when Lincoln, Henry and I went to Szalay's Farm early in the morning to watch a corn harvest. The boys were quite into seeing the harvester and tractors work.
It's getting cooler around here, and it really feels like fall. We finished dinner early the other evening and went to Rita's for some frozen custard. It'll probably be our last frozen custard of the season.
This evening we packed some stuff for dinner for the kids and went to the Ledges. Jenn ran around on the trails and I grilled some hot dogs for the kids and we had a picnic.
