Another riotous Thanksgiving in Cleveland

Lovely Ohio family
My deliciousnessessssssss
Grampa and kids
Tried and true Thanksgiving tradition...rough-housing during half-time
I mean, honestly...too edible.

78th Street

These are some photos of our street and immediate neighborhood---vintage Brooklyn. There is a nearly even mix of small apartment buildings, two-family homes and single family homes. There are porches and sidewalks and trees and produce stands. We are close to several main shopping thoroughfares, two blocks from Sage's school and a block and half from the 77th st stop on the R train. Its nice.

no sleep 'till Brooklyn

Soooo you might have heard that we moved to Brooklyn....a very benign and uncool part of Brooklyn called Bay Ridge. We choose it because it is safe, full of families, no gentrification, good food (Mexican/Middle Eastern/Greek/Italian), easy corner pubs and lots of green grocers---most of them with organic and local selections. I have been busy getting everyone organized, including myself---so I don't have many pictures of the neighborhood. But I will publish what I have so far. Sage's first day of school at chaotic PS 127, pictures of my children watching TV naked inside the apartment and one taken last night with a great view of the Manhattan skyline taken from the Bay Ridge Ave pier. We are happy and not too busy yet. I have a feeling life will speed up exponentially once I have a job and next year when the bros start pre-k.

What I've been doing this summer....

First we planted a garden---Sage's corn plants shown here

Then, Parade the Circle was another fantastic success!

And some of my favorite people in the world moved to town!

Stephen and Grammy supported Grandmommy in Texas:
Then Stephen went to Lima:

And of course I've been hanging out with these guys with every waking breath...
