It's taken me almost a month to get this posted because my laptop died just after I uploaded the pictures. Big time bummer. Back your stuff up! No excuses.
An extremely busy summer. Libby wrapped up her last full Provincetown endeavor in May working on her Masters of Fine Arts. She has another two-week stint this September
for graduation! You can see some of her latest work at libbykfoster.com. This is very much still a work in progress with yours
truly as the "webmaster". I expect some meaningful changes over the next couple months.
James continues to stun as the most accommodating, pleasant baby we've ever encountered. He is just so easy, which allowed for an active, fun summer. Libby says he breaks her heart with his sweetness. I say he mends mine.
We spent several days in Ainsworth, NE for my father's funeral. Obviously a difficult time, but it was nice to catch up with the
extended family and let them meet the boys and vice versa. We also got some great pictures while we were. My sister took the "Nebraska Sky" series you'll see in there. Full of life and play in the green fields in front of my grandmother's house against a might-be-stormy sky.
I think "Nebraska Sky 2" is one of the greatest photographs ever.
Ben turned six on June 30. He is a sweet big brother and still Lego master. He got his Star Wars theme for the party and had quite the battle with about ten of his friends. He also was sort of into Harry Potter so the cake says, "Happy Birthday Harry".
For the Fourth of July, the Foster 5 and Chewie piled into the Volkswagen Passat and drove to Vermont to enjoy the Ahmann's and Caputo's company. We stayed with Luke and Kate and saw some great fireworks, Vermont Lake Monsters single-A baseballl, and F-16s take off from the runway. It was a really great weekend and one of the few free from hockey, baseball, soccer, or rugby.
Speaking of rugby, the last group of pics is from the jamboree that caps the youth season for the Boston Irish Wolfhounds. Luke's team competed against the few other local area youth teams. Luke had been playing with mostly older kids all season and hanging in there, but the more age-appropriate group (6-8) needed players. He did not like the idea of being demoted, but the coaches recruited pretty hard. He scored seven trys in five games...and was mostly mad at the end that he had to play with "the kids". Good times.
