be brave, be kind

true is modeling jason's latest be brave, be kind tshirt.   check then out at Rivulet industries http://rivuletindustries.com/


i'm not sure why the boys are holding books on their heads,  but it was their choice of poses.  incidentally, luca would have his be brave be kind tshirt on too, but the shirt does not cover his ample belly.  the kid likes to eat!

singing in the rain

the boots are on the porch....a sure sign that fall is here (although it supposed to be 77 and sunny in a few days).  i have to say that fall is my favorite time of year....i like the color, the cold crisp air, wearing my red hunters,  the anticipation of the holidays.  i usually like to mountain bike this time of year too....but....the broken collar bone has robbed me of that. drat!
fall also means cyclocross racing...i won't be out there, but i'll be watching my man kill it!  true will start competing in the kiddie races as well...he is very excited to be such a big boy!

art projects

rainy days and colds mean art projects in the dining room. it's always good for at least half hour of uninterrupted fun. eventually it leads to tears when luca gets bored and starts ripping up the paper, or to my chagrin, when he starts using his markers on the curtains.

all kinds of riding



aaron had a week of riding bikes with rapha , and i took care of kids. my husband surprised me though...he flew me to oregon to join him and the team.
the story is amazing and involves private airplanes, rodeos, picking gravel out of my knee, bull riding, 7 pound corn dogs, and so many other things. i wouldn't know where to start or end. but here is some photo evidence of what was an amazing and crazy weekend.
(thanks to my mom for making the trip to seattle to take care of the wee erbecks. they loved hanging out with grammy!)

anything with wheels



luca's recent wheel love is skateboarding. the kid is fearless. which makes me fearful!

boy bike love





my boys (all three of them) love bikes. luca, in particular, was ever so fond of adeline's scoot. she graciously allowed him to have a turn on the bike, and luca did not so graciously return it. we spent the weekend trying to divert his attention so that adeline could ride her own bike (this was met with much protest!).

skylar goes to jr high


i remember the exact outfit that i wore to my first day of junior high school....and i knew it was pretty important to skylar too. i begged nicola to send me a quick photo of sky in her first day outfit. i think she's got mad style! love the skirt/converse combo!
(in case you're wondering, i wore blue cotton overalls, a yellow hawaiian print shirt and some bad brown suede shoes. not exactly the style maven known as skylar)

Mommy! Mommy! I love you!


that's what luca said to me yesterday. full sentences are a new thing, and take some baby interpretation...but it's exciting none-the-less. luca is motivated and determined to learn new words all the time- he's always pointing at something and saying (again, baby garble), "what called?"

thank you heather for the great portrait!

the taste of summer



it's cold around here already, but these pictures scream of summer (thanks clark rider). luca, as we have discovered, loves watermelon. he easily eats twice what an adult would eat in one sitting!
