To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

ZUCCHINI APPLE MUFFINS
The play date!
Luke and Cayden can be rather creative in their play and
that's a very good thing (to quote Martha Stewart).
With older twin sisters, playing at Cayden's house can offer
a treasure trove of fun dress-up clothes to choose from.
This is one of the most loveable things about Luke...his creativity!
The summer months are winding down and the Atlanta children have headed back to school. Summer vacations seem so much shorter these days. It used to be that Labor Day marked the end of summer vacation and now everyone begins school in early August!
I have to thank Miss Kelly for snapping this adorable picture!
Oh, how this makes his Maine Grandma smile! The innocence of childhood!
This was my back to school gift for Luke!
I thought these were so fun to use for his morning breakfast or after school snack!
He can choose four different Kellog's Corn Flake children! Very vintage!
We wish you a very happy and successful school year ahead Luke!
