We’re Moving! Farewell St. Louis!

Goodbye St. Louis! In no particular order, a bunch of photos from our time here (11 years!) in St. Louis. And if you are so inclined you can play this really good Talking Heads songΒ while you scroll (or sing it in your head, lyrics below)…

Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me around
I feel numb, born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun

The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along

Feet on the ground, head in the sky
It’s okay, I know nothing’s wrong, nothing
Oh oh

I got plenty of time

Oh oh You got light in your eyes
And you’re standing here beside me

I love the passing of time

Never for money, always for love
Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight
Home, is where I want to be
But I guess I’m already there
I come home, she lifted up her wings
I guess that this must be the place
I can’t tell one from the other
I find you, or you find me?
There was a time before we were born
If someone asks, this is where I’ll be, where I’ll be…

Goodbye to all of our St. Louis friends!

Late September/Early October in Spy Garden

Spy Garden

Late September!! The fall weather has been slow to arrive!

A few tomatoes have managed to survive our extreme neglect

At the library we noticed this painting with monarchs:

“Monarch” (get it?)

Well executed trompe l’oeil

Trompe l’oeil means trick of the eye and is a painting technique that makes a painting appear three dimensional. It was used in all the paintings being shown (they aren’t collages); these are all watercolor paintings. The artist is Kent Addison.

Pointing out a tear in the paper that is really trompe l’oeil

Reading in the library

12 years old!

Homecoming Parade

Llama (and alpaca) refusing to participate in the parade haha
