Sourdough attempt #1

We've been feeding "Guido" (our sourdough starter) a few times a day in order to build him up to make our first loaf of sourdough bread.  Here are some photos from our morning (color is a bit off-- my lighting was strange).
 Kneading this dough was really fun!
 And now we wait and let him rise.
I didn't take any more photos of the process, but that was one tasty loaf of bread.  It didn't rise as high as I'd like-- I got distracted a few times during the setting out period, and let it sit too long, so I'm sure it I were really on top of things it would have been perfect.  As it was, we just cut the loaf horizontally and used it like that....mmmmmm
