Every year there is a point in time when autumn meets the end of summer.
When those first leaves begin to fall and the scent of earth walks in the air.
There is a point in time when cool breezes linger around day
carrying our thoughts around clouds and into open skies.
Sometimes my heart stops for a moment
I try to capture each small detail of the season
a leaf slowly dancing in sky
a gust of wind that carries across our yard
crickets singing into darkness
I like to greet autumn with open arms.
This weekend we lazily lounged around our home. I canceled my plans to spend time with the kids, who were all feeling a bit under the weather. We walked to the park and embraced the end of September. And as we played we noticed Daddy coming home from work so he joined us on our adventure. Jon and Jessica sure are little buddies. She was so excited to see her Daddy join us. I would have to say she is a "daddy's girl."
We spent time with family, dinner with my parents on Saturday and dinner at Jon's dads on Sunday. It felt good to get out of the house. It felt good to not cook. This is another busy week. So many activities and outings and preparations. Can you guess who turns two in one week?
