This is my favorite season of the year. And I'm shocked to hear myself voice that opinion because of my dislike of the cold weather that will soon follow Autumn. I might have even confessed that Summer was my first choice in a season, but after the +100* temps for over a month I can let it go.
It is true. Fall is my favorite. I can't get enough of the spiced candles, baked goodies, cozy meals, sweatpants (hehe), and the colors. Oh I love the colors of Fall. Have you looked outside lately? Where I live the leaves are beginning to change colors! If you haven't seen them yet, stop what you are doing and go take a peek. THIS is something I marvel at every year. And there have even been years I've been so busy I have missed this incredible display of God's creative design. So make sure you take a good look... it doesn't stay colorful for long.
With Fall here we've had several changes going on in our lives. Our first child went to Kindergarten. I'll admit, I didn't think I would be sad. If you know your child like we know our son, we knew he would love school. And he does. It's been a great first 22 days (is that all?) of school.
Here is our 5-year-old on his first day. (Don't mind the dead plant. I do NOT have a green thumb-it's more black than anything.)
Also we have been watching our baby girl grow right before our eyes. They change so fast! Here's Little Sister. She started sitting just a month ago.
So yes, lots of changes. But I'm so thankful I get to experience the joys of being their Mommy.
What changes are you blessed to see this time of year?
