Another week in paradise!

I love fall weather. There is just something about the leaves turning and the weather cooling down that makes me smile. I love big sweatshirts and bonfires, I love to go to football games..but I always leave at half time. I love fall foods they are so comforting to me. Carmel apples, soups, casseroles, chicken and dumplins,  warm tea and hot coffee with pumpkin creamers in it. I love to get all my quilts down and wash them and throw them in the living room. Madison LOVES when I get them down and she comes home from school to snuggle with one and nap before Miller comes home and the evening gets crazy with practices and games. I love to watch her while she naps...I know she will be gone soon. Sophomore this year. Yep...makes me sad to think about her days left. Its not that I dont want her to grow up. I do. Its just yesterday she had pig tails and cute outfits and wanted me to watch everything she did. Now its just different.   I try to watch everything she does...she just doesnt share as much now.

Miller on the other hand is growing so fast. He has broken another record at school in PE! That boy is awesome! He loves sports and sports love him.

We have another crazy weekend. Miller is running his first 1 mile race for St Jude. Scott is running a 5k. We have a baseball game. And I have no idea of Madison's plan just yet. Another weekend of going going going gone.....

Happy week everyone!

I love your descriptions of Fall. It's my favorite time of year and you have a way of capturing in words all of the things I love about it.

I think the high school years seem to fly by the fastest. . . for the most part. Good for you for being so observant and soaking it all in.

Have a great weekend, Jen!

I bought pumpkin spice creamer yesterday, not sure about it but will try it soon!
Can't believe your daughter is a sophomore! It does go fast so like Karen said, soak it all in.

So glad to catch up with you Jen! I love fall too, we just don't get enough of it down here. We had a nice cool spell, but it's back up to the upper 80's now. Boo!

I can't believe your daughter is already a sophomore! I'm sure you stay so busy with your kids, try to stop and enjoy it as much as you can :)

Take care and have a great day!
