My boys and our sweet neighbor friends singing the pre game national anthem before beginning to play football in the front yard. Such fun! Fall makes my heart happy.
I can't explain it. I just love this time of year. Everything about it makes me happy! The smells, the colors, the cool weather... Happy.
These two are night and day different, but they get along so well. I love them so much.
Watching college football...
We were too into the game to stop and take Jackaroo to bed!
School outside... It happens during fall because mama can't stand to miss out on the nice weather!
This little dog,"Sniffer," continues to hang around. Now he has started sleeping on our doorstep. How sweet! If Erik would let me, I'd adopt you, little one!
One evening this week all the kids played on the swing set. Every now and then it hits me that one day this wooden structure will stand empty and quiet, no children crawling over every inch of it. I'm so thankful that this is not true today. Our swing set is 10 years old and going strong! It gets so much playtime. It is beginning to look a bit worn. I love it. My big boys still play like kids. I don't know what I'll do when they quit!?!?! I will miss these days!
I love fall so much, but I'm really trying to take in all the GREEN! I know that in less than two months the leaves will all be gone. The green is so lush and pretty, but it is slowly turning right before our eyes! One season bleeding into the next. Might as well sit back and enjoy the change!
She has my heart. There aren't words.
Leaves scattered on the pond means fall is on its way. Our home, our little neck of the woods, it means so much to me. The tall trees, the pond, the land for boys to run and play. I am always grateful for our little piece of land, but during the fall months it overwhelms me.
