slow down, slow down, SLOW DOWN...
Autumn. Fall. My favorite time of year. The world around here explodes in bright, vivid colors. It's a close tie with Spring - but since fall has some of my most favorite colors - it almost always wins by a bit.
This fall has been a bit different. First - it's been FREEZING. We went from shorts and flip flops one week, to winter coats, gloves, hats and two layers of clothing the next week. No transition what so ever. It's also been quite wet. And, cold and wet in my book - really STINK.
But the colors are here. And so are the fall activities. We have been booked solid. No time to rest. No time to stop. Barely time to enjoy. We haven't even gone to the pumpkin patch yet. We may have to squeeze it in after school this week - because this weekend is already full.
So, here's to SLOWING down, and enjoying. It will all be a memory in no time.
On Saturday night, we went to Izzy Farms moonlight corn maze. We each got a glow stick and a map. It was a bit more muddy than I anticipated, but it was much fun.
Paige went to the playroom at the gym for the first time today. YES, I JOINED A GYM. More on that later. She was a champ. NO tears. No big deal. She could have cared less that I was gone. She took one look at all the TOYS and didn't even look back!! Let's see how she does tomorrow. YES, I AM GOING TO THE GYM TWO DAYS IN A ROW. Maybe you should write that one down.
And she got boots. She LOVES them.
