After our winter-like weather, I was nervous that fall had come and gone... and I have not even gotten to enjoy it's beauty! But the last few days have satisfied my fall love... Ethan and I have spent every waking hour outside... throwing rocks, playing in the creek, jumping on crisp leaves, and eating anything (well... Ethan is eating anything... I am constantly pulling out the REALLY gross objects... ie.. deer poop) I am amazed how he can chew up a deer poop pellet... as though it is the most amazing substance he has ever come across - yet he spits out his cheerios as though they were poison! Not sure about that boy???
Tonight we have a huge harvest party with the school... it should be fun... the theme is redneck... not sure how to dress up for that one - but maybe I will find some inspiration in the next few hours? The venture students stayed up all last night watching the pig cook in the spit... making sure that the fire was hot enough and that a bear or mountain lion did not come by to enjoy a few nibbles... it should be amazing (plus I saw at least 12 pies... who can pass up a piece of pie?)
I just LOVE this time of year... everything about it... the smells, the sounds, the cool evening air, the beautiful sunsets, the big full harvest moon (earlier this month)., etc! I think when we get to heaven it will be fall all year round..... at least in my corner of heaven ;o)
