As expected, Paul & Si had a terrific camping trip last weekend. It is very special, as the kids are older now, that they are becoming aware of our traditions & look forward to them each year. This camping trip is a great tradition for my guys!
I long for a camping trip as well, but I have no love for summertime camping. Too sweaty & buggy for my tastes. As soon as the weather cools & the leaves begin to turn, we are headed out to the land!
Can you believe that summer is winding down? Here & there, I see little hints of impending Autumn. It is a bit darker each morning as I drive Dustin to school. We have some pretty decent sized pumpkins in the garden now. And I noticed the Halloween costumes were out in the stores yesterday!
We had an amazing summer. But I am kind of over it now, & ready for my favorite season to begin. Warm wool sweaters on those blustery, overcast days. Watching the leaves fall like rain into our backyard. Cozied up to the campfire, a glass of wine in hand. I love Autumn. Love love love it.
