Hello cool, crisp mornings. Hello pumpkin spice scented candles and fall decorations. Hello beautiful colors and entire days spent outside. Hello open windows and happy hearts.
Rainy and Zeke track back in on Monday. It is a bitter sweet thing. While I am going to enjoy the normal routine of life and the days of only 3 littles to mother for a few hours a day, I am going to miss leisurely mornings and multiple-kid-problem-solving play and late night fun. But that's the good thing about year-round schools, you get to do it all over again in just a few short weeks!
A Cricket In Time Square, but naturally it wasn't going to happen because it was a mom idea;) Well wouldn't you know, she began reading it "undercover", literally, at night with her little bed light. The more she read, the more she got into the book and characters, until she was staying up way into the night. She finally finished the book last week and was dying to read MORE. You better believe I jumped on the momentum and found some books for just a few cents on Amazon. Rainy was literally waiting on the front driveway for them to arrive in the mail:-) In the meantime our friend, Bonnie, brought over an armful of her kids old books for Rainy to read while she waited. She is probably 3/4 into Charlotte's Web and is still going strong! I am ecstatic!
Here's to many more years of coloring in Bibles and reading under the covers until dawn.
Happy Friday ya'll!
