As I walked Jensen to the bus stop this morning (yes, I said bus stop!)
I smelled it.

Fall is nearly upon us.

I LOVE Fall.

I love that crisp smell.

I love the fall colors all around me.

I love seeing leaves on the sidewalk.

I love getting seriously re-acquainted with my band saw.

I love the prospect of getting ready for bazaars. (I’m doing 4 this year)


I seriously love getting back into a daily routine.    How does that happen?

This happens!

Boys are so easy to get ready for school. A new pair of tennis shoes that they wear everyday. A few new t-shirts, underwear and socks and we are ready. This is the time of year that I’m okay with the fact that I don’t have daughters!

Here they are on the first day of school this year September 7th 2010

Jensen is in 4th grade and Gordon is in 8th grade. How did that happen?


  1. Jensen couldn't find a matching pair of socks? Hehe :)

  2. Ellen, He has a bunch of new socks but chose to wear those miss matched ones. He doesn't care if they match or are even the same kind. Stinker!
