Evening Fun

As we approach fall, evenings are more and more pleasant outside. We spent some time out front- riding scooter, drawing with chalk, looking for bugs, digging the dirt, sweeping the garage, jumping rope... The most simple things in life are better just by enjoying them as a family!



Jacob likes telling us or requesting the specific colors of chalk. Beth's people drawings are getting more fun- lips and eyelashes. This time, she even drew a salad with ranch!



Just after we went inside for bath and bedtime, the skies turned cloudy, the wind blew like, uh, like, a COLD FRONT. Woohoo! Mornings are cooler, reminding me of camping mornings, and daytime temps are only a high of 95*. Not bad considering it was 100* at 5pm just a couple days ago.

I have noticed leaves changing and even had to use the heater in my car this morning. Fall is coming quick!

Yeah, fall is coming. Today was the first day since June 5 that the high temp for the day was below 90. Leaves are changing because their dying from the heat and lack of rain.

Jamie- there's not enough water around here for them. Though last night one got me- it was a much cooler evening
