Aaahhh Fall! For the first time in about 13 years I’m in a place that actually experiences Autumn--colored leaves, cool air, the works. Didn’t really miss it in Florida, because I was so enamored with the beauty of the Gulf coast, but I did long for seasons in Arizona; I never could come to appreciate desert beauty. So I’ve found five superhero costumes at thrift stores (almost the first year since becoming a mom that I haven’t made our Halloween costumes), I’m contemplating a vast number of Thanksgiving guests, and overjoyed at the prospect of Christmas, all in weather that necessitates long pants and (oh rapture!) long sleeves!
This leads to our first link
The best Fall articles at LDS Families, hopefully I’ll add several more over the next weeks of Fall.
Newer still is an article dealing with my ruminations on remaining adventurous and courageous even in the midst of adulthood and motherhood, “Letting Our Children remind Us What Is Possible”
Ever heard a five year old refuse to dance because she has no rhythm, or a three year old protest that his chances of being accepted into NASA and ever being a "spaceman" are impossibly slim? Parenthood gives us the chance to revisit those "impossible dreams" and jump back into the new and scary.
Hope you enjoy 'em and check back often for new stuff! Happy Fall (though I do plan to write again soon.)
