Fall Has Come

As I sit down to write this post it is 53 degrees outside and we have our heat on for the first time. I wasn't too excited about the cold weather coming this year because I was remembering what last fall was like, TERRIBLE. This time last year I was 2 months pregnant and feeling sick everyday. I would drag myself out of my warm cozy bed into the cold morning air to take Jack out to "shout" (go pee) and barely making it back to the house before throwing up the saltines I had just eaten. I remember trying to get myself bundled up and looking less like death to get to work by 7:30am. Trying to teach, entertain and discpline twelve 4 year olds all wanting to do pumpkin art RIGHT NOW! This involved paint and a lot of patience that I did not have at 8:30am when I was cold, cranky and on the verge of puking up the oatmeal I had forced down. As you can see last fall was rough.

Trying to forget what was a not so fun fall season last year .......

I am getting excited feeling the crisp fall air! I love fall sweaters,

baking sweet potato pies, my beautiful Mums, even raking leaves. I am looking forward to it ALL! YEA FOR FALL!

Such a beautiful picture. I know when you think of the hard times, then look at our darling Adalie, you say, "She is worth it all and more"
The colors, crisp air remind me of Georgia. Enjoy!
We love you three,
