Fall festival

It hasn't seemed much like fall.  The highs continue to stay in the 80's and the fall foliage is still green.  We spent a few hours at the fall festival yesterday.  Alex wore a sleeveless shirt. It was that warm.  Good thing there was a good wind blowing too or it would have been uncomfortable. 

Train ride was fun.

Jump house fun!  That boy loves jump houses.

Waiting in line is tough.




 He comes by his impatience honestly.  I am no good at waiting. 

Noting like being bucked off. 

He really enjoyed the pony ride.  He knew she could go faster.  She did not agree.

House update




 We had a bit of work done to the house this summer.  The old porch was torn off and a bigger one was built.  Plus we have all new siding. 
Next is the new shop.  The dirt work has started on it.  Hopefully they will get it done before Thanksgiving.

The Wall

While reading some of the names I couldn't help but think of the families and their loss.  I have a new perspective.  Humbling.  Thank you for your service.

I am so proud of my little girl.  She looks sharp in her whites.  I can't tell you how nice it is for her to have her phone back. We are texting back and forth as I write this.  Ahhhh.  It is such a relief to be able to talk to her every day. 
Here are a few pictures of her graduation.  She is hidden in the ranks so we didn't know where she was until after it was all over.
