Kelvin and Carleigh headed to the ranch for youth weekend to get a big 'un! She's one cute gate girl.
5th grader and Kindergartener ready for the Fun Run.
Cora and her girlfriends.
Waiting his turn.
After the run, we went to Luke's soccer game then headed back to the Fall Fest for some fun.
We made it to the pumpkin patch too.
We missed Careligh, but we didn't forget to get her a pumpkin.
I think October might be my favorite...well, one of them anyway. I wonder what Octobers are like in heaven. Do they grow pumpkins and watch the leaves on the trees change colors? Do they run through corn mazes and have three-legged sack races? I hope so. I like to think Emma and her friend Celia are having a ball this fall. I hope they are carving the prettiest pumpkins and eating caramel apples and popcorn balls like there's no tomorrow. I miss her. Now that the kids are so independent, I wonder how our lives would be different with her here with us. I like this stage...no diapers or diaper bags, no wiping hineys, everyone feeds themselves and the big ones can even cook some things themselves. I'm sure Emma would have loved cheesy grits like Luke and pancakes like all of them. I wonder if she would have liked gymnastics like Cora or preferred dance Iike Carleigh. I guess there will always be a hole, a yearning and longing. I look forward to the day we see her again.
October blessings to you!
