We had our first real cool front
Saturday morning was beautiful for Luke's soccer game. He is such a good little player. It's fun watching him learn and improve. His sweet teacher came to cheer him on with us.
After the game we packed a bag and headed to the lake. A friend Kelvin works with hosted a fish fry at his lake house. It was lip smackin' goooood! After all the fun of croquet, golfcart rides, and loverly desserts, we headed to another friend's lake house for the night. The air was crisp Saturday night, and it was such a treat to sit bundled in a blanket on the porch and listen to the breeze blow the leaves in the silver leaf maple next door and hear the water moving on the lake. I love the water. I feel such peace when I'm near it. Sunday brought sleeping late, kids playing and fishing, and a loooooong afternoon nap. I'm sorry to say I didn't take a single photo.
I am so thankful for our children and the fun we're having with them during this phase. I am thankful for the changes in the weather, watching the leaves change color and fall, and soccer games with a cool breeze. I'm thankful for apple pound cake (even if it was a disaster intially) and soup and apple cinnamon pancakes with cinnamon syrup. I'm thankful for a God whose mercies are new every morning and who loves me inspite of myself.
What are you thankful for?
