Well, shoot! I started this post over a week ago now, and had every intention of completing it and posting it the same day. So much for good intentions. Since I began this post, we've had another lovely weekend I will try to tell you about in different post. No promises. I don't have a very good track record. :/ So to catch you up on things....

We had our first real cool front this weekend before last. It was so nice to have a change of temperature. We spent Friday evening listening to some of our favorite musicians with some of our favorite friends at our favorite chef's restaurant. (To clarify, we have a good friend who is a chef at a restaurant. We don't have a personal chef or numerous chef friends. :)) It was wonderful!

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.

Yesterday Monday a week ago, the kids were out of school for Columbus Day. We made a fun craft and fallified the house. They have been begging to get fall decorations out since the beginning of September. :)

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?
