We have had beautiful fall weather this week,and I was able to catch Maya and Eli as they had fun jumping
in a couple of leaf piles in our yard and around the neighborhood.
It was actually rainy and cool today, so I was glad we could enjoy time outdoors earlier in the week.
Lauren made a pot of chili today and I made a few cinnamon raisin biscuits,and it was nice to have a somewhat lazy Saturday.Jack and Eli spent the night last night and we enjoyed a movie and macaroni and cheese.We all woke up early when the "Eli alarm" went off at 4:45 AM, although we managedto get him to doze a few more minutes. Then the "boys" were off at 8 AM to meet the boys' parents for Jack's soccer game, ( in the rain, so I wisely stayed home.)
I'll leave you with this poem by Elsie N. Brady
How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
