It’s finally October, my favorite month. Hanging out at the soccer fields during the day. Relaxing and enjoying s’mores next to a fire at night. Cool enough for jeans and a hoodie, but still warm enough for some flip flops. The changing of the leaves and all the beautiful colors of fall. Hayrides, fall festivals, apples, and pumpkins. These are the things I love about October.
It’s true that we are not fans of Halloween, but everything else abot this month makes me smile! September always seems to rush by and so I enjoy the slower pace of it’s successor. My least favorite month is, of course, February. I’ll enjoy this while it lasts and then look forward to it until it arrives again. :)
We rang in the month with a bonfire (a small one) last night and then with back to back soccer games today. Tonight we’ll see family and enjoy celebrating the first birthday (a 50th birthday at that!) of many in our family this month. So thankful for the many blessings we have and all who we get to share them with!
Happy October, everyone!
*sorry the pictures aren’t that great. My good camera quit working back around Easter and I’ve been using our old one. It doesn’t zoom, drains batteries way too fast and is just not good enough for taking quality photos of moving children. I’m hoping to get a new one soon, somehow!
