Well, a lot has happened in the past two months, including us going through the process of buying a home! When it came time to move, everything felt different. Although we were exhausted at the thought of packing and moving, AGAIN, it meant that we could finally settle down and put all of our creative ideas into a place that we own. Yesterday I found myself smiling over the mundane tasks like getting the mail, sweeping the hardwood floors, and pulling the garbage cans up our driveway. Yes, these things are a part of life wherever you may live, but I smiled because in some ways it just reminded me that we are here to stay...no more moving every year, or in our case every 7 or 8 months. yikes!
We recently took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. Last year we went right before Halloween and it was almost impossible to find a pumpkin that wasn't rotten, so we decided to go the first weekend it opened :) A completely different experience, I tell ya. Ruby was having a hard time choosing just one and Shepherd just wandered around, touching every pumpkin in sight. Gosh, I love those kids!
