slowing down, part II.
It is funny. Just yesterday I was saying that slowing down could be a good thing. And then I fall down the garage steps and wrench my ankle (a little guy zipped around me just as I was stepping and I missed a whole step-crunch). Nothing really bad, but enough to slow me down!
Today was a perfect chilly sunny fall day with blue skies and fluffy clouds and gorgeous leaves.
After a morning of writing letters to friends, reading books, and making clay leaves, we went outside. We had a picnic at a local park and the boys climbed and played and ran. We picked up our CSA this afternoon and saw many tractors and combines both on and off the road. Tonight after dinner the boys rode their bikes in the dusk under a big beautiful orange moon, and then we put pumpkins and spiderwebs with little spiders all around our arbor before coming inside to warm up and play some board games by cozy lamp and candlelight. A nice fall day!
