I haven't been blogging much this week because while we have been inside a bit every day working on our projects, I haven't had much sit down at the computer time. In between our projects and crafts we have also been outside as much as possible, watching our world change colors and the plants do their end of the season thing, all under the bluest sky.
There is so much to see this time of year, and we feel like we must see it all, before the wind blows it all away, leaving cold and bare, and winter comes.
For the past few weeks we have been doing our daily walks later so we can wait for the morning chill to dissipate after the nice cold fall nights...but a heat wave descended on us a few days ago and threw us off, and we have been having a hard time switching to getting out EARLY for our walk before the heat and humidity hit.
It seems so odd to be out and about in a world full of combines, grain trucks, golds and oranges, falling leaves and fields of gold ... and hot tropical air?
But either way, we go out out OUT, and when it is too hot for them, the boys zoom as fast as they can to the end of the trail or path, sweating and red, ready to get something cold to drink and to get into the shade, not caring that if they just slow down it won't be so hot! ;)
I hear fall temps might be returning some time soon - can't wait. Hopefully in time for our short visit to Minnesota!
(crazy:: Madison set a record high Saturday of 85º, a full 23 degrees higher than normal for this time of year.)
