On the walk home, we talked about fall: leaves changing, soccer, Halloween, Thanksgiving. With each passing year, the boys understand and enjoy these events even more. I'm coming to love the changing of the seasons as it constantly brings new joys to share with my boys. And with so many heavy things in my heart right now (skin cancer, grandfather passing), it is nice to have the boys to help me stay present and focused on the positive. How could this scene not cheer me up?
Good bye summer 2009, I had an incredible time watching my little fish in the water. I can't wait to see what joys summer 2010 brings.
