Fall is in the air

It's slowly starting to cool off here, and the anticipation of fall is in the air. Not that we have much of an autumn in Phoenix, but I still think this is my favorite time of year. It's starting to cool off in the mornings now - at least enough that I can take Calvin for a stroll without breaking a sweat, and I know that in other parts of the country the leaves are starting to change beautiful colors. Maybe this year we'll take one of these road trips to experience a little autumn scenery in the desert.

I am trying to do a better job at keeping current pictures on the blog, and I'm reminded every time I realized Calvin has already changed since my last post! He is a bona fide crawler now, finding new fascinations in some unexpected places. This afternoon he was mesmerized by the spring door stop in his room and the vibration it made when he swung at it. His favorite toys right now are tupperware containers and plastic cups, which is fortunate since we have plenty and both are virtually indestructible!

Love those John Deere pictures and the Todd shirt!! You are so good about updating and I always love the pictures you choose. Love that Little Man (and his wonderful parents as well!)

Where did you get that cool shirt? I love it! I was just thinking of you today actually, mostly because I am nearly beside myself in love - with the Lord, that is, and feeling so unbelievably blessed to be living and working here - and don't really anticipate moving back to Phoenix anytime soon. But I love and miss you, and hope that I can come by for a visit sometime over Christmas/New Year's when I'll be back for about a couple weeks. Will you guys be in town, I wonder??
