The moon was absolutely astounding last night. It was big and bright like a kick ball in the sky that longed to be played with. My grandmother has a white tin roof, and the moonlight danced on her roof. It was nearly breathtaking. What a beautiful autumn night it was last night.
With that being said, autumn in North Carolina is absolutely beautiful. All the leaves are starting to change colors, float through the air on their descent from the trees, and gather on the ground. Soon a cascade of colors will be visible on trees and on the ground. The air is beginning to be a little clearer, and the evenings are cooler. Fall, harvest, Halloween, and Thanksgiving are my favorite times of the year!
On Monday, we will take my daughter's preschool class to the apple orchard. With this field trip, they will take a wagon ride through the apple orchard and pumpkin patch, go through a corn maze, sample apple cider, get an age appropriate farm lesson, and get to pick apples. I am so excited! I am looking forward to pumpkin pictures!! I will post some as soon as we return.
On another note, my MaMaw MeMe returned from Texas today. It was wonderful to see her, and I think she was equally excited to see us. She has been gone since September 2. She is blind, so she depends a lot on her other 4 senses extensively. When she left, Eli (my 2 month old) was just a little guy, weighed maybe 9 pounds or so. I placed him in her arms, all 13 pounds... she says, "This is not the baby I left!" I told her that he had grown a LOT since she had been gone. She said she could tell by feeling his feet, that now they were huge.
Here's to a wonderful Wednesday!
