September Whirlwind

It is almost the end of September, and as always, it has been a strenuous but beautiful month. It's been several years since we've had such a summery start to the school year (although maybe we had one last year!). Fall officially began last week with high temperatures and I was dressing in summer clothes to survive in my warm classroom. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and today seems to signal the end of the sunshine and the beginning of the typical rains.
Here are a few September moments:
Last night we went to see Casting Crowns,
opened by Matt Redmond.
It was a very good concert.
I spied a field of ripe pumpkins as I drove from my parents' house on the weekend and just had to stop. Pumpkins are well-known for jack o' lanterns and pies, but I prefer them like this. A beautiful, happy part of fall!

I made Little Bear a pair of shorts from his ripped jeans; the torn legs inspired him to contemplate a new career with his brother! The two of them are immersed in school stuff and seem to be doing well.
We celebrated Big Bear's birthday with dinner at his favorite carnivore restaurant. Mmmm!
As for me, I've been coughing for five weeks and am quite SICK of the whole thing! However, I've been assured by those who know that I'm not dying of consumption, and continue to hack away with the knowledge that it's quite "normal" to cough for this long. Sigh.
Our house is still in the transformational process; Big Bear is outside working as I write. Hopefully, we'll be able to get it painted before winter sets in...
Enjoy the advent of spring in the land of perpetual sunshine!

LOVED these photos Ange of the North! All those pumpkins! Your lads are a hoot. And that was a real keeper of a photo on BB's birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the man himself. Sounds like it was an enjoyable day...all our best wishes for the year ahead!

Do you need to sit in the sun for awhile? That cough doesn't sound good. I know where you can find some guaranteed sunshine!!!:) xo
