I ♥ September!
The mosquitoes were a bit oppressive on the trail to the river at Walnut Woods State Park today, but it was worth it when we got to the river! There was a beach to walk on. Last time we tried to hit the beach at the river, there was not much of a beach due to the rainy spring. As usual, we had the beach to ourselves. We didn't see any toads this time or any water fowl, but it was still a beautiful time in nature. It was just a short visit, about an hour--the boys were pretty fried from the busy weekend and we are still adjusting to being home again after the summer of travel. We're still finding our balance with Cliff back in school and working part-time. Both boys have been on a bandanna kick, thanks to "Survivorman" and "Man vs. Wild" shows. Holden also had his pocket knife and flint, just in case.
We are only going to be in the 70s for highs this week and I am excited. Fall is here and we have a lot to look forward to besides the usual: We are going to visit friends in SE Minnesota we haven't seen in over a year, Camden turns 6, Cliff and I celebrate our 15th Wedding Annie, then Cliff turns 40 in November.
Happy September, everyone, and love to all!
P.S. I'll try to come back to write more of an update this week.
