Another Season

Fall is here, and I am reminded that it was just last year that I truly came to appreciate this season with its juicy peaches, delicious apples, and the beautiful colors in the foliage.  This year they are predicting it to be one of the best years for color, and I cannot wait! 

It has been two months since I have been here, and I have missed blogging and writing about thoughts and events going on.  However, I spent most of the summer enjoying my children on a whole new level.  I have to say, I think this is the first year that I was not ready for them to go back to school. 

This summer, E explored film making, programming, magic tricks, and working in a CAD program.  He is exploring and learning things way beyond my comprehension, of which I am totally thrilled about.  Addy, E's ever loyal assistant, was filming, watching E practice magic.   When she was not at his side, she was learning logic puzzles - of which I cannot keep enough in front of her, and building with LEGOS.   They both spent the summer immersed in books and have read though a record number of books.  Overall, it was a summer filled with discovery and learning!

I intended to run another half marathon in August, but the heat in July along with a busy schedule got the best of me and I ended up not running.   I feel OK about it though as I managed to still get some decent runs in for the summer.   I am back to exercising at the gym and as I tend to do, have a new goal in place.

With the start of school and our fall schedules, I am excited to hopefully have a little more time to blog as we have a big year ahead of us with a new baby coming anytime and a wedding in May!
