Fall is here?

Strange how Fall is making its presence, isn’t it?  I’m not really sure it’s HERE yet…  But some sure signs are…


…these yummy persimmons growing in my mom’s backyard (they are also growing in Jim and Clare’s backyard but we haven’t seen them in a week!).  I cannot get enough of these… well, maybe in a few more weeks I might be done with them!  Until then, I am enjoying them daily.  The children eat them pretty often too!  I eat them like apples, but they prefer the skins peeled off.


And my new favorite fruit????  These pomegranates which are also from Mom’s garden!  Vince and I have been enjoying these each night after the children are in bed… as these are quite messy!  We can eat 2 or 3 in a sitting… OK, maybe I’m doing most of the eating!  😉  Pure sweetness, I tell ya!


Another true sign of fall???  It’s gardening time again!  The children always enoy helping me plant flowers.  We picked these up at Lowe’s last weekend and planted them when Morgan came home form school.


Ethan always has to take part in our activities….


Morgan tried very hard to keep her uniform dirt free!  She actually did well…until…


It was mud pie making time!


Again, here’s Ethan giving his input as to what should go in this mud pie…



Don’t you just love those boots?!  Matthew’s hoeing away… and trying to avoid the drip system!


And those beautiful leaves that make crunchy noises when the children jump on them…  they are awesome!


Fall is decorating your scarecrow????  Morgan thought he needed “more…”


Enjoying the white puffy “clouds…”  Matthew insisted he saw a dinosaur, while Morgan just saw pancakes…hmm, I’ll have to check it out next!


Ethan’s stinky face!


He thought it was pretty funny…


What better way to end the fun day?   Rub a dub dub, 3 children in a tub…
