We are fully into FALL down here and loving every minute of it. The weather is so so so nice! Bright and sunny and warm without humidity. Beautiful. October is my favorite month in Georgia and this one is not letting me down!
This past weekend we made the annual trip to Burt's Pumpkin Farm. I love this tradition. We've gone every year since Spencer was 1. We've been there when it's been super hot and freezing cold. Bob and I were reminiscing about the first time we took Zane. It was so cold that we had him wrapped in multiple blankets inside a baby carrier inside my coat! But he went! This year we got there early before the crowds and the boys had a blast. Beckett walked around like he owned the place. Zane was super pleasant. The big boys were cooperative and ultra-focused on finding just the right pumpkin for their jack-o-lantern. We even got Berber and Pappy to go with us - the DAY before Berber's knee replacement.
Speaking of Berber... thanks so much for all the prayers and well-wishes. She came through the surgery with flying colors and is now back home rehabbing. Beck and I went to see her last night and she looks great!
I used the colors of Spencer's football team in this year's pumpkin collage. Partly because they are great fall colors, but partly because they have a HUGE HUGE HUGE game coming up this weekend. I haven't been this excited about a youth football game in a LONG time. We are playing a rival team from just down the road. Both teams are undefeated and sit atop the league rankings. Spencer's team is also ranked #4 in the state by the youth sports media organization, Born to Compete. (The Born to Compete organization is a big deal down here!) We recently found out that Born to Compete is going to make this game their "Game of the Week"! The parents are organizing noise makers and signs and extra people to cheer. I have obtained knight costumes for my little boys so they can root on the Paladins in style! AND it's going to be 80 degrees and sunny. Sounds pretty perfect! Let's hope we can bring home a big win!
