September and part of October

I say this every month, I think, but I just can't believe how fast time has flown this year.  It's already mid-October!  SLOW DOWN, time!!!

Some pictures from the past few weeks...

Eli has been playing soccer again this fall, and he loves it!  Two of his church friends are on his team (Ethan and CJ).

Crazy hair night at Awana!

He won for craziest hair in Sparks.  He came home and said, "Mommy!  I was the crazy hair-est!"  :)

I love peeking into his room and seeing things like this (coloring on the floor):

A random shot of Hank, who feels that he has just as much of a right to the comfortable furniture and pillows as we do!

Another room-scene that I love...  Eli coloring at his desk, which was MY desk that my dad built for me as a girl.

We went to the Texas State Fair and took CJ along with us.

Entering the insanity of the Midway:

We rode the ferris wheel- the largest ferris wheel in North America.  

I love this picture, even though it's blurry- they're so happy.

Big Tex, Medium CJ, and Little Eli.  :)

Their soccer team picture- complete with a silly hand-under-the-chin pose for the front row.  :)

PLENTY of this going on all the time:

My mom and sister Kelly and I got to go on a short trip to Maine last week to visit my grandparents.  It was just perfect!  Here are Kelly and me halfway up a hike we took:

The three of us before a really fun dinner out.

 We spent a day at the beach, too.  I love the beach, no matter the weather!

Kelly and I walked 3 miles down to this pier, and 3 miles back (duh).

We were so blessed to be able to see this GORGEOUS sunset one night- it was insane!

We spent a day at the Fryeburg Fair, which was a blast!  Lots of animals...

An excessive amount of eating...

And just an all-around fun and memorable day with these people I love so much!  I'm SO thankful for our time together!

And now, despite the temperature STILL being in the mid-90s, we continue on with our fall!  Have a great day!
