It’s difficult to condense a season into a few photos. And, to look at these, you might think everything looks ever-fragrant and all-smiles at our house. A more thorough post would include snaps of dirty laundry & dusty corners and a soundbite of a squabble or two. This is just a brief, pictorial record of an imperfect family, living day to day by God’s grace. We have to ask forgiveness when we step on each other’s toes and get selfish or lazy about loving one another. Anyway, here are a few random pieces of fall 2018. You have to catch this fast-moving life while you can.

Bowls cover breakfast eggs, lovingly scrambled by a repentant Mama. (She had barked at her little boy when he asked her three times if she remembered her promise to make him an egg in the morning.)
Ms. Road Construction looked so fetching in her hat and trousers that I had to snap a photo. What else was there to do for ten minutes while we waited in line?
My dear daughter is celebrating her 23rd birthday tomorrow. “Where has the time gone?”
We invited some dear little people to play with us last week while their Mama went out to lunch. Back when I had my babies, I didn’t have such an awkward time getting up & down off the floor. Back then, I didn’t have to grab my reading glasses to see what the puzzle looks like. I have missed these little happy little folks who give you the opportunity to get down on the floor and make animal noises.
