What a Difference a Few Days Makes
On Monday I posted this picture of the tree in front of my house. I LOVE FALL and I love seeing the colors change. And, I'm so glad I took the picture because the temperatures are falling (and obviously, so are the leaves). Here's what the tree looked like this morning.
It's funny because when I get up in the morning I look at my iPod and scroll through the weather sites I have bookmarked which are all the different cities where my kids live (6 different ones) Quite often the little Elder and our temperatures are pretty close. The little Texans have been the warmest ; ) I'm enjoying the cooler temperatures here, but I REALLY don't want to think about what's coming. Soon it will be time to get my little spikes out for my running shoes.
Speaking of our little Elder, he's doing great which makes this mama very happy. I'm so grateful that we get those weekly e-mails. It's hard for me to believe he's been out for 16 weeks. And I get so excited when he sends me a photo CD. In the one I received recently I found this picture. I love his little face. He and his companion found this little kitten under their car. What makes me laugh is they named the kitten after a former Bishop in one of their Wards who they think is awesome because he is so missionary focused and is always so willing to help out with the work ; )
He's having a great experience. And I just have to add--I LOVE THAT YOUNG MAN.
