The Children Have Returned Home

Right on the money -- fall is my favorite time of year. The crispness of the air, the beauty of the colors of the earth, BYU football . . . Go Cougars!

You Belong in Fall

Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times...

You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings

Whether you're carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

Oh yeah! My brother-in-law, Aaron, likes to go out of his way to plan a carved pumpkin for me every year. The pumpkin is always centered around my love of BYU football and his extreme distaste for the same. Always something to do with a U of U football player. Oh, the joy of fall.

The children have gone home. It was hard to say goodbye but as I caught some kind of creeping crud yesterday I'm actually kind of grateful. Baby Elias was a doll beyond all belief. He is eight months old and truly one of the loves of my life. Each of the children brought a lot of joy, and frustration, to our lives over the last six days.

For childless couples like ourselves, this was a precious time for us. But I am forced to remember one of the relatively few pluses of not having children. Sleep. I crave sleep. Lots and lots of sleep! Elias was teething the entire time . . . we had fun!
