Today was cooler, but the past two days had been beautiful for late autumn. The children took advantage of the weather and spent considerable time outside. Kieran and I went out to play briefly, but because I had work to do, he was stuck inside a bit more.
Here’s a picture from Saturday; He’s gazing wistfully through the screen door, yearning to go out and eat leaves enjoy the outdoors.
In previewing a book for Kaira, I found a description that captured the weather we’d enjoyed Friday and Saturday:
“It had been the kind of afternoon that comes like a benediction at the very end of autumn. Alice had been unable to resist it.” (From A Murder for Her Majesty by Beth Hilgartner)
Today was cooler and overcast. A perfect day for tortilla soup, and teaching the children the game of Aggravation. (No, they weren’t being aggrivating, it is a classic board game.)
