Last week we missed our walk because we were on vacation, which was wonderful, and full of family moments that I will always treasure. However, upon returning to our routine, I couldn't help but notice the park seemed to have changed. Autumn is beginning to set in, and the maple trees, which line the paths are changing in the most beautiful ways.
It seemed so strange at first; how could we be here, at this season already? Hasn't the year just begun, and now the leaves are already preparing for their decent back into the earth?
Then I turned my eyes back down, to my two little ones, running, laughing and playing. Little man was a baby when the year started, he was just sitting up and starting to crawl, and here he was running with his big sister.
She was just in preschool, which somehow seems so much younger and so distant from kindergarten to me now that it's starting. Even though we are homeschooling, and she won't be away from home, I still find myself stunned that my girl is a 5 year old!
Life is full of different seasons. I am so grateful to be in this one!
