I have been dying to get outside and take lots of beautiful Autumn photographs, but the weather continues to be precipitationish, as it has been all year.
The colors are just beginning to be quite noticeable, but it is cloudy and drizzly. We were just talking last night about going on some picture-taking jaunts, but the weather is going to have to be more cooperative at this rate.
We are enjoying our new office cleaning job. With this one, we get up nice and early on Sunday morning and get it done before church. Feels like we still have the whole day.
So we used it very happily later on. Some of us gathered together for a birthday party for the afternoon, evening, night, and part of this morning as well. The kids have all learned a little trick. They just make themselves scarce so that a mom doesn't see them and say, "OK, kids, we really need to be getting home." On a farm, it's easy for them to do. Lot's of places to go and be busy in.
We ate too much, and we played board games, then the kids all went out and played Airsoft wars, Hide and Go Seek, Tag, and card games until the wee hours of the morning.
One thing I really love about our kids and young adults is, not only are they the most mature kids you are going to meet when it comes to family and responsibility, but they also never attained that disdainful attitude that so many teens get. These kids still no how to play and have fun together, then they come in and love on their families as well.
Here are most of them, some had to leave early, ready to go have some Airsoft fun.
And here is one of them, who returned with a possible broken bone from jumping down and twisting his ankle. Did you miss him in the photo above? He will be seeing the doctor today.
Here's my crazy little hooligan.
Slow morning around here. Only project on the agenda is working on sewing sleeves on my bodice.
