Falling into Fall

As I type this I am staring out my big picture window at a huge tree that, I swear everytime I look up, has changed colors.   Fall is in full swing.  We have managed to fly through the first two months of school and soccer season.  
 Audrey {#85} played most of the season at Mid-field.  She ran more this year then the past 3 years combined being on the big field and playing 11 on 11. 

After convincing Carissa to give Soccer a shot again she lucked out on getting on an amazing team.  The girls were so wonderful and the coaches were great. 
So proud of how well my daughters embraced being on a team!!
Between soccer and school we managed to squeeze in a trip to Portland for the twins 3rd birthday.  You can't have a bad day at a Pumpkin Patch and it was even better with family.


 Such a beautiful family!!
Since that was the beginning of October we couldn't let the whole month pass without just one more trip to a farm.  Carissa and I went to The Farm in Snohomish with her class and had such a good time so we took the rest of the clan back and explored.

Oh, the knee brace... post for another day...
Girls attempting to ride 4 wheel bikes in the mud...  glad Dad is willing to do the pushing.

It wasn't hard for Audrey to pose for this picture.  I think being 11 is a license to be Grumpy/moody/cranky at least 1 time a day.

They still are goof balls around each other.
My prayer - under this glorious blue sky - is that never changes.  I hope they always stay close and are most kind to each.  That they love each other MORE then they want to at times. 

 Now off I go to sip my Pumpkin Spice Latte - this is the life :)
