As I was driving to work yesterday, I had the heater on in the car and the seat warmer. It was 44 degrees outside. I've always thought that October seemed like the coldest month of the year in the midwest. After the warm summer, your blood is still thin and you're not ready for cold weather. Today had a high of 48 degrees and sunny. The sun made it seem warmer, but I still wore my "fall coat." (Growing up in California, I never had a Fall Coat. I just had a coat. Now I have a Fall Coat, a Winter Coat, and a rain coat. I've had my eye on some pretty, bright colored Spring Coats.
So, here's some highlights from the summer...
We never saw the balloons go up in the air because there was either no wind or too much wind, but we did see the Balloon Glow. So beautiful.
One of the highlights of going to Shady Shores on Labor Day is watching the moon rise. This night had a great reflection on the Lake Huron.
I can't believe how big my baby is getting. He grew 4 and 3/4 inches last year. He's such a great boy-- so caring, smart, funny, creative, and compassionate. I'm so blessed to have him as my son.
T has done a lot of growing up this past year also. Tonight he looked at me and said, "I like spending time with you mom." I've definitely been blessed with this one too! R and M are camping with the Boy Scouts tonight, so it was just the two of us. We made fondue for dinner as a treat -- cheese fondue with Italian bread and apples for dipping. And, of course, chocolate fondue for dessert with pound cake (my favorite), donut holes (his favorite), strawberries and raspberries for dipping. Yummo! We had a great time, talking and laughing. What fun!
