On the verge of the fall season, I thought I would
make a list of things that I enjoy about fall.

1. Colorful Leaves.
We don't live in a black and white world.
God created the brilliance of color.

2. Jeans and Sweatshirts.
It's really about the cooler temperatures.
Warm in the sun. Cool in the shade.

3. Football.
Friday night, under the lights, high school football.
Throw in a hot cocoa and funnel cake.

4. The Pumpkin Patch.
Columbus Day at Hozaks with Samantha and the kids.

5. Thanksgiving Day
Yes, it's late November, but it's all fall.
Pilgrims, Pumpkins, Turkey, Stuffing...

6. Hunting Season.
Whether you're hunting deer, turkey,
rabbit, grouse, squirrel, etc... and no

Fall is hunting season.

7. Routine.
With school back in session, a new
routine begins. Back from the freedom
summer brings. Fall is about refocusing.

These are but a few of the reasons I enjoy
the autumn season.

Yesterday marked another milestone day
in the Trimble homestead. Numero Tres

Lukenstein) went for his first day of

Yes, the hardest working 5 year old
in America... and most productive
Trimble house-cleaning child, went
for his first day in big K.

A few tears were shed. And then when
I realized I was to be home alone with
a crazy two (soon to be three) year old,
I cried a little more.

Three are now part of the schooling world.

Leaving one behind.

Time churns on like a locomotive full
of life saving importance... slowing
no where along the way.

After all the summer was... ALL that
summer was... I will cherish the
one on one time with the family
clown; and certainly miss the hours
separated from the trio of Trimble
