My mom and I took the boys out on the trails in our back acreage last weekend while she was up visiting; I had grabbed my camera hoping to snap some pictures of the beautiful leaves. There was only one problem....the leaves were all gone. I breathed a deep sigh of regret for not getting out there sooner and started walking.
The kids ran and ran and found milk weed just right for blowing and leaves on the ground just right for collecting. As I watched them I realized (once again) that there is magic and beauty in every stage of every season...you just have to look for it.
Happy weekend, everyone!
