Fall

Oh my goodness! I can't believe it is the first of October! It's crazy how fast the time flies when I don't have anything but work keeping me grounded with the days. I know there are so many people who have blogged about fall and what they love about fall but I just can't believe fall is already here. It seems like when I was in elementary school fall always took so long to get there after summer vacation was over but then school seasons always seemed to drag out. I'm sure it seemed like it was taking forever because I was looking forward to all of the upcoming holidays that fall would bring. Now as a parent it doesn't really matter if I'm looking forward to anything or not because time just goes at a speed that I didn't even know existed. My baby boy is almost 4 and I've been married for 6 years. So crazy. I don't have many things to look forward to specifically in the upcoming holidays other than the fact that I will get to see my families and that is always an enjoyable time. And my little family is going to take a mini-vacation to Kansas City in a few weeks to catch a Chiefs game so that to should be really fun. Then come Halloween/Thanksgiving and Christmas time I am excited because Leo is finally getting to a point where he can actually understand what the holidays are for and what they stand for. It's just nice seeing him come in to his own as a little boy. So although I am very excited about fall being here and all the awesomeness that it brings I am going to ask for a reprieve against time. I would like for it to slow down just a little bit so I have a few more minutes/days/hours to spend with my little man before he's not so little anymore! (which if you asked him now would be now because he's a big boy!)

Oh my goodness. I always look at my calendar and go "Umm. What happened to September/The Summer/2008/Fill-in-the-Blank.
And I hear it only gets worse with kids - I'm sure you can attest.
Goodness. Let's just enjoy the fall and not rush the holidays!
P.S. Your lil' family is seriously so cute.
