As autumn slowly says goodbye, Olive and I have been trying to enjoy every last ounce of the outdoors before the temperature drops and our yard is covered in white fluffy snow. Olive has fallen in love with her rubber boots. They really are the best thing. She loves slowly swishing through puddles and running through the long wet grass. Everyone stops and compliments her. She just smiles and says “booooottts”. I am enjoying these days, kicking up the leaves and hugging the last pumpkins to survive the frost. Fall will be back next year, but I don’t want it to end. The crisp morning air wakens my soul and the warm afternoons toasts my toes. I’m afraid we have already watched specs of white dust fall from the clouds. Before we know it winter will be here. We will be hunkered inside by the fire keeping our fingers and toes warm while we wait for signs of spring.
For now we will adventure in our rubber boots, jumping in every puddle we can find.
