I love the cooler weather, but the one part I hate about it all the socks. I never knew we had so many and how on earth they end up in places like under the hutch in the dining room, or next to the cat food dish. But lots of socks laying around also reminds me of the fact that there are a lot of little feet in this home still, and I'm thankful for that!
This was an interesting season. We got the stomach bug as a family, one after another. But it was a tricky little bug. We were sick for a few days, thought we were all better, and then had like one or two more days of sickness again! But we all survived, and honestly I almost forgot about this (posting months later). Just goes to show that when the world seems like it is ending...this too shall pass.

Please laugh with me on this one. My 8-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on October 12. Just after the doctor told us, my son looked to me and said, "This is going to be an adventure!" You got that right, son! I'm not posting this for sympathy, but just to share the irony of life. I do keep thinking about the Jonathan Swift quote above...and even in this it still applies because there is so much to be thankful for.
