Hunting for Signs of Autumn

We are lucky enough to have plenty of natural land to discover, and this week we went walking with our little basket, collecting the leaves that turned red and the grown wheat, oat and barley.

The next morning, inspired by an article on Ryhtm of the Home, we made little fall mobiles. Mariann selected the leaves and cut the thread. She cut way too many, but what to expect? Lili just tried eating them and crushing them, making a pretty good mess.

As night grows longer, I'm actually glad the days are getting shorter, as it means Papa come back a tad earlier each day. I'm tired of feeling in battle with Mariann. Today I "gave up" at nap time, and let her listen to a movie, while trying to get Merrick naping, which he totally didn't do. It resulted in eating early and Merrick falling asleep in my arm, and I was able to take a bath with Mariann after putting him in our bed. So it was a great ending of day. Phew.

Mariann took a picture of Victoria "driving". She's getting good, uh?

So Autumn? Please come in and make yourself at home. I think I'm needing you this year.


  1. So glad to see you and Autumn getting along better. Loved the mobile.
