Enjoying the last days of summer

The leaves are starting to turn from green to yellow and red and are falling from the trees to the ground. The early mornings are cool and the sun is getting slower to rise in the morning and earlier to set in the evenings. Autumn or shall I say Fall since I am in California, is just around the corner. I am celebrating these little changes, summer would be my least favorite season so I am glad for the cooler weather to come.

This week we have enjoyed the last days of summer by playing outside on the lush green grass and swimming in our pool. The water was freezing but Will stayed in the pool until his lips turned blue and he was shivering from head to toe.

I am looking forward to seeing the scenery change around us, the green will be replaced with earthy tones and I am sure pumpkins will soon start appearing at peoples front doors. Maybe I could get a pumpkin carving lesson while I am here.
