Our friends the Hoffmans have a beautiful farm that we love to visit, and last week when we went, they had kittens! I don't think the kids had been around kittens much if ever. They were very friendly and so cute. And no, we did not bring any home! But fun to hold and play with for a little while.

I have driven lots and lots and lots these past couple of months. I love my morning drive and usually see a spectacular sunrise. The fall in particular has been amazing. I love seeing the farmers in their combines or other machinery even early sometimes with big lights on working in their fields. We have had great weather this October, and I'm holding on to it as long as I can! The colors have started to change, and it has been beautiful everywhere I look. The most beautiful and brilliant colors I have seen have been in the Maple trees in the front of our church. "East, West, Home's Best!"
What a great Grandparents Day weekend! It meant so much to have all 4 grandparents come this past weekend to our church and house and then to school for Grandparents Day! The kids did a program which included some cute songs and thoughts about grandparents, and then we had an awesome lunch and sort of an open house in which the guests could walk around the school and classrooms and meet the teachers and see the kids' work. We had a wonderful time together, and I was happy they got to see our school for the first time. They were impressed, and I was too! It made me appreciate once again the legacy and spiritual inheritance we have from our parents and theirs before them. I am so grateful for them. Our kids have the best grandparents!
And the school! The school excited me from the beginning and has since exceeded my expectations in every way. I love the education, the spiritual emphasis, the opportunities to do projects socially and academically, the teachers who invest themselves in the students every day, the other kids who have a good spirit, and even my job in the office in which I am surrounded by an administration that lets me see the heart behind all of the planning. Yep still happy! Even more so! I love it when people I love come together!

Happy anniversary to me! (And Matt!) Well not our official wedding anniversary but he always keeps track of how long it's been since our first date, how many months of togetherness, etc. I love that he does that and I love him. Recently he brought me flowers to my office and the card said "Happy 150 months anniversary!"
And here are some beautiful flowers growing around the school. Yes they're still blooming!

The kids got new costumes, we had a great time with the family at Freddy's Steakburgers in Maple Grove, and also included is the first picture I took of Matt with the new phone. I added a picture of the 6 Maple trees in front of our church. They are in the midst of changing colors!
