Happy Fall Y'all!

Don't you just love the colors of fall? Especially when we have a ton of colors like this year. I'm sure it's because of all the rain, which we get tired of, but you have to admit, it makes for GORGEOUS fall foliage! :-)

I took most of these pictures yesterday when I went with Matthew's class on a field trip to Petit Jean State Park. It's outside of Morrilton, Arkansas. For those of you who have never heard "The Legend of Petit Jean", here's a link...I hope. :)

Matthew just loves going on hikes! Even though it was BITTERLY cold on our hike, he had a wonderful time and chattered all the way home. (Rather suits a "Shatterly" to chatter, huh? Hee Hee) Anyway, we hiked down to the Rock House Cave and also down the Bear Cave Trail. We got to see the "Skull" rock. The kids thought that was pretty cool! :)

For those who are following our exploits in trying to get Matt a service dog, we are at $3200 of the $11,000 we need. I'm waiting to hear back from the local Kiwanis Club to see if they'll be able to help us with a fundraiser or 2.

We had our AWANA Grand Prix on Wednesday, and Scott won 2nd Place for "Character". He didn't even know what they were talking about when they called him up to get his trophy!

It was funny!

Well, until next time, happy fall and you can e-mail me or leave comments anytime!

Love all!
