Every time I blink this little girl has changed and grown. I'm not sure where the tiny little baby went, but I am sure enjoying this sweet 8 month old. She loves going on walks with her siblings on brisk Autumn afternoons. We walk past the last of the apples, holding onto the trees, half rotten, We always check to see how high the creek is rising and how full each puddle is. Finally, when noses are pink and cheeks are icy we head back to the house.
I am so enjoying seeing some of the fruit of all the work Titus has put into learning to read this year. He has been really dedicated, even when I want to groan at the sight of How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. I love writing little not to him, and getting notes in return.
The days are so short and rainy I have been sending them out to play whenever there is a break in the weather, and sometimes when there is not. Warm coats and dry boots make a little rain a bit more bearable. These wet and muddy afternoons have created plenty of memories and dirty laundry!
