It's the first day of fall! I am so excited because I love fall! It is such a pretty season and so cozy, too. I think one of my very favorite months is October! I am so looking forward to the beautiful fall leaves
all the cute trick or treaters
anything apple...apple cider, apple pie, apple dumplings, etc...
fun fall clothes
fires in the fireplace
and so much more!
And, of course, on November 14th, Ashley is getting married so that is going to make fall even more special this year. She is getting her wedding portrait made tomorrow so I can't wait to see how those turn out! :)
The weather here has felt like anything BUT fall lately though. It has been so humid and cloudy. Uuuuggghh! But at least we're not getting any of the flooding that they are getting in Atlanta.
Today is actually the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Hugo.
I will never forget that! I was pregnant with Mark and Ashley was about 2 years old. We were camped out behind our couch in the den all night trying to stay away from the sliding glass door and the storm was just raging outside. We had a little portable radio that we were listening to. Our power got knocked out for about a week and alot of Charlotte was damaged or destroyed! That is the only hurricane I have ever really lived through.
So....has anyone gotten the swine flu??
It is really going around here. We have several students at my school that have it and the middle school near our house has it going around, too! I have been trying to teach my kids how to wash their hands and cough into their elbow and we have been dosing up on hand sanitizer. I hope no one in my class gets it!
