Sunday brought with it beautiful, cooler weather which made it bearable to be outside for longer than 10 minutes.  We went hiking on some new trails that we found not far from home.  Yesterday after school the windows were open, just beckoning for us to come out.  We swung and jumped on the tramp and later Cameron and I took a long bike ride.  Nobody wanted to go in because the weather was so perfect and her in Virginia you have to take advantage of these kind of days.  I'm so glad we did.  In honor of the fall feeling, I made a new wreath for the door and bought some yellow mums for our front porch.  The vortex of holidays that September brings makes me giddy with excitement- Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas- I love them all!
Also, Gavin had a big day yesterday.  After wiggling around for what seemed like months he finally lost one of his top teeth!  He just let me rip it right out of there without even wincing.  This is number three for him and also the tooth that was injured years ago when he banged it backwards falling onto our marble fireplace. We are crossing our fingers that the permanent tooth is not discolored like the baby one was.  He sure was excited for the tooth fairy to come last night!

I feel that chill in the air and it makes me absolutely giddy! We made it through another miserable summer and it's time to slow down and wear more comfortable clothes. :) I love your new wreath--super cute! And hooray for a visit from the Tooth Fairy!
