Days Like This Are Numbered and Few

I'm confident that we can't expect to enjoy 70 degree weather for too many more days in November but we'll take advantage of it while we can.

The boys have been building "fires" on the deck and collecting acorns and seeds. I just hope that seven acorns will be enough for our long cold winter.

I think boys are born with some sort of connection to rocks that stays with them even until they are grown men. Have you ever been to the mountains with a man who didn't stop to throw a rock down into the valley? Have you ever been to a lake with a man who didn't stop to check his rock throwing ability but lugging a large rock toward the middle or a tiny rock as far as he could?

My boys are attracted to rocks too. The rock collection ends up in the house and then sit collecting dust on Nathan's desk. Well, there ya go! They found a use!!

I have often been fascinated by the need men have to throw rocks! Maybe you can solve the mystery as you seem to be a boy expert!

Nathan has an entire collection of rocks, only he calls them dinosaur bones!

Alright I have a correction to make to your boys love rocks theory. Girls love rocks too. I will be your first example after all that is what I buried in our 10year reunion time capsel. second is Zoe. I can't even tell you how many times in a parking lot I have stopped and waited on her to pick up a cool new rock or how many times I have pulled them from her pockets while doing the laundry. But for the most part okay it probably is a boy trait. I love that Isaac is trying to get warm by his fire though!
