Seasons are a wonderful thing. I must admit, my mind has been favoring colored leaves, the scent of homemade pumpkin pie, turkey crafts, & family togetherness. I even have a few measly autumn-ish décor items around our apartment, but when I open the window to a blazing sun coupled with dirt in the face, it’s a little hard to get in the holiday spirit. Is Thanksgiving really almost here? Oh, it’s hard to believe. (I think I’ll make a pumpkin pie out of squash & invite the missionaries over.)
These days it’s all about the end of school in sight, sunblock, swimming, visiting the farm(s), & looking for iguanas. (That hole behind Carlie is an iguana hole. Um, what? I didn’t realize that until after I took this picture.)
We didn’t see one, but maybe next time. Jared said they’re all over the place. Carlie had fun picking flowers in her MC Hammer pants & penguin shoes that I can’t get rid of.
On the other hand, the farms are in full swing down here. Wheat harvest is right around the corner…corn & soy beans were planted several weeks ago…it’s a beautiful time of year.
AND last but not least, I present to you an old shelter used during the annual youth treks. Yes, yes…very authentic looking. It makes me want to wear a sombrero & ride a mule. (Hmmm…maybe I will.)
