Some Joys of Nature in the Fall

Every year....I take Chloe to my Grandma's house
for leaf jumping (playing in the leaves)
When I was small it began as raking and ended as leaf jumping,
Listen to them crunch
The quiet before the storm

Sheer enjoyment.....

We talk about how this.....
and this.......

become this.
It was bound to happen.......
the shoes are coming off.


Cotton.....Chloe has been begging me to stop and pick some cotton from the side of the road
Well...this cotton does not belong to me....and seeing as I don't want to get shot....I always say no.....even though I would really love for her to experience it.
On the way home from a family reunion Sunday....PaPa Jerry (not afraid of getting shot) stopped and picked Chloe a stalk.
Fascination Chloe and in me.....Isn't God's creation amazing....Cotton...grows as a plant....made into string...made into material....made into lots of stuff.
Enjoy some of the Joys of Fall....and if you need some cotton just tell PaPa.
have a happy day
Pin It!


Hi, I'm Amy! said...

I stumbled upon your adorable blog this morning :) Love the leaf pics! I have a 2 year old little boy and we did the same thing last weekend. I noticed from your Etsy store that you are in NC. I am as well, the Western part of the state. No cotton around here :)
