Change In The Air ...

We've had a little hint of autumn this week.  Day time highs in the 70's .. and nights dipping down into the 40's.  Summer is not over as we're supposed to hit the 90's again soon .. but it was refreshing to feel the coolness of the evening air .. and see a shallow fog bank blanketing the nearby lake.  The crickets and frogs are singing their halleluiah chorus to the Lord of Heaven and Earth .. such lowly .. yet beautiful harmony they make.

Tuesday Nathan heads back to school.  His interventionist will continue to work at home with him for the month of September .. then he will transition to attending two afternoons a week at a local facility that helps people with developmental disabilities further their life skills.  There he will practice cooking and washing laundry and a host of other skills.  Eventually he can get a job with them and earn some money.  Good practice for our growing teen.  He went shopping with the Mr. and me today for six hours ... behaved beautifully!  Just to think a year ago we were very limited to our outings with him.  Now he's turned into such a mature young man.

My computer is acting up and not letting me post any new photos.  Will have to see about getting it repaired or replaced.  Too bad as it's not that old! 

Hubby and I have a little list started for our weekly date days.  Next week we hope to go kayaking.  What's up in your world?


“The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.”Psalms 145:18-19

Mrs. Mac, your world sounds peaceful. That's wonderful news about Nathan...it must do your heart good.

Getting ready for fall decorating tomorrow with an extra day off of work. Autumn is one of my favorite times of year.
