This girl LOVES to sew. Anytime I have my sewing machine on, this girl is glued to my side. She recently decided she wanted a notebook just like her sister had. She picked out the fabric, I helped her with the cutting and reading the instructions and she did all the sewing. It turned out great and gave me a chance to spend some quality time with one of my favorite girls in the world!

 We had a beautiful, clear sky to watch the eclipse from our front yard.

Running, running and more running

Karolyn ran as a part of the 4th-6th grade runners during two different meets this year. She loved it this year and especially loved having her special friend with her.

 Future otter runners!

Fall Colors at Maplewood State Park

 We all managed to make it up the hill!

 The kids loved finding the geocache.

 The water was cold, but the kids enjoyed throwing sticks and rocks in and watching the water ripple.

We were able to enjoy the fall colors with my parents during their trip up to visit us. We had a beautiful fall day!
