September is here and I’m SO excited!!  Pumpkin carving, colorful autumn leaves, breaking out my boots and sweaters and getting to decorate the house with all my fall favorites.  It is a beautiful season that almost makes up for all the rain that is coming. Almost.

But before I send the kids off to school and open some apple cider, I wanted to share my August Instagram Photo A Day Pics.

August was a busy month! A few of my favorite moments included:

Our weekend away at Skamania Lodge.  Tyson completely surprised me with a fully planned getaway for our 19th anniversary.

Watching our youngest become a teenager.  Happy 13th!

And seeing this kid smile without braces for the first time in 2 years.

Today the kids are kicking off their first day of school and each year gets more bittersweet. Next year will be my last “first day of school” with Evan. *sigh*

But I’m crazy proud of both of them and can’t wait to see what the school year has in store.

So Happy Fall, Y’all!  What are your favorite Fall traditions?  What are you most looking forward to this season?  Are you playing along with the Instagram Photo-a-day Challenge yet?  I want to hear all about it.
