As we drove up to the park tonight, I glanced at the temperature display on the minivan...81º and it was 7pm. That's almost as perfect as it can be.
We gathered as a school co-op for our "Beginning Of The New School Year" get-together. A few loosely-organized games were tried and treats were enjoyed by one and all. I spent most of the time with my youngest as he became quickly bored with the games and decided the monkey bars was the best way to remedy the situation.
I'm usually on a little hill to view the sunsets. Tonight I was in the valley and seeing the huge expanse of sky as the sun set into the western horizon was absolutely beautiful.
The food, the games, the sunset was all made better by the perfect weather. I love this time of year--love it! I know many people love spring, but not for me. To me, spring means it's just going to get hotter. Autumn is so much better because it means it's finally going to cool off. Tonight was only the beginning.
