Is it Fall?

I have a sweatshirt on.  Tonight there was a certain chill in the air as we watched the kids kick the soccer ball around the field.  Jay had his sweatshirt on.  Mac had his sweatshirt that has been passed down from Aiden who received from Salem who got it from Justice (that thing is indestructible, ok, it is a little faded, but it’s a blue hoodie, I just couldn’t get rid of it).  Aiden just spent the time running up and down the field kicking the soccer ball the whole time.  Jay even mentioned he thought Aiden was the best dribbler of the boys at that age so far.  The thing is....there are some things this week that have felt like fall, in a legitimate way.  I bought 2 cans of pumpkin at the grocery store this week.  I have corn hanging over the doorway, drying out.  We are wearing sweatshirts because we are cold, not because we are supposed to.  I have homework, and so does Jay and so do our elementary aged children, and if they don’t have homework then I give them some (I am really hardcore making Salem count ice cream scoops while secretly doing math :)).  Jay is eating sourdough pretzels with hummus and that seems strangely fallish in some weird way.  There are no pumpkins hanging around.  The trees are not changing color and I would not say that the air is crisp, but this is more than we have had in the past and we are relishing it.  We even had some good flavored coffee the other day.  It was amazing and made it feel like the fall!  
To Autumn and all its flavors, smells, feels, foods and lovebursts!

Here is a link to the highlights of our summer!
