A Late-Summer's Evening

As the summer starts to come to an end and August completes its last days, we've been enjoying the break in the roasting temperatures. Really there is nothing better to start off a late-Summer's day with 75 degrees and then watch the sun set as an 80 degree breeze blows past. That's how our Saturday was yesterday. I love all seasons of the year, each for different reasons, and I like how here in Texas we get more of a "seasonal" range as opposed to the always "perfect" California. True certain areas of the Country rival any other place when it comes to Autumn or Spring, but here in Texas we do get a little taste of everything. It will be nice in these next couple of months to feel the brisker air come our way (one of my most favorite things in the world).

Last night, to complete an almost perfect summer day, we took a family walk down by the river not far from our house. Colton was thrilled to ride his bike free on the open path, and test his limits (sometimes he rode just a little too far out of sight--he's our adventurer). Both boys enjoyed exploring and finding "treasures" (acorns, sticks, whippoorwills). It's nice that Sean enjoys being outdoors and appreciates nature like I do. The outing was his idea and I'm glad we were able to do something so simple, yet so therapeutic.

What a nice day! We have been enjoying the cooler (when I say cooler I mean still in the 90s!) weather here too...too bad we don't have a nice river to walk to! We have to settle for a park down the street...but being outdoors is nice anyway =)

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
