Autumn is here and it's beautiful! And cold. The leaves are everywhere and my kids are having a great time raking piles and jumping in them. My oldest loves mazes so every fall he makes a maze out of the leaves and when he's done we attempt to navigate it.
My three year old Luke has become a determined tree climber with no fear of heights. He's picked a small tree in the back yard and calls it "Lukey's Tree." He takes advantage of my mommy distraction moments and climbs up high before I can stop him. So far he's showing such amazing toddler climbing talents that Joe and I are both awed and appalled.
Last week I tried four new crockpot recipes that were ok but NOT loved by all. I think we all universally hated the Lentil Soup but the other recipes were ok. Joe loved the Crockpot Chicken Tacos while I did not. I'm not trying anything new this week but I want to get back to testing more slow cooking recipes next week.
