A Glimpse

It is definitely Fall here in Kansas.  The days have been nothing short of glorious temperature wise lately, and I have enjoyed every single moment of it.

This is our street.

And this is the girl who will single handedly be responsible for the squirrel's acorn shortage this winter.

To be honest, my favorite thing about Kansas is being outside.  The girls love it and I love it, too.  I don't know if it's just that we are not quite used to The House on Grant, or if too much of our heart was left at Sweet Birch Lane, but we are all so much happier when we are outside.  I am thankful God gave us a beautiful Post in which to breathe Him in.  I am thankful for wide sidewalks that little people can ride scooters and bikes and roller skates on.  I am thankful for big oak trees that produce a million or more acorns for my four year old's hands to gather up and bring inside.  (we have acorns in zip lock bags, in paper cups, under the sofa and even in our dryer) And I am thankful for long runs with my husband that take us by horse stables, train tracks (running alongside a moving train is really kinda fun) and on a gravel road that is sandwiched between a sunflower field and the Missouri River.  I love hearing the clock tower chime and little children counting up the hour.  Yes, Leavenworth is growing on us ...


  1. Your street looks gorgeous! So happy that you have your family all together again :)

  2. It is very hard to start over after leaving wonderful friends and a great neighborhood. I hope you will grow to love it as much as your last home :) It has been 3 years since we left our amazing neighborhood in NC and I have realized I will never have it again. It is a hard pill to swallow but it has helped me to look forward and not back...
