What are Fall days made of?

School days & trees 
with colorful falling leaves.

Touchdowns, tackles
archers and apples.

Hunting for grouse,
a warm fire in the house.

That's what our Fall days are made of.
(among other things)

Lilly & Johnathan, off to 2nd & 3rd grades.
The kids have enjoyed some good apple picking at Mr. Jacobson's this year.
We've never had so many apples pass through our kitchen.
Another fantastic football season came to an end last night. 
Mason & Eric played outstandingly well.
I have so much more to say on that in a post of it's own. 
Johnathan, Lilly & Beau, along with their cousin Jaegar, went on a trip to the pumpkin patch with Granny.  They had a great time. 
We built a scare-crow, and are getting our costume ideas squared away for Halloween.  Important stuff for 4-8 year olds.
Fun in leaf piles just never gets old.
October 1st we attended my aunt Terry's annual "Booya." 
Her booya kettle is quite impressive, bubbling & steaming over a wood fire.
And the booya itself was delicious. 
Just ask Johnathan, who was most enthusiastic as he devoured his.
Archery season once again.  
Mason, 13 years, arrowed this beautiful doe perfectly. 
This means food for the family, along with the many grouse & woodcock he & Eric have been adding to the freezer & crock pot daily.
