It’s really feeling like fall here in the Midwest. The air is chilly, the trees are colorful, and the leaves are falling!

While planting our garden this spring, Mark decided to plant some pumpkin seeds he had left from the fall. We’ve never grown pumpkins before but decided to give it a shot. Mark planted two little “mounds” of seeds and look what we got! We got 17 of the most beautiful pumpkins! It was so fun to watch them grow over the summer!

Speaking of October, don’t forget to tell your friends about the October contest I’m running! And make sure you read through the comments that have been posted since last Thursday. Some of the “wild” things our fellow moms have done are hilarious! I’ll run the contest through next Tuesday and select a winner from those who have commented. May we be encouraged to live on the wild side more often!
