One recent afternoon we headed outside and took some pictures of the Autumn leaves and our sweet boy of course. I wanted to document our last Fall for awhile. I am going to miss the Georgia Autumns. Oh leaves, please don't go...

One of the things I've looked forward to for quite some time is taking Grant to a pumpkin patch in the Fall. We went to Burt's Pumpkin Farm in Dahlonega, GA.
He loved picking up the leaves and putting them in his mouth more than anything I think.
He did not want to keep on the cool poor boy hat I got him. Such a crying shame because it was so stinkin' cute.

The days fly by and Grant is nearly one whole year old.
It pains me to think he won't always be this little...that his hand won't always fit in mine or that I won't always have his fingerprints on my windows and that the day will come when he won't want me to rock him to sleep any longer.
Thinking about all this also reminds me of my great responsibility to him, to make the most of every moment and training opportunity for the few years I have with him.
"Your task as a mother...is to build a man out of the raw materials available in this delightful little boy, stone upon stone. This task should be your highest priority for a period of time. It will not always be required of you. Before you know it, that child at your feet will become a young man who will pack his bags and take his first steps into the adult world." Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson

After 10 weeks of intense training, Josh and I met our goal of running a 10K (6.2 miles). We ventured down to Disney's Race for the Taste on October 11th and ran through some of the parks there.
It was hot, humid, hard and exhilirating. I never thought I could do it, but we crossed the finish line together. It felt so good to set a goal and accomplish it.
Now to decide if we will train for a half marathon next. Maybe?
