Fall is here, with it's traditions....

Fall is here again! With this new season in our grasp the leaves are changing colors, the winter coats are being pulled from the closets, summer clothes are being worn for the last time, hot chocolate is being made, scarves and mittens are no longer neglected and apples are ripe for the picking. Apple picking is a sign that fall has arrived.

Last Saturday Josh and I braved the cool weather, picked a bundle of apples and made a delicious apple crisp. Here is the delightful recipe that we enjoyed:
3 to 4 large apples
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. lemon juice


Picnic in the park

One of my favorite places, Big Falls. Located about 20 minutes out of town it's a perfect place to get away, fish, get some good pictures, and relax. Josh and I, got to do all of those things a few weeks ago.

With the fall weather coming it's crucial that we soak up all the warm weather we have left.


Camping is always something that I have enjoyed. As a kid my family and I camped at different places along California, where I grew up. Yosemite is still one of my favorite places. It is littered with memories of my childhood: hiking in the mountains, learning how to ride a bike, jumping off the bolder into the icy cold water. I still miss it today even being about 10 years later.

A few weeks ago I got a little taste of camping again. A group of almost 20 of us took a camping trip. But it wasn't just to hand out and relax. We had a enlightening weekend of hearing the Lord's word. We dug into scripture and strengthened not only our own faith, but each others. The Lord used that weekend to humble us, to strengthen us and to build us up in Him.

Looking at the creation that God has made opens our eyes to how much we need Him....


Little feet and little hands

I thought I would start off with who I get to work with. Working with kids has it's many rewards:

Little hands and little feet,
this is what many of my days consist of,
and with that come sticky fingers and wet kisses,
but the best of all are the smile that can brighten any day.

Getting started....

Welcome to my blog! With each entry I hope to give you a little piece of experiences or a glance into the colors of our world....
