Fall in MN

It's fall in MN, my favorite time of year.  The leaves have not turned yet but soon the brilliant colors will be everywhere.  Every fall I wear a sweatshirt with shorts and start to pull my coats and vests out of storage.  I love running in the cooler weather and since my car has no air conditioning, my commute has become much more pleasant.  Heidi and I already took Jackson to an apple orchard, which is a Minnesota fall tradition for most people.  You pretty much walk around and pick/eat apples but somehow it's fun.  Fall in MN is great but winter is coming and that isn't much fun.  

So far my Denver Broncos have started the season poorly with two losses in games where they played sloppy and made multiple mistakes.  I am hopeful that my boys can pull it together and make the playoffs for the first time in five years.  In other football news, I returned to Fantasy Football after a year off.  My team is terrible and I have yet to win but it is fun.

Jackson continues to grow and pick up new skills all the time.  He loves his little blanket, Lovey.  We make him leave Lovey in his crib but we will often notice that he has disappeared from the first floor, only to reappear a minute later with Lovey held behind his back.  Every day he picks up new words and his sweet little voice is the best.  The kid loves to laugh and especially loves behind held upside down by his Mama.  When I do it, he does laugh some but then points at Heidi to have her do it instead.  The kid is such a joyful child and has a sweet spirit.  Lately he has decided he does not like to eat so we hope that phase ends soon.  Hopefully baby #2 will be as easy as Jackson.

My Financial Peace University class is going well.  There are a dozen people in the class and everyone is participating fully, so that is great.  I am glad to have this opportunity.
