Steve has had the last 2 days off work. We planned on having the kids skip school one of the days(they have perfect attendance with 0 tardies right now) so as a family we could drive a bit north to the base of the Smoky mountains to take in some beautiful fall sites...but my school lovin' kids refused. So, Monday Steve just took me to north Atlanta to my favorite paper crafts store and then we had lunch together. Today we hung out at home this morning and then went to the gym together...nice and relaxing.
It is so beautiful here right now! Now we have lived in Washington State and in Germany but neither compare to Georgia. Now Germany was pretty in the fall but the colors only lasted 2 weeks and then the leaves were gone before Halloween. Here it's more than a month of colors and all the leaves don't all fall until the end of November. Here are a few pictures I took yesterday.
