We Can Almost Go Outside...

Our son has managed to inherit so many traits from both sides of the family.  It's actually interesting to see him do something and realize that we've seen each of us do it that way.

Like when he curls his toes because he is excited.  They look like mine.  But when he stretches them out full length they are his daddy's feet.

Of all things, though, he has inherited his father's internal body temperature so far.  The one that has us running the AC during the winter.  The one that keeps me in a Snuggie all summer long while inside.

This summer has been hot.  Very very hot.  Miserable hot even for me.

If we go out for too long after he's eaten, the heat seems to "sour" his stomach and makes it so that nothing will stay down.

So we haven't exactly been out daily.

All of a sudden, from one day to the next, Autumn seems to have begun.  We are talking about a temperature change of roughly 25 degrees according to the radio.

And it is heavenly.

On the agenda this weekend: a free festival with the family in another town about 25 minutes away.  A full day outside looking at things, walking around, and getting some fresh air.

The main thing is that it's free.  I cannot tell you how important that word is right now.

So, here is to cooler weather, hopefully with no rain, and my son's first real season change.
