yay for chillier weather and finally a real start to fall! now i can actually do all of the wonderful fall things i've been writing about for the past month or so. bonfires here we come!

we actually kicked fall off quite well yesterday. we took the high schoolers to a corn maze - or an amazing maize maze whichever you prefer - and then picked out pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, and carved them at youth group last night. next time i'll try to remember to rent a fire hose to clean up afterwards...

in any case. it was a lot of fun trekking through the maze with them, and watching there excitement as they jumped in and through a giant trough of corn. you know those plastic ball pits they have? this was like one of those, only with dried corn kernels.

i also squeezed in a 12ish mile run after church yesterday which actually felt pretty good for the majority of the time - much much better than my 11 mile run last saturday. i can't believe we're less than 3 weeks away from the half-marathon. craziness.

hope your autumn is
