We've had a busy start to Fall. Weddings, birthdays, baby showers, school field trips, our first year of soccer - you know the drill. There's just something about October though. The leaves start to change and fall. That breeze. Oh, that breeze. Windows open. At home AND in the car. Radio up. Deer season. October baseball - because....CUBS.
Octobers are good for the soul y'all.
(printable at the bottom)
We took the kids to their first MLB game. It was cold and rainy and they totally weren't feeling it. Best part? We were at a Cardinals game and the kids kept yelling "Go CUBS!". We were like right behind the Cards dugout where all the legit fans sit. LOL. At least we didn't actually put them in their CUBS shirts!
The girls painted pumpkins and managed to not make too much of a mess actually.
Paisley had such a great time playing soccer for the first time. Charlie got to help coach and Guthrie dressed like the team every single game. Thank goodness for friends with last years' shirts! :)
We got to fish at Aunt Lan's during a birthday party. G isn't so sure about those fish!
We visited a farm/pumpkin patch with Paisley's class and we also checked out a local farm that put on a big vendor event called "Pickin' at the Patch". The girls loved both!
We also survived another September. That month means alot around here. My Dad is in charge of our hometown Apple Festival and of course we're all committee members. It's a family affair. But, this year, Charlie and I put together and pulled off a brand new event (with the help of lots of amazing friends). It was called the Taste of Murphysboro and we were able to provide two scholarships to a couple of our hometown kids. It turned out better than expected even though it was an insane amount of work. Being able to give back and work in our own little town feels so good. If you're not somehow involved in making your hometown a better place, I sincerely challenge you to get involved. It will make your heart happy. I promise.
Well, there it is. Life lately at the Eisert Farm and a free printable.
You know lately I've been trying to take more pictures. I know some people think that today's society is too addicted to their phones and tablets. But I can't imagine not having all of these photo's. I don't carry around my big ol' fancy camera in my purse and one day....I'll look back and be so, so thankful for these captured memories because y'all, we can't slow down time. And it's flying by.
I saw this post on Facebook today and I think it fits perfectly here.
And, now. The October Printable. Because I want you to be overly prepared come next October... You're welcome. ;)
