Thoughtful Child and Creative Child were back in town for a brief, bonus visit from places west this past week. This was about as GOOD, RANDOM, and FUN as you can get. They were starved for fall in the first place as they live out in CA. So, when they got out of the van after Mass on Sunday and landed in a pile of leaves by the curb, and heard that familiar crunch underfoot and smelled that distinctive fall leaf smell, well....they just broke loose with enthusiasm...as you can see, they are the shy and retiring sort.
Oh, so good to have these boys all together again for one brief shining moment on a perfect Autumn Sunday.
The Patriach is quizzical......what is all this craziness? Don't let that look fool you! The apples don't fall far from the Patriachal tree, so to speak.
