This was Kolton's last year with daily visits to the pumpkin patch since he will be starting school next year. He did not take it for granted. He played strong all day, every day. Fortunately, Xiana had fall break and was able to spend a lot of time there as well. Although, I'm finding her older and older. The things that were magical to her in year's past have lost their allure. She's aging out of some of the activities instead choosing to sit with Emma on the grass and visit or go through the older corn maze. Growth is important and wonderful, but it is also bittersweet at times. The cliches are truer for me each year... if you blink, you'll miss it.
