September 27Peter and I before the Texans vs. Jaguars game (i.e., when there was still something to smile about). The Texans sure do make it hard to be a fan! We lost 31-24.

September 24I’m certain there’s a mathematical interpretation of this, but math was never my forte.

We had to stop by the grocery store this afternoon to pick up some Gala apples. Tomorrow is Johnny Appleseed day in kindergarten, and Jacob is supposed to bring his favorite apple. Outside the store, they have these huge concrete balls, presumably to keep cars from driving up on the sidewalk. Jacob decided to mount one. Boys.

September 23Today was the first full day of autumn. In keeping with my quarterly theme, I took a photo of the front of our house. Compared with spring and summer, it sure doesn’t look like fall has fallen here in Houston! But we were greeted with pleasantly cool temperatures in the lower 60s this morning, so at least it feels like we’re putting the long, dreadfully hot summer behind us.

September 22I spent Tuesday evening with members of the Junior League cookbook committee wrapping our sponsor gifts in advance of our VIP launch party for the cookbooks. Sponsors receive a copy of the cookbook and an embroidered apron. The book and the apron came out beautifully, and I think we did a pretty good wrapping job, too!
