September Summary

It is hard to believe that October is just around the corner.  The temperatures have been all over the board here.  Today I can feel fall coming once again.

Our September has been full as usual.  The kids are LOVING school which makes my heart sing. We have had a great few weeks.  I thought I would share some photos of what has been going on in the Morton household.

Let's start with Taylor Swift.  Way back in December of last year, our dear neighbors and I decided to have a girls night out at the Taylor Swift concert in September.  I didn't tell the girls about it until a week before and let's just say you might have heard the screams.  Our neighbors are like family to us.  We love them dearly and they have play a huge role in our children's lives.

Here we are before the concert.  Our neighbor's daughter is totally into fashion and set the girls up with new glittery cowboy hats and sparkley scarves.  They were, not so much.  

In St. Paul on our way to the concert.

My neighbors hate this picture so I am going to be in trouble for posting it but I LOVE it!  The concert was absolutely AMAZING.  She sounded awesome and her set and costume changes truly left me speechless.  It was SO FUN and I will never forget it.

Most of our time is spent playing in the cul de sac.

Friday nights are spent cheering for the Irish and they are off to a great start.  The kids have SO much fun at the games.  We are so lucky to be able to share this excitement together every Friday night.

A dear friend of ours from California just made the U of M soccer team.....GO GOPHERS!  She came out to spend the day with us last weekend and we had a blast.  The kids picked up some new soccer moves.

Homework time...

Off to school on their bikes...

I hope you have enjoyed September.  Fall will officially be here next week which doesn't seem real.  My favorite parts of fall would have to include back to school times, football, changing colors, blue jeans and candy corn.  What are your favorite parts of fall?


  1. Oh Jana where to begin as Fall is one of my favorites! I actually like all the seasons. Fall I love the colors-reds, golds and oranges, I love the smell of the leaves, and smoke from fire places and bon fires. I love the mums, football, pumpkins, candy corn and my most favorite dessert-pumpkin pie! I also love how everyone decorates in the fall.

  2. Cindy, we are on the same wavelength my your list!!! Happy Fall!

  3. The end of Deep South heat and humidity!!!! And, of course, the colors!
