After church, it was just too beautiful to stay inside. In a rare bit of home maintenance motivation, I went out and cleaned the leaves out of the gutters and trimmed some of the trees that were rubbing up against the house. Maddie decided to show me that she has no fear of heights by scrambling all the way up our tallest tree. Nate and I lamented end of his football season by throwing the ball around for a while. It was a beautiful day to hang in the backyard enjoy the sun and hang out as a family.... And then watch football while grilling out - chicken drumsticks on the grill!
