We've been spending a lot of time in the car lately, so most of these are moments from Mom's Taxi:

Josh: "Alright Mom, Round Two!" These are the words he shouts as we drop off Owen & Ellie at the sitter, and then head back to the van on our way to his school. (secretly, I say "round three" as I head on my way to school after dropping him off.)

Ellie: "Mom! We IN a cloud!" (a foggy morning sparks a science lesson on the way to school one day this week)

Owen: In his rear-facing car seat he's discovered that he can strain his little neck far enough to see me in the front seat. It's too cute to look back and see him peering over the edge of his seat. I wonder what he's thinking...probably "why are you over there and not back here having fun with me?"

The Hubs: Our Sunday morning rides are amazing quiet as the kids color and listen to music on the way to church. We've had some great conversations lately. Not to mention I get to eyeball him in his handsome church clothes without him noticing...

Me: I'm in love with Fall. I find myself purposefully standing at the back screen door watching the clouds, feeling the cool breeze mixed with warm sun. I've been peering at the leaves watching just the tips begin to change. I've loved having the windows open in the house and in the car, getting a little "air in our hair" as we've now dubbed it. I know winter is coming...but for now I'll enjoy my favorite season.

I love these little peeks into your life! Ohhhh, I remember both Jack and Max peering at me from their rear facing seats! I always wondered what they were thinking, too! :)

I love your moments! Ah...the rear facing car seat - D has a mirror so we can smile at each other. :)

I love when you write these moments, Kris. I know you're very busy, but I can see that you take time to count your blessings and appreciate the beauty around you... your fam. You're a wise chica.
