Woodlawn

My wife and I took our kids to see this movie this weekend. It was a big hit with the whole crew.

The IMDB description reads:

A gifted high school football player must learn to embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field.

It’s more than that, though. A good story, terrific message, and time well spent.

I’d encourage you to check out this movie. Our kids loved it, my mother-in-law and father-in-law loved it, and my wife and I did, too. It’s a great movie for the whole family!

Fall Festivities

Hayride

I love fall.

Just putting that out there 🙂

I have always enjoyed this time of year. There’s just something about it that no other season has. A certain feeling, the perfectly crisp air, I don’t know. But it’s fall and it’s awesome.

The activities associated with fall have something to do with my affection for this particular season. During this past week or so I’ve visited an apple orchard, gone for a hike, watched a high school football game, and enjoyed apple cider. Yes, you can experience some of those at other times of the year but during the fall they are exponentially better – at least as far as I’m concerned.

Like I said earlier, there’s just something about it.

Fall is also my favorite season to take pictures. The one you see here is from a little place called Ackerman Farms in Morton, Illinois. Nice folks there.

I realize by looking at it that going on a hayride would be a perfect addition to my fall activity list. Haven’t done that in a long time.

What about you? What are some of your favorite fall activities? I’d love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below.

Have a great day!
