fall equinox

this year in science, we are learning about earth systems. we have been learning all about the tilt and rotation of the earth, the stars and solar systems, and all about how the earth changes seasons.  well, speaking of changing seasons... today, september 21, is the fall equinox. {at this part of the world, at least.}

fall is one of my favorite seasons! {along with spring, of course} it's the time of year where i finally get to wear scarves and boots, and bundle up in a fuzzy jacket. it's the time where the leaves are changing to red, yellow, brown, and orange. it's also the time of the year where i get to eat all my favorite foods like pumpkin pie. yumm! i also love to take pictures during the fall time because the leaves are just so pretty at this time of year! so vibrant and colorful. :)

being that i live in a desert, fall comes really late for us. the leaves are just barely starting to change, and the temperature is still in the high 80's. *sigh* but it was really windy today, which means that fall is definitely on it's way!

to prove that fall really is coming soon, here are a few pictures...

i like this one because it shows the leaf changing, and the fully red leaf in the background.

Um... YES! :) I can't wait to pull out the cute lil' boots. ;)

Would you mind looking into my ministry Project Unbound? I am working to raise $6,000 to fund 1,000 bibles to the persecuted Christians of India. To reach my goal I need donations and all the help I can get... $5, $20, $100... EVERY dollar helps me get closer and closer to my goal. Please check into it at my website... www.unboundbychrist.blogspot.com and DONATE.

Love, Makay
