morning walks and new boots

After Benjamin and Leo leave for school with daddy, we start our day off with a walk. I get everybody bundled up, since the mornings have become a bit cooler now. We go out the back kitchen door into our screened in porch. Joseph and Robby get settled into the double stroller, and Ruth opens the screen door for me. Then, we talk our morning walk to drop Ruth off at her little preschool. It's actually become one of my favorite parts of the day. We sing songs and pray as we walk together. It's a really sweet time to start the day off!

I took a few photos this morning of our walk. And I had to include my new boots, too! Today was the first day I got to wear them. And let me tell you, I absolutely love them!! They are so comfortable. And I feel pretty cute in them, too. :) (Thanks, Dad, for sending me the money to buy them. You are so good to me!)
