Try to Remember the Kind of September.........

I love the song Try to Remember from the Fantasticks. I think it is the first popular song I ever truly fell in love with and tried to sing on my own.  I was 9 when it came out and my parents had it on a recording by Ed Ames, one of my very favorite singers. This September has been so perfect and the words of that song have often come to mind...   (Here are a few lines from the song)

Try to remember the kind of September....

When life was slow and oh, so mellow. 

Try to Remember the kind of September .....
 When Grass was Green and Grain was Yellow.
 Try to remember when life was so tender....
..... That no one wept except the willow....
 Try to remember when life was so tender ....
 ...That dreams were kept beside your pillow....
 Try to remember when life was so tender ...
 That love was an ember about to billow......
 Try to remember and if you remember.,..
 Then Follow -
Follow, Follow.

I finished Cody's wedding quilt. I put 194,164 stitches in this quilt and it took me about 15 hours to quilt. I babysat and played with my grand-babies. Jesse and Tyree liked to visit us and play with us on Sundays, Hillary and Gabriel came up for the week and we had a wonderful time together. Cody started back at BYU-I on Sept. 16th. I will post more pictures in a few days and a couple of cute videos.
