The kids are totally stoked with the Halloween decorations adorning the front yard in our little rented home. It has been nearly a year since I broke my ankle. A whole year of living in this house. Another year of Batten Disease taking a stronger hold of my child. A year of Julie getting taller and more mature. A year of my boys fighting, getting better at video games and learning how to cook. I love this time of year. Its bittersweet but still my favorite.
