The aliens have called him to the mother ship
So one beautiful fall morning Mr. Gill and I took a little visit to the 100 Acres. It's a new outside art/park area from the IMA. I had been stressing out about life because, well-because sometimes I don't trust that God is good and He's got our backs. Which, by the way-He's ALWAYS had our backs.....I could tell you like a million different ways just last week He's been amazing and provider. I just forget sometimes. 
Anyway-I had been stressing out and so we took the morning off and slept in, got coffee and the most amazing pumpkiny iced thing ever! 
So we wandered through the museum/park and enjoyed the sunshine.

Standing on the knee cap and pointing at my knee cap....get it?
It was nice to connect outside too. I think Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. All the going back to school (I LOVED SCHOOL), and new friends, new adventures, football games and bonfires and chili....and leaves. It is like the trees decide its time to put on the last show. 
He's being EATEN!!
So one last thing before I get to cleaning my jewelry (I'm a dork and using my night off to watch tv on the computer and clean my jewelry and jewelry box that hasn't been cleaned in like....3 years. Don't judge). 
He will blow your mind. I promise! Ok, well-I guess I don't really know what will blow your mind-maybe your skull is a little  bit thicker than mine BUT this is amazing. 

oh and this one too :)

Marching Band

So this past weekend Michael and I went to the District Marching Band competition for some of the Indianapolis high school bands.
Avon High School Marching Band

I LOVED IT! Seriously I almost started crying it reminded me so much of all that was good and beautiful for me in high school.
Yes, I was a band geek. I wasn't any good-for real-I think I pretended to know what was going on most of the time, but I made beautiful friendships there that continue on today. AND I learned what is was like to work hard for a common goal-what teamwork and community looks like, if only in baby-form because we were after all only high schoolers.
It was freezing!

We would both tell you though, that Avon had the best show of the bands we saw....which we were late to the Class A competition because Michael was applying for a job in Boise-(YAY!!!) and, well we are late for almost everything in our lives that doesn't result in a direct punishment-like being fired.
Anyway-Avon was great. The show was a mix of Beethoven, Led Zeppelin and REM. It was fun and exciting and moving.
Michael specifically was really impressed by the xylophones, and how many there were-and told me if he was ever in marching band he would have played those. Um-right....have you ever seen Michael play on the drum kit? No way-he might be off the field for one could bet your bottom dollar he'd want to be in the line asap! He is -for those of you who know marching band-a line drummer through and through. He wouldn't want to miss out on all that loud sound making. 
lol. ok-maybe I'm going over the top a little bit here BUT we had fun talking about all that and watching the show. Next up for us-a month of a million weddings :)
ok-not a million but 5. That's more than I went to the last 2 years combined! We have good luck at weddings though-Michael and I met was at Richard and Feanne's wedding. Now-we're looking for jobs in Boise people-invite all your friends who leave west of the mississippi and introduce us! :) Just kidding. 

But really.....
