I love this quote about fall:
Summer is already better, but the best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable and serious, it glows moderately and not frivolously… It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable…
Fall is one of the best times of the year and here are some of our reasons why:
Leaves. There are so many things to do with the leaves. The kids love raking them into piles and jumping in them or making a huge pile at the bottom of the slide and sliding into them.
The girls and I went on a leaf treasure hunt the other day. I gave each one of them a bucket and scissors and we cut leaves off of trees we thought were cool. They had so much fun picking out cool leaves and putting them in their buckets. We then dried them in some newspaper and then I covered them in ModgePodge. I haven’t quite decided what we are going to do with them yet but I am sure it will be in another blog post (which is now availble, check out our awesome wreath we made). The leaves are so beautiful!
Pumpkins. We love pumpkins at our house. We planted our own patch in the spring and have about eight pumpkins to play with. Fall is when we get to enjoy them! The kids will have fun decorating them by painting and carving and I have had fun using them in our house as fall decor.
Mood. There is something about the mood at our house in the fall. Everything seems a little more cool and calm. That is why I love that quote above so much. The kids have fun going outside and don’t get as cranky outside. Probably because of the cooler temperature.
Clothing. Sweater weather or long sleeve shirts and pants is the best! I also love that the kids where tie-up shoes or tennis shoes in the fall which means they keep them on their feet outside not like sandals in the summer.
I know there are several reasons people love Fall, those are some of the reasons we love this season so much as our house. Feel free to comment on why you love Fall!
