Fall is such a great season. There's so many things you can do. You can do a lot of the same things during the summer. I love bonfires and toasting marshmallows. You can go to the pumpkin patch or on a hayride. Hayrides are always a lot of fun. You can also go on nature walks and see all the colors of the changing leaves. There's so much fun in fall. Don't forget about jumping in big piles of leaves and making a leaf angel or two. You can also go apple picking. Whatever you do make some great memories.


We are planning on taking them to the local pumpkin patch, the hayride, and corn maze (the non-scary one). We are hoping to do these this fall since their was rain every summer and many of our summer plans were axed.

We bake sugar cookies as well and cut them into fun shapes and characters with our variety of cookie cutters.

We will also roast marshmallows and hotdogs. My kids and nephews love doing this in the evening. We also do a movie night with pizza and popcorn. We've also talked about doing rootbeer or cherry coke floats, too. I like Summer but enjoy fall much more. It is cozy and comfortable. And all the fall colors put me in a happier mood.


As much as I hate saying goodbye to summer, I will admit that fall has a sort of magical feel to it. On that note, this is a good time to get klids to help you rake leaves! Of course, if they are like mine they are more efficient at checking the maximum jumpability of mounds of leaves. As you are raking (and/or jumping) have fun pullung out a few different shaped leaves to later look up to find out what type of tree the leaves came from. Also, you can save the leaves by decorating them with paint, glue and glitter or whatever you can think of and then laminate them!

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
