Today is the first day of school for most kids in our area, so for me I consider summer over! Which gets me really pumped for FALL! I thought I’d make a top 10 list for all the reasons I love it!
I can appreciate football on TV for about three months and then I want to take the remote and hide it from Ryan until the super bowl is over.😳 I can only love it for so long. But now that I am obsessively reading not just my Newbery Books but also books from NetGalley I probably won’t mind at all.
I don’t have to commute to work, so I actually welcome the foggy weather that sets in here in October and frosty spiderwebs!
Pumpkin Spice Latte’s
I don’t actually drink these latte’s but I know people get so fired up for them. I will drink coffee with cream in the morning and occasionally have iced coffee with cream in the afternoon. No pumpkin spice latte for me.
I love the costumes, the trips to the farm and all the excitement that surrounds Halloween, even though I have no clue why we celebrate it..
This may seem like a strange one… I grew up going to this farm near our home and every year that I can remember I have been going back with my own children. I love crisp apples fresh from the orchard. I love applesauce and pie but nobody here really eats it but me so I haven’t made it for a few years. Ryan always says he has FOMOF(fear of missing out on football)when we go… 🙄
Visits to the farm
Hay rides, nuts, cider, corn mazes… I love all of these things when we go to the farm. As I make this list I am actually getting even more excited for this upcoming trip.
Back to school
If you watched thirteen children all summer long, you just LOVE back to school time! Ryan and I run our home-based preschool and in summer months we take on older siblings. As much as we love them all, we are super eager to get back to our more organized preschool curriculum.
We have had more days over 90′ here, than is normal for our summers. It increases the risk for wildfires and makes the air quality just awful when it just sits in the valley. We need a few blustery days to freshen up the valley air.
Rain! I miss the rain!
We have not had any measurable rain since sometime in the beginning of June. So I am ready for a few rainy days where we sit inside and read and play games. I miss the sound and even the smell of it.
Candles burning or sitting by the fire. (or Campfire)
We don’t have a fireplace but I do enjoy the flicker of a candle in the fall and winter months, not too mention the smell of a yummy scent..
Is it the end of summer where you are? What do you love about fall? Thanks for stopping by friends..💗
