It took me awhile, but I'm finally excited that fall is here. It did take some time letting go of summer, but there is something about the prospect of Halloween, changing leaves, pumpkin patch visits and apple picking that makes me feel like a kid all over again...We're gearing up for our annual apple picking excursion this weekend and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm also planning on dusting off my fall decorations (late of course) and adding some spice to my house. Next project is to find Halloween costumes for my troop. My first request? An Orange Blossom costume, size 4T. Then we've got Giggles' school field trip to the Pumpkin Festival. Finish off the month with homemade apple pies and the Florida vs Georgia game and we'll be more than ready to take on the winter holiday season.
