Fall took its time coming here in Wisconsin, the weather has been volleying between 75+ to 50 degrees from one day to the next. Like a spinning wheel never knowing what number it is going to stop on. Today however, it not only felt like fall, but it looked it. As Logan and I drove to school we saw all the gorgeous reds, oranges, yellows, and browns spread out across the park like a blanket.

Logan pointed out the different colored trees as we drove down the street. I watched him as he eyes darted around looking for all the colors, spying a flock of geese flying south, his bright blue eyes taking in everything around him. He even sniffed the air and said, “Momma it smells like grass”.

The air was filled with that autumn crispness with a wind that blew the dry leaves across the pavement, creating a wind chime of rustling and crinkling sounds.

I love this time of year from the rich colors to the briskness in the air.

Have you celebrated the changing of the season with your family?

Here are some ideas of how to celebrate fall as a family:

  • Before it turns to cold, take a walk. Take in the scenery around you and share it with your loved ones.
  • While you are out for your walk collect some fall leaves that you and your kids can turn into a fall collage. Have a contest and see who can find the most different colored leaves.
  • Rake up leaves and then jump in the piles! Have fun!!

Share all the wonders of the new season together as a family, it will be time you will cherish. And remember it is the simple pleasures in life that can make you realize how blessed you are.
