Our leaves are past their prime, but I still find beauty in the way they float and twirl in the wind on their way to the ground.
I always find comfort in these cloudy, rainy, cozy days.
Of course, the sunny, cool autumn days are lovely too...
Perfect for twirling in a new Halloween skirt before mass. : )
In the schoolroom, we spent another week learning more about leaves.
We went on a leaf walk, collected some beautiful leaves, and used them to make prints with colorful crayons. We did some fun experiments with our leaves too.
And we attended the wedding of a lovely young woman with my mom last weekend. It was beautiful and so much fun!
Well, that will do it for this one.!
So...don't let this fun and cozy time of year pass you by.
Even if you aren't into the creepy, scary, gory part of this holiday, you can still have some fun!
You can carve a cute jack-o-lantern, watch a fun Halloween movie...It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Halloweentown, Twitches, and Sesame Street's A Magical Halloween Adventure are some of our favorites...bake some cupcakes or slice up some apples with caramel dip, ride around and look at the Halloween decorations with a silly Halloween CD on in the car, or just read some fun Halloween books.
This time of year seems to be here and gone so quickly, partly because we know that right behind it comes Thanksgiving and Christmas. So enjoy, my friends. Enjoy and embrace the magic that is fall and Halloween before it disappears. : )
