Fall is here, full force.
Today we went to our weekly park playdate with our homeschool group. 5 moms sat around a picnic table and shivered. My friend Maureen kept playing with a lighter she found to warm her hands. I was tempted to pile pinecones in the BBQ grates and start a small fire to keep us warm.
The kids? The kids were fine. They played in the stream. They threw pinecones. They jumped in the leaves. They wrestled in the grass. Nikki even took off his shirt because he was hot. The only real indication of how cold it was, was how tired and hungry they were when they got home.
Starting this weekend the Holiday Season begins full-force. We have 3 Halloween parties this weekend and a birthday party. Next week we have 2 more. Then we have a boyscout camping trip. Then Thanksgiving. Then 2 birthdays, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years. Phew. I feel dizzy just thinking about it! I haven't even carved our pumpkin or put up Halloween decorations yet and already I need to order a turkey soon! Where did the fall go? How is it almost November?
