I had no idea today is officially the first day of fall. But it is! Welcome to the best season!
Puck and I read some "fall-ish" books. Poppleton in Fall is a goodie and I love Cynthia Rylant. Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night is one that speaks to kids and the mama alike. And then we threw in Where the Wild Things Are for good measure. A book that fits any season, don't you think? I'm a sucker for children's books with great illustration and witty verse.
We then decided to head out on a fall walk. I had deemed today the day to clean the oven, so it was doubly good to get out of the house to avoid a possible smoke/stink induced headache.
It was just 9:00am, so still a bit chilly when we started.
We found a worm.
This is one of the only truly orange leaves I've seen in our area. Puck noticed that it matched his jacket. Boys in orange jackets--love!
Are the leaves changing where you live? I know these photos make it look like we're swimming in fall colors, but really we're not yet. There are just a handful of trees changing so far.
The reminders that our fair weather is short-lived are everywhere.
