What's Happening Now? Fall is here!!
Fall is here and for many kids it is there favorite time of the year! In fall, children get a first glimpse of the dramatic changes that occur in the changing seasons. The most notable change is how the leaves transform from green to bright orange, yellow, and crimson reds. Another is the drop in temperature which takes us from T-shirts and shorts to light jackets, long pants and sometimes sweaters. Even the smell in the air changes as the season shifts from warmth to the beginnings of cold wet weather.
Some of the greatest experiences of fall have to include those juicy pumpkins that can't be missed while passing pumpkin patches and decorated porches. Pots of yellow, purple, and orange mums fill the air, apples are at their ripest and hot chocolate and hot cider can be a family's all time favorite treats.
What are your favorite things about fall? We would love to hear from you!
