Autumn on my mind

Anybody else over the this hot summer weather?  Bring on fall y’all: pumpkins, apple picking, falling leaves and sweaters and jeans. We can’t wait for all of our favorite traditions!


I’m also desperate for some new structure and schedules. I really want to do some fun activities with the girls this Fall and have regular programs we attend each week. So far I have us signed up for Community Bible Study (CBS) but I am also considering dance or swim lessons for Eleanor and maybe Awanas. I might sign us up for Moms of Preschoolers this year too. I am needing some new mom groups to add to our social lives since so many of my friends’ kids are going to school or preschool this year.

I am also wishing it were time to start school with Eleanor. I think the kid is ready for kindergarten at only 3 1/2 years old! She asks to go to school all the time…probably because she hears the older boys and girls at boot camp talking. I keep resisting the idea of doing at home preschool or any structured curriculum but I think she would actually love it so maybe I will change my mind.

And can we just take a moment to remember what running in Fall weather feels like? I’m a little burned out of boot camps right now and have been slacking on my work outs this month. I keep wishing for cooler weather so I can start the day with a nice run. I don’t always love running but in the Fall it is my favorite!

I’m also anxious for all the consignment sales. Our community has so many great ones for kids and even one for women’s clothing. I just love shopping consignment for books and boutique dresses for the girls and sweaters and designer jeans for me!

What are you looking forward to this fall? I am really hoping we will squeeze in some hiking and maybe a camping trip as well as apple picking and a trip to the mountains this year.
