Last Friday marked the 1st day of Fall! Crazy to think Fall is here! I love Fall, but here in South Florida we don’t get much of Fall. Actually our winter’s are more like our Fall. The funniest thing is the girls learned about Fall at school last week. They came home last Thursday full of knowledge about Fall and all the things that Fall is “supposed” to bring….leaves change color, no sunshine (not sure about that one), leaves falling, piles of leaves to jump in, they get to wear boots, and Halloween. I laughed out loud as they explained all this to me in a very excited manner. I actually didn’t even know Friday was the 1st day of Fall until they came home with much excitement to tell me. But when Friday came, they didn’t understand why the sun was still out and the leaves weren’t changing colors and falling. They also didn’t understand why they couldn’t wear their boots to school. Having to explain that in Florida we don’t get Fall like other parts of the USA was a little hard. I was able to convince them that the sun shining was good because it makes us smile. They agreed the sun was necessary but the boots took a little more persuading. I tried to tell them that 90 degree weather wouldn’t be too much fun to wear boots in. They ended up scoring a pair of pink boots when the temperatures do drop though…thanks to their daddy.
As I was on Pinterest recently I came across the above checklist….and loved it! Some of the things will be hard to do in South Florida but I’m still going to use it as my checklist. What’s on your checklist for fall?
