Ahh, the routines, energy and commotion as we welcome September back.  After a lounging, non-structured summer in our house, we have to gear up and get back into the routine of school and activities again. But not before we enjoy the last tokens of summer.  Even though the weather might not be as hot as in the summer (although some Autumns have been known to be quite hot) there is still a quiet loveliness that comes with wearing scarves, drinking warm apple cider and the gorgeous fall colours.  Our usual outings in fall include the Edmonton Corn Maze and Prairie Gardens on Thanksgiving.  Of course all of this is mixed in with 3 kids now in school full time and their activities.

Welcome September 3

One of our absolutely favourite things to do in the fall is to make a big pile of leaves and to play in them.  Our trees in our backyard always provide plenty to enjoy.

As a busy mom sometimes we must remember to get in on the play with our children.  It is not all about us observing, documenting and keeping the house.  This is especially a message I continually have to tell myself. So go ahead and throw some leaves yourself.  It is wonderfully freeing and you will feel like a kid again.

What do you love most about the fall season?  What do you look forward to the most?  My favourites are hot coco, the gorgeous fall colours, thanksgiving celebrations, pumpkin patch and corn maze fun.

To keep us all inspired this fall season I have created a Fall Bucket List Subway Art Printable.  Feel free to download and decorate your house as well.  Just click the link below.
