The Homeschool Village - Fall!

Pin It

I mentioned in my post yesterday that our biggest fall activity is actually pretending that it IS fall. :-/ As I'm typing this, the temperature is 84 degrees, and with the heat index, it feels like 95. Happy fall in Texas, y'all. Sigh.

So ... fall activities around here:
1) looking wistfully at long sleeved clothes and wishing there was a need for us to wear them.

2) giggling when stores put summer clothes on clearance, because we can wear them immediately and rack up the bargains.

3) feeling like I'm completely missing out when I see pics of children in fall leaves. Our yard is covered in pine needles, and as much as I'd love to toss the kids out there and snap some lovely pics, it just doesn't have quite the same feel to it. It's not so much fun for them either! :-P

4) going to the pumpkin patch, as evidenced by my pictures yesterday, which is nice and different.

5) dressing up and going to our church's Fall Festival. We'll be doing that Sunday night, and I'm looking forward to it, although I'm in the midst of a battle with the little one as to whether he will dress up as a fireman (my choice) or Optimus Prime (his choice.) We don't do a whole lot of Halloween here, but have really enjoyed going to the festival every year.

I read your post and think how different our climates are. Right now we have snow and you have pine

I love fall...we'll have to mail you a BIG Hefty bag of leaves so your kids can jump in them!! But the bargains on summer clothes that you can wear year round is pretty great!

There's definitely pros and cons both ways! I just wish fall would last longer here in the Pacific NW. It's like we switch from sun to rain instantly - and there's no reprieve for months. Soggy leaves, no matter how colorful, are no fun to play in...

I love your post. If you want some leaves...we can send you some, as well! We used to wonder what it would be like to live in the Midwest, where it begins snowing in November and doesn't stop until May....we moved there 3 years ago...and after 10 months, we moved back!!! Many blessings and thanks for linking up with the Homeschool Village
