We began our new school year in August so that we could play hooky during the glorious month of October. It is hard to believe that we only have a week and a half until our break begins!
In the meantime, we are enjoying the wonderful autumnal weather we've been having here. I broke out my trusty corduroy skirt and brogues for the first time today. Autumn dressing is, by far, my favorite season for clothing. It is nice to already have everything I need to swing right into cooler weather. Of course, the same cannot be said for the little weeds that we call children. It's just about time to go up into the attic to see what we have and figure out what we'll need for the colder months.
The children and I are excitedly looking forward to a trip to the apple orchard on Saturday. One of our favorite ways to mark change of seasons is to venture to different farms and orchards to pick fruits. Though our favorite apple orchard is quite is a hike, we always have a lovely time and are so glad that we went.
