FALL FUN Activity List

Happy Fall!  When I told Arin last Friday that it was finally Fall, she was super giddy.  She loves the season changes.  As soon as I realized it was Fall, I started craving all the comfort foods of the season.  The only problem with this is that we are still experiencing hot, hot, hot weather.  It does not feel like Fall, at all.  This past week, I took the girls to the zoo and the weather was about 95 degrees that day.  Not exactly the type of cool weather that you typically associate with Fall.

But, we are still excited for the season change, so we will create Fall in our home.  Next week is Arin's last week of school before we take an extended break (probably 4-6 weeks).  We won't be spending our days with hours of structured activities like normal, but we will still be making time for some fun activities.  Tonight, I put together a list of activities that we'll do.  I wrote the list on leaf shaped papers, which the girls will be able to pick from each day.  Some activities they will be able to do by themselves (really great for right after the baby is born) and some will be things that we work on together (baking and such).
