The trees are starting to really turn bright, beautiful colors. They're starting to fall to the ground. The nights are cold and the days are cool and brisk, but the sun, still very warm. This past weekend, Mairead had a soccer game at 0900 - and it was chilly! It was probably the first day that truly felt like a fall day. We relaxed and enjoyed each other for the day and went out to a local clam chowder joint for a nice, warm bread bowl of clam chowder. Yum.
Fall is great for days like Sunday. The air feels so refreshing and there are so many cool things to do for kids! Our girls are getting to be such a great age to really start enjoying these activities! Fall does depress me, too...I mean, it's the gateway for winter, and soon, we'll be trapped inside more than I will like. My kids will watch more TV, I'll get chubby from baking too many cookies and I'll spend too much money from frequent shopping trips to the mall! Winter does excite me, too....I mean, we'll have two of our three girls on skis this year, and I can't wait to see that! So, here's to enjoying fall!
