In our neck of the woods, October has decided to start showing off. Autumn so far has been gorgeous and full of fun surprises, like this little visitor to my dad’s garden last weekend.
My middle two kids, ages 5 and 7, seem to be especially impressed by the changing of the seasons this year and their enthusiasm is a nice reminder to slow down and take some time to observe this time of year through a child’s eyes.
As a family we’ve had a lot of fun going on nature walks, driving in the country, baking leaf shaped cookies, and doing activities like picking pumpkins from Grandpa’s pumpkin patch and making Halloween decorations together.
Spring is magic, yes, but there’s something pretty special about Autumn, too. If only all transitions could be as beautiful and smooth, right? There’s a lot to learn from the way the natural world puts itself to bed this time of year.
Thanks to Little Passports, one of the Autumn activities we’re putting on our list is to try Hot Apple Cider. The folks at Little Passports sent this recipe to us and gave me permission to share it with all of you. I think it sounds perfect for a cozy Autumn afternoon.
