Last week, after I vocally mourned the end of summer for the fifty-seventh time, my son chimed in that he actually loves fall and is really excited that it’s finally here.
“We get to jump in the leaves at Nana’s house!” he cheered. “And pick out our Halloween costumes! And go to the fair!”
Leave it to our kids to find the silver linings, right? Gotta love those little optimists!
So before I complain again that the lazy days of summer have come to a close, I’m going to check myself and remember all the fun that autumn brings.
To help, I’m printing out this adorable calendar with 30 Days of Fall Activities.
One caveat: Generally I’m against so-called “bucket lists.” While well-intentioned, they make me feel so overwhelmed and pressured to do, do, do—and I generally don’t have a lot of extra time for more doing. No doubt you can relate!
So don’t view this calendar as an autumn bucket list; rather, consider it a list of ideas and options to help you and your family savor the simple pleasures of this season.
Here’s the list!
