This week’s link up at The Homeschool Village is about fall spirit:
- How do you show your fall spirit?
- Is every corner of your house decorated in fall colors?
- Does your child have a costume they want to wear every day?
- Do you bake until pumpkin pie comes out of your ears?
Wow – is it really fall already? I mean, I know it is – and it’s almost over, but I’m not personally there yet. Our fall-themed study is still coming up – I hope to have it done by December!
Just as well – since all the fall picture books have been checked out of the library, and maybe they’ll be checked back in by then. And all the fall stuff will be on clearance in the stores. There really are some benefits to being half-a-season-behind.
So to answer the questions: no, we don’t have any decorations up - yet. Yes, my child wants to wear a costume every day – but that has nothing to do with fall. And I will gladly eat pumpkin pie until it comes out of my ears, but I’m not squeezing the baking thing into my schedule very well right now.
What seems to be in our tradition – getting taxes done by the Oct 15 extended deadline. That means DVD marathon for Miss Esmé.
I did try to make up for it by a trip to the pumpkin patch. And hopefully that will become a tradition.
Next year I’ll try to fit in Reformation Day activities.
And next year our fruit trees and vines should be bearing again, and we’ll protect our garden from the deer, so we’ll actually get to really celebrate harvest.
This year, the 1 hour we gain because of Daylight Savings Time will be my biggest cause for celebration. Seriously. Now to think of some activities to fill up that hour…
