Fall Fun 2015

I realized that, while I always make a long list of activities for summer, I never really make one for fall.  And fall is one of my top favorite seasons!

Since it's so hot here right now, abnormally so, I can't help but think of fall.

So here is a list of ideas.  It can't be as long as the summer list, mainly because of school, but it's delightful.  Even if we don't get to most of them.

It's very idiosyncratic, with trips and outings we've already specially planned for this fall . . . .
  1. Applepalooza (our family fall open house, with apple desserts)
  2. Apple picking

  1. How about a prewinter check up for your cars, they have feelings too. Batteries good, tyres ready for snow, wiper blades new, spare light bulbs ready.
