The actually falling of leaves occurred closer to T'giving this year. The kids favorite fall activity of all is jumping in a big pile of leaves. It's all they talk about from the second that very first leaf drops. And they want to do it over and over. And it seems that Gus loves it too. He's always right in the middle of the pile.
But our favorite fall activity....the Thankful pumpkin. We use one of our small pumpkins and write on it all November long. Most days the kids are eager to participate. This might be *my* fave family thing we do.
