Ah, school starting and fall approaching! Thanks for joining us at this busy time!

Lurkers and regulars, check in here with your name, location and favourite fall tradition. Are you looking forward to anything this month?

Hi, everyone! I'm Becca from Western Canada. I actually can't think of actual fall traditions in our family, but I look forward to Thanksgiving (in October here, probably earlier harvest times are the reason) and the boys' birthdays, plus all the tea I drink to keep warm. :smileywink:

This month we've already had Tim starting kindergarten and Ben will soon be registered for preschool (the same free weekly program Tim was in for the last school year). We also have our cat's first birthday on Sunday and I start an evening college course on the 25th! :smileyhappy:

Cindy here, in NY state.  I have a couple of favorite fall traditions.  The first one is the first day playing in the leaves.  We go out and play, and always come in and have our first cup of hot chocolate of the season, and a pumpkin cookie.  I also love Thanksgiving.  It changes from house to house every year.  This year we are going to my parent's.

This month is very big for us.  Julia started kindergarten, JJ starts preschool next week, Julia started gymnastics, and the kids started bible clubs at church.  Julia is a Daisy and JJ is a Rainbow.  I am a volunteer helper for Rainbows as well.  :smileyhappy:

Congrats on the anniversary! :smileyvery-happy: Happy birthdays to your son and grandson!

Do you bundle up well for the camping? We just have a tent, so it would be quite chilly!

I really have to remember your tradition when it's getting time to deal with leaves. We have two apple trees, so hopefully there are enough leaves to play in before the hot chocolate and cookies!
