We’ve spent the last 2 weeks soaking up the beauty of fall in Massachusetts. Fall is my favourite season and the leaves have been so colorful here this year! I’m in awe of the colours God painted in nature! It’s been many years since I’ve seen a fall this beautiful. Last time we lived here for one year it wasn’t nearly as vibrant. Josh argues I’ve never seen one this beautiful thinking it couldn’t be as pretty in NJ. The kids certainly haven’t seen a fall like this and we’ve all been enjoying it.
We raked some leaves, but I know more raking is in our future.
We went apple picking. Unfortunately we picked the one orchard that had a bad season and ended up only getting “drops” (apples on the ground). It was still a beautiful day and the kids love any time they can get with their cousins. I managed to turn the drops into a pretty yummy apple pie and apple crisp too.
The kids also painted. Last time we lived in MA we didn’t have any decorations for our home as they were all in storage . I had the kids paint white canvases to make our apartment a little more homey. I decided to have them paint another one for this apartment and they both had a lot of fun doing it. Art is their favourite special at school.
