an equinox celebration
we changed over the nature table from summer to fall. here's summer (this was taken before it was at it's most bountiful, but you get the idea).
fall pictures to come when there is more to see. it's always so fun to clear the table and watch it fill with new little treasures and delights from the outside world. it's a slow process and one that we savor.
then it was outside to light a fire and sing some "fall is here" songs while we collected some kindling.
we tried popping some corn, but it was only marginally successful. bb tried hard to make me feel better about it. "no, mommy, it's really yummy!"
and of course who can resist making s'mores when there is an outdoor fire in the midst!?
and now we can look forward to all the goodness of fall. the apple picking. the applesauce making. the lantern walk at bb's school. the sweaters we can unpack. the leaves we can jump in and harvest festivals we can go to. the pumpkins we can carve. we love it!
what are you looking forward to this fall? do you have any special family traditions?
