Weather-wise, this fall has been my favorite in years. I always love September. 70-degree days make me want to soak up whatever sunshine I can before the cold weather comes. I love 60-degree weather, too, and temperatures in the 50’s aren’t bad. But when ideal fall weather only lasts a couple weeks, it’s hard to call it my favorite season. But this year, fall has been amazing! It’s November 16, and the temperature is expected to go up to 60 again today. At this time last year we were buried in snow.
This year we had two opportunities for the kids to choose pumpkins. One was at the conclusion of a train ride we took from Coopersville to Marne (and back), and the other was at Post Family Farm during a field trip with our homeschool group.
The kids also dressed up in costumes twice. On October 30 we went to Aaron’s work for a harvest party, and then on October 31 we briefly went trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. (What a cold and wet experience that was!) Funny how I mentioned the gorgeous fall weather this year but then posted pictures from the colder days. 🙂
Here are some pictures to share:
