Fall The Most Beautiful Time of the Year

I love fall. It’s a great time of year. I love all the beautiful colors of the leaves. I love the smells of a fire in the fireplace, pumpkin pie fresh from the oven, hot chocolate on the stove. The air is so crisp in the morning. I love the sound of the leaves as they rustle in the wind. And the sounds of children laughing as the jump in piles of freshly raked leaves. Or the sound of that crackling fire. I think fall is my favorite time of year.

The days are getting shorter and shorter. We spend a lot more time with the lights on. It’s time to put the garden to rest for the year. It’s time to finish up all those projects you’ve been working on outside. Now you can get out the knitting and start working on warm hats and mittens. Now we can start spending more time with the books improving reading fluency.

There’s really only one thing that I don’t like about fall. It means that winter is right around the corner. I can totally do without the snow and ice and bitter cold. What’s your favorite thing about the fall?
