in praise of fall
We spent the day at a local event celebrating fall recently. While the event was primarily to help raise money for a local nature conservation project, the kids enjoyed stomping through muddy fields and hills, fishing for catfish (to toss back), riding horses, and of course, using an over-sized sling shot to launch pumpkins into the pond. This is what I call a win-win scenario: quality family time + outdoors + pumpkin carving (something I rarely make time to do at home). It felt like a true tribute to my favorite season.
