There’s something about the leaves turning different shades of orange and drying on the floor to be ran through that gets your heart racing! Although the wind blows the leaves off the trees a little too quickly, there is still fun to be had, in the garden, at the park and even the beach is one of the best places to go in autumn, yes it’s almost that time of year, the air gets crisper after a HOT HOT HOT summer, and it’s time to start thinking ahead to the start of school and the beginning of the autumn term…with Halloween to come-YES! That’s before Christmas- we will definitely be doing some form of Halloween themed something, possibly a gathering with friends as the Little Ones love Halloween and so do us adults.
