crisp, warm and happy

The following is a rough draft of Abbott's (age 8) for a school assignment:

"At fall, leaves crackle and crunch under my feet. At Halloween, which is in fall, we tell spooky stories. I munch on warm, nice, hot, just-from-the-oven pie. I play with my Halloween cape. I put up scary, hairy decorations. My mom puts up a warm, crackling fire. I look at interesting Lego Christmas catalogs. I play piano in my warm comfy house. Leaves swirl in the wind. Fall is here. I drive to school in the cold, misty air. Fall is here. Tall trees creak in the wake of wind. I like fall. Fall is crisp, warm and happy."

I hope you had a weekend that was crisp, warm and happy. xoxo

Perhaps not as crisp as yours, Lecia, but nice just the same.
Your kitties have grown so much!

This year that we live in the countryside I'm 'introducing' fall to my son; he loves it, too.
Well done, Abbott!

"I look at interesting Lego Christmas catalogs."

I smiled at this - it could have been my son 12 years ago at the age of 8.

This is one of the happiest description of fall, I love it how he focuses on all the celebrating that comes with the season.
