Seasons Change

It's time for another change of seasons! Today, September 22nd, is the first day of Fall/Autumn! Fall is such a beautiful season (most of the time). More often that not, Alabama usually does not get much of a Fall season. We usually go straight from summer weather into winter weather. When we do get a Fall season, it's usually not for more than a month or so, but is really beautiful when we do! The weather is so comfortable as well. Maybe this year we will be able to enjoy some Fall weather and scenery, since our August weather/summer weather was cut short! It has been raining here EVERY DAY for about the last 10 days or so.

So here is a little bit of history: Fall officially gets underway with the autumnal equinox, the date in September when hours of day and night are roughly equal. Of course, just because the calendar says it's the first day of fall doesn't necessarily mean that your state, city, etc., will experience fall temperatures--nor fall colors--on that date. There are many natural factors that influence the progression of the fall foliage season

Here is a great site for parents of younger children for fall activities, including coloring pages, mazes, puzzles, word scrambles, crosswords, quizzes, science and math challenges, and MUCH more!

I hope everyone enjoys their first day of Autumn!!!!
