The end of October is here…how did that happen? How is Christmas just around the corner and Halloween happening as we speak. For me, upon our return from summer in America the days, weeks and months just fly past. September is the mark of school starting, October is the mark of Autumn beginning and Halloween costumes and parties, November brings us Thanksgiving and more celebrations and let’s not forget December and it’s festive Christmas cheer everywhere the entire month. These last few months of the year, blink by me like one big blur. When the new year hits, time seems to stop. The first few months seem to drag on and move at a snail’s pace. If only the time moved slower on the last few months of the year when there is so much to take in, so much to remember and so much to enjoy and the first of the year would blink by us. If only…
While the time is flying we are still trying to make every moment as a family count together. On weekends where we are all home and the weather is nice we are jumping in the car as much as possible for family adventures. The kids are only young once and the weather isn’t nice as often as we like so we take advantage of it. We have been to the beach a few times, we have been to pumpkin patches to pick our our pumpkins, and we have been to the corn maze for a treasure hunt. Let’s not forget the park every other day with our scooters to enjoy those beautiful falling leaves of Autumn. I love Autumn. It’s so pretty. There is something comforting in cozy sweaters, crisp air, and the colors the leaves bring to the park.

We may have had some parenting struggles earlier this month but we ended it happily back to normal in Spain with friends. We ended it with a half term of sunshine, swimming, fun and relaxation together. Each year, we head to Spain for the October half term and it’s just enough sunshine to store up for the winter time. One last boost of vitamin d, and playing outdoors without coats, hats and gloves. We hope November is kind to us with good weather and no tantrums.
