September: the beginning of our birthday season! I’m first, then Anna this month. Then each child turns older in succession, according to birth. We didn’t plan it that way, but for a mother who adores organization, that was a happy bonus! 😂
We love September for many reasons. No.1: Let the fall cooking begin!
We love being outside to eat on the deck. We love to see the leaves change. We love to smell that crisp “fall smell.” We love the raindrops on the leaves. We love that it gets darker at night, and so you feel more like snuggling in Mom and Dad’s chair with a blanket (or better yet, with a parent at your side) to read a good book. We love to drink hot apple cider or bite into a crisp apple. We love our school’s fall festival! We love the general women’s meeting that all the girls and mom (and grandma!) watch together. We love that the log Satuday hours of summer work outside dwindles to an end. We love finally feeling like we are “in the swing of things” with the new fall schedule. We love getting to hear about each other’s day around the dinner table. This year (2017) we enjoyed getting to watch BYU football games together!
The Storytelling Festival is a reason to rejoice! Being fans of all things stories, we love to be there when we can.
September’s decor colors are red, yellow and blue, because it’s the first month school is back in full swing, and those are the primary colors. Favorite September reads include books about school and fall.
