5 Reasons Why I Can’t Wait For It To Be Fall – A Season of Change

5 Reasons Why I Can't Wait For It To Be Fall A Season of ChangeAre you tired of the summer heat?  I know that I am, in fact, I am looking forward to the cooler weather.  Summer officially ends on September 21, 2013 and fall begins on September 22,2013.  Fall is just a few days away and summer will be officially over in a few days!  Most of the kids are back in school and they are busy learning new things, football season is in full swing, and the holidays are getting closer.

I decided a few days ago that I wanted to share with you a few things that I enjoy about fall.  My son has been begging me to go outside and play.  I want to take him outside but I am not a huge fan of sitting outside in the heat so I am ready for some cooler weather.  The heat doesn’t seem to bother him as much and he would play outside for hours at a time if I let him.

Cooler Temperatures

As the leaves begin turning different shades of color, we are reminded that fall is on it’s way and fall generally brings with it cooler temperatures depending on where you live.  In Texas, we have a few more weeks of hot weather before it gets cooler.  I love it when it is cool enough outside so that I am able to open the windows and let in a nice breeze.  Of course, since I have moved back to Texas I don’t open my windows very often due to my allergies but I do enjoy spending more time outdoors with my family.  I am hoping that it cools off over the next few weeks so that me and my youngest can spend some time outside playing.


I am looking forward to watching my son go trick or treating again this year.  He has grown so much since this time last year.  I haven’t decided on a  Halloween Costume that I want to get him yet but I have some time to figure it out.  I also enjoy seeing the other kids dressed up in their cute costumes. You can’t forget about all of Halloween candy either.  When my kids bring it home their candy bucket, I always raid their candy bucket and grab a few of my favorite items…opps I just told off on myself.  ;)

The Pretty Fall Colors

I love it when the trees start changing colors and displaying the pretty red, orange, and yellow tones.  Everything is still fairly green if it happened to survive the hot, dry summer Texas heat.  I hope to see the pretty colors of fall in the next few weeks.  I

Football Season

Football season is a very busy time in our household, my daughter is in marching band and it involves ton of band rehearsals and late nights trips to the school to pick her up from the games.  In a few years, I will miss the busyness and the all of the time that I get to spend with my daughter.  Of course, you can’t forget about professional football.  If you are an avid twitter user like me, you should check out the #nflgirlfriends chat channel.  It is a fun way to connect with a great group of women while we are cheering on our favorite football teams.

Holidays are Quickly Approaching

This year has gone by so quickly.  I am kinda excited that the holiday’s are quickly approaching but at the same time it feels like it is too soon.  Can you believe it that Thanksgiving is in 71 days and Christmas is in 98 days?  Yikes!  I love the holidays because I get to spend extra time with my family and extended family.  I am trying to decide if I am going to bring back Rascal (my elf of the shelf) again this year.  I had so much fun hiding him last year but by the time December 24th rolled around, I felt like I was running out of creative ideas.

I have enjoyed spending extra time with my older children over the summer and I am blessed to have had that opportunity.  Since, I have started homeschooling my toddler a few weeks ago, he has been begging me to go outside so that he could play.  I told him it was way too hot to go outside in play.  It made me realize that I was ready for some cooler weather so that we could spend some time outside.  I decided to share this post so that we can all be thankful that seasons change and we don’t have to deal with the constant heat or cold temperatures all year long.

Bible Verse From Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time for war and a time for peace.

Are you ready for fall?  Please share what you love about fall!
