A Change of Season is Approaching…

Change of Seasons

I can feel a change in the weather, a new season is approaching and the changing leaves and crisp breezes of the fall are just around the corner.

What a wonderful summer we’ve had so far.  So many outdoor activities under the sun! Sometimes I wish we had the summer all year round.

This was our first summer with a little toddler running around and I found it was great to be able to go to places like Science Centers, Aquariums and Museums knowing that he was old enough to interact with the exhibits and get excited about what he was looking at, even naming the animals and objects.

This summer we got to see our son’s little personality come out even more than before and we discovered he loves to entertain us and he is a little joker at heart. Isn’t it wonderful when they get to that stage? Their personalities waiting to be discovered at every chance.

I used to think people were exaggerating when they said children grow up too fast but now I can see why they said it. It feels like it was yesterday when I held my little newborn in my arms and now I have an independent toddler telling me what he likes and what he doesn’t like on a daily basis. Way. Too. Fast!

For now we are hoping to continue to enjoy the last weeks of summer (is it really the end of August today?) and wait for the beautiful transformation that is the fall. One of my favorite seasons with all the gorgeous bursts of color.

Are you enjoying the summer so far, are you looking forward to the new season?

    Oh I know what you mean, it was my baby’s first birthday the other day and now I’m going back to work on Tuesday. Can’t say I’m looking forward to it and wish I was part time! Summer has been great but I always look forward to the fall colours!
    Enjoy!

    I feel the change of seasons too and like you, can’t believe it’s September!! Time surely does fly. You know, at first I think how much I love summer and I don’t want it to end, but by the time Autumn comes around I’m loving it. I LOVE this time of year in WI so much!

    September 3- I write in this date and my mind keeps asking: ‘Where did the summer go?; It was the most beautiful summer with birthdays, barbeques and visitors. It has been the warmest and driest summer on our Island in over forty years.
    I love the Fall, the colours, the fresh tree fruits, the smell of wood smoke in the air. Many homes have wood furnaces and /or wood stoves. It brings back to me my teen years -coming home on a fall evening with dusk falling and the smell of wood smoke. Such great memories. GGson, no .3, is waling and running around at 17 months and discovering new things every day,. He is immensely curious and loves the outside. It is so wonderful to see the world anew through such innocent eyes.-el03r

    What lovely photos, I’m afraid it will be quite a while here before we see some colour – snow forecast for the weekend!

    I’m still anxiously awaiting spring, our temperatures tend to at least warm up during the day now but with so much snow it’ll be quite a while before we see flowers here.
