I love this time of year. It brings back such happy memories of when I was a child and when I had young children . For me when I was young in the family would pack a picnic lunch and we would drive to see the fall leaves and then go to our favorite orchard and get apples and apple cider. Also at this time of year my mom and her sister would get together and help each other clean house they called it fall cleaning.
When my children were old enough I carried on a few family traditions some got shelved because my ex didn't like to do a lot of things. my kids would rake the leaves into piles and jump into them. We would carve pumpkins. But the one thing I miss at this time of year is getting my kids ready for school. Watching them hurrying out to the bus and having my youngest coming back in telling me see doesn't feel good.
Would I ever want to go back to those days? No I am happy enjoying fall with a whole new generation of kids. I still enjoy my fall rides, getting apples but now it's my daughters and me.
