September is a wonderful month here in Idaho. It starts to cool down, so you can actually go outside without melting into a puddle. I like to do walks and a bit of yard clean up in September. And then, there is…
October! Since I watch kids for a living (I also pet sit, but that is almost the same as having kids), October brings a lot of opportunity for discussion about seasons. Even though I detest the leaves falling and the trees looking dead, I have to admit that the fall colors are stunning. We do a lot of crafts with the leaves as well. October brings Halloween! I don’t think I’ve met a kid yet that doesn’t like Halloween. Again, there are a ton of craft and art ideas for the kids. It makes my life a little easier since it’s very easy to come up with activities!
October brings my birthday, which used to be fun when I was young. Now, it is just a little scary! I turned 58 yesterday. We celebrated by making bacon cheese burgers at home and having cake! I clogged my arteries and upset my digestive system all in one day! Go me! Still, it is a treat and only indulge once in a great while.
Here is a picture of the witch in me. My face looks incredibly long. It even scares me!
Here is a picture of the kids I watch. Their mom posted it to Facebook yesterday with a birthday greeting! I thought it was sweet of her. Time for me to get ready for work. Have a good Saturday, all!
