One of my absolute favorite things about having kids is celebrating the changing seasons with them. With all of the noise and mess and daily duties, small things like sitting next to them with a new book from the library as their eyes grow big with excitement means so, so much.
Jack has been loving these books lately, and they’re getting us excited for apple picking, pumpkin carving, leaf-pile jumping, bonfires and hayrides at Marmee and Pops’ house.
