Here in Georgia the evening temperatures have finally reached into the fifties and the daytime temps have come down to the seventies. Could it be we'll have a Fall after all?
Well maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. It seems the real Oktoberfest ends the first weekend in October. So here we are, 1 October and the temperatures are starting to feel like Fall. For now, at least.
After Halloween what's your favorite October activity? As a a youngster one of mine was jumping in piles of leaves. The raking wasn't fun but the jumping in them when you had piled them to about half your height was the fun only a child can appreciate. It was also a great way to help break the leaves down.
When I lived in Texas I had the opportunity to introduce leaf pile jumping to the children of the neighborhood. I couldn't believe that not a one of them had ever had that experience. What kind of parent doesn't teach their children one of the joys of nature? And I can tell you, after the introduction, the kids loved it. I had to leave my rake out so they could re-rake the leaves into piles even when I wasn't there. And then to see them jumping into the piles their parents made as they raked their yards was rewarding. My contribution to there childhood memories.
So tell us, what's your favorite Fall activity? It can be a childhood favorite or something geared a little more for adults and everything in between. So, let us hear.
On with the games!!
