I feel like the start of each season has so many opportunities for new beginnings. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors of the trees, family traditions like apple picking, cooking soups and stews, and the feeling of being drawn back into the house and slowing down. In summer there are so many wonderful things that are going on outside like going to the beach that towards the end I just want to stop, make a fire, and have a cup of tea. Before summer ended we needed to have a little family getaway. We took the kids to Aquatopia waterpark in the Poconos. It was so nice to just be all together and having fun. We plan to return sometime this winter to go snow tubing. On the knitting front, I received my next Miss Babs Knitting Tour package in the mail at the end of last week. The theme is glamping and the yarn is a gorgeous green. We have also been getting ready for school. My daughter started 6th grade last week and my son started 8th grade yesterday. It’s so incredible to see how much they’ve grown and what wonderful people they are turning into. It makes this mama proud.
