All my life I wanted to be a mom.  Mothering dolls and stuffed animals was my favorite make believe game as a little girl.  It took me until I was 30 years old to finally become a mother and about 10 minutes of being one to realize that I had absolutely no idea what I was doing.

Any parent will tell you that being a parent is the hardest job ever. It’s slightly terrifying to think that you are in charge of molding these little people’s lives.

Ever wonder how your kids view you? These parents found out. (Grab the tissues!)

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the day to day routines of family life especially during the back to school season. Getting back in to a family routine can be hard – and a little boring!

To help our family get back to great this fall, I created a list of fun family oriented fall activities to do together this fall. It gives us all something to look forward to besides getting back in the school routine.

All the activities are listed below, but you can also download a printable calendar to hang on your fridge. Let the kids help choose the activities they want to do.

    I am looking forward to the leaves turning color and falling off the trees. Living in south Texas this is about the only thing we have that indicates it’s fall since we don’t cool off until late November or December.

    So much we love about Fall — apple picking, night hikes, leaf activities, choosing our pumpkin at the pumpkin patch and making pumpkin muffins 🙂
