Today I realized that even though it was still in the 90’s that Fall is finally here. We love the Fall in our house because Fall means that it is time for Football and our Arkansas Razorbacks. We watched their season opener today while lazing around the house. They did awesome and I can’t wait to see how they do this season with their new coach.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year because the weather starts cooling off, the kids go back to school, football and fair time. Hubs has started Lilly out right, she has had razorback shirts since her first season. She can call the hogs and will yell right along with her papa “go, go, go – Yeah!!!”, it’s so cute to watch.
Lilly started Pre-K this year so we are all settling into a new schedule. Lilly not only has to get ready for school, but she has to have her CF treatment before she goes too. So far she’s been a real trooper and the only problem is that they haven’t had another “muffin” party (afterschool care had a bday party with cupcakes on the first day) again and she’s upset about that.
The next thing we are looking forward to (besides our Razorback Football) is the Arkansas State Fair. We took Lilly last year for the first time and she had a blast. We found out early afternoon on opening day is the best time to go. Lilly can’t wait to go back and this year she should be tall enough to ride everything. I have so many happy memories growing up at the fair and the lights always just seemed so magical to me.
I almost forgot about Halloween – so see we have so much to look forward to over the next two-three months and before you know it, Christmas will be here too.
What is your favorite time of the year and what are some things you look forward to during that time of year?
