Happy fall Y’all!!! Sidebar: I don’t have a sweet Texas accent and “y’all” doesn’t sound quite right coming out of my mouth, but it sounds just right typing it, so thank you all (y’all) for enduring the phrase from me 😉 Now back to your regularly scheduled activity.

Who’s ready for some great fall fun with your preschoolers?!? (insert my enthusiastic hand raised here!) I am SO done with the 100+ degree temps and want to start doing some nice, cool activities with my kids. Bring on the sweaters and cool breezes, please! Just because it is getting cooler does not mean you stop enjoying the great outdoors, even if it is just in your own back garden, there is still a lot of fun to be had. For instance, if your children need to let off some of that pent-up activity steam that can run them all over the house, you may want to look into playsets outdoor equipment for them to have hours of fun on, or you could set them off on a nature trail around your garden to see what they can find. It may be getting cooler but the outside still has a lot to offer.
