Fall

It has been hard to believe it is really October.  We were still wearing shorts and experiencing record high daytime temperatures.

Still, the mornings and evening were becoming very cool and the sun was setting early. The leaves were turning colors and beginning to fall to the ground.

I took the preschoolers on a walk to collect some leaves.  When we came back we made some leave pictures;

I don’t think they were trying to make anything in particular with their leaves – it’s all about the process not the product.

Some of the children put a great deal of effort into leaf selection – being very particular about leaf shape and color and making sure there were no defects.  Others were more interested in production speed and the quantity of leaves they could attach to a piece of paper.

Such a simple activity.  Enjoying the season and all it has to offer.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
