I don't think I'll ever be that person that welcomes the colder seasons of the year with open arms. I'm a summer girl and I could quite easily name one hundred reasons as to why Summer is the season for me. Mostly I love being able to spend so much time outside exploring new places and especially so as a Mum. Staying indoors with young children all day because it's too cold to go outside is generally not that much fun.
But whilst Autumn does mean the start of colder weather and darker evenings, it isn't quite the end of days out exploring. In fact with nature changing so much there's probably more to look at and see this time of year. I just bought Ethan a sticker activity book which is called Autumn Nature Trail and is from The Gruffalo brand. It hasn't arrived yet, but it looks great. It has different signs of Autumn to spot in it, things to collect, Autumn colours to find and pages to write about our Autumn days out. So I'm quite looking forward to doing that with him.
