Remember the series “Currently” I began in the earlier years of my blog? Something made me want to do a more current “Currently” as I couldn’t remember the last time I did one – February 10, 2017 guys. We are waaay overdue for one.
Saturday in the DMV area really felt like fall had arrived, didn’t it? The sky was a little cloudy and overcast (we had a light drizzle for a little bit, which added to the delightful temperature) and the weather was cool and crisp that you actually needed a light jacket and/or a long-sleeved shirt.
And by some struck of luck, that was the day I decided it would be fun for our family of four to go apple-picking at Hollin Farms! In addition to there be no better way to kick off the fall season (and get excited for pumpkin patches next month), both Ava and Luke have recently rekindled their love affair with red apples, so I figured they would like picking their own red apples.
With Ava starting virtual Kindergarten on Tuesday, I quickly realized that (like most people) with all the screen time she is doing for school, she needs something to play with to relieve energy and tension throughout the school day.
This month’s “things that make me happy” will be focused on our Labor Day weekend trip to Charlottesville. We decided to take a little family trip Friday to Sunday to signal the end of summer and beginning a new season and school year!
