As the temperature is starting to decline from the balmy summer that we had, for me and the family it's the perfect time for some evening walks in the country. With younger children it is not always easy to carry out long walks in such high temperatures like we had this summer, carrying the water, snacks and stuffed animals needed to accompany the journey is like having another child onboard! So as we get ready to embrace all the Fall has to offer, I like to take this opportunity to explore the great outdoors.

Today marks the first day of fall and so we wanted to use this as an excuse to explore the outdoors. The change of seasons are always a good time to get outside, as there is so much to observe and learn, and for all of us to discuss. Why do the trees lose their leaves? How do trees grow? Which animals hybernate and why? The opportunity to learn how my children see the world, and the ability to point out new ideas or concepts to them makes me a very happy mummy.


One of my favourite memories as a kid was looking at animal footprints that had been left in the mud and dirt. I had a book of footprints that would tell me which animal the footprint belonged to. I took this everywhere when we were up north in cottage country. I found a similar book the other day in my travels and picked it up to show the kids. They weren't immediately interested, but once we took it out with us around our neighbourhood, they were all trying to find a unique footprint. We had a ton of fun! The amount of ideas that came from this were fascinating and eye-opening for me. My kids have an innate love for nature and their understanding of it is pretty high considering the amount of technology kids are now exposed to.

Our walk was so inspiring and rejuvenating that it reminded me how important these expereinces are for all of us. Not only did it give me the chance to find out more about my children's understanding of their surroundings, but I was also inspired to do this more often and use them to make each walk a way to draw on our interests and inspire us. Next time, I want to use the walk to inspire story ideas!!

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

Lovely picture Sarah, and what a nice blog today to write about.
Fall is a lot of fun for our family as well. We live on an acreage and are always going for family walks with our adult kids and grandchildren. It's time well spent with them and nature that ground us and give us it seems more "energy". Well that's what my 5 year old grandson, Liam always says. Lol Have a great fall season.
