Weekly Homework Assignment

It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the prompt: Your Fall favorites.

I love the fall - I always have! Even when I was a kid, having to go back to school, I loved it. I loved playing soccer. I loved the chilly nights ... able to see my breath in the mornings on my way to school. I loved the leaf piles that I would always jump in.

Now that I'm older, I love the fall for different reasons. Sure, I enjoy seeing the leaves change color, and eventually fall (although I'm not a big fan of raking the leaves).

I especially love the sports that overtake the fall - college and pro football, baseball playoffs, the start of the hockey season.

I love the holidays in the fall - I love Halloween, and dressing up for Halloween to this very day. I enjoy Thanksgiving - seeing and hanging out with family (and of course, watching football!).

I like wearing jeans - I've liked them as far back as I can remember ... probably because I wanted to be like The Fonz back in the day. Now, I just think they're comfortable. I like sweat pants too, and tend to lounge in them for weekends at a time.

Truth is, I probably like all the seasons for different reasons.

I like the beginning of Fall, but not so much the end. I'm crossing fingers taht this will be the first season my kids throw the football around.

Yes I have to say that jeans and hoodies are at the top of my "reasons i love fall" list. Bye bye hot summer sun!
