Fall means many things in the Midwest. It is a time when the trees begin to change colors, the weather becomes much cooler than in the summer, the skies are often clear and beautifully blue, and many farms open up their land for people to come apple pick and pumpkin pick. We had an opportunity to visit a local farm on Saturday to fill a big with fresh apples and to pick out some pumpkins to carve into Jack-o-Lanterns.
Today, we are enjoying the delicious apples at school, and tomorrow we will have a pumpkin carving contest to see who can make the best Halloween Jack-o-Lantern. We can't wait to see how they turn out!
