It’s been so long since I posted; things have been running so quickly by me that I can barely keep my head above water. During the week the girls and I have been trying to enjoy the many storytimes this place has to offer within walking distance and the (sometimes) crispy fall weather. I LOVE THE FALL, and this might surprise you New Yorkers, but I love the winter too. I missed the snow in Alabama! I’m not talking about the 4 inches that fell and locked up the highways for 19 weeks, either. There was something quieting and pleasantly isolating about steady winter snow; we’ll see if it is like I remember. People here say the winter is brutal – seriously, more than one person has told us that exact phrase – but I don’t think they mean NY lake effect brutal.
I have SO many pictures backed up that I think we’re just going to have to forget those. Here are a couple of Hazel and I having fun talking about fall leaves. I like to throw a little science at her on our daily walks, so we’re talking about decay, leaves, coniferous trees, and evergreens. Total fun.
