The Homeschool Village - Fall Connection


This week at the Homeschool village is about Fall Spirit! How do you show your fall spirit?


First of all I should say fall is my favorite seasons, mainly for 2 reasons: It's cool and I love all those changes of color.

I love decorations but I am not that great at it. Add to this problem our very low financial freedom, you get very little done in term of making the home very "fally". This year I decided to ntry to do something, so I put a basket full of apples on the dining table, and added this:

What do we actually in the fall? Well I am not much of an outdoor person, but during the fall I certainly make sure we do lots of nature walk and enjoy the color changes and the leaves falling. We pick up leaves, play in the leaves and just enjoy the beauty of it all.



Our annual tradition is apple picking, for the past 4 years. We all love it and we get to have fresh apple for fall baking which includes Apple pies, apple crisp, apple coffee cakes etc...

Hi Joelle! Love your little display. My latest fall obsession has been making mini apple pies! I love apples- we missed apple picking this year. That is really one of my fav fall traditions!

I adore your center piece Joelle! The best ones are those in which items gathered from outside are put together with love. Happy Fall! :O)
