While I realize there are many places in the country where the term "hotter than hades" might still apply, in Minnesota, Fall is most definitely in the air.
From the first official switching on of the heat (last Wednesday) to the first switching on of our instant fireplace, I absolutely savor those sweet, first days of chilly air that come every September.
Uggs trade places with flip flops for the morning bus stop runs, and yoga pants make their triumphant return. (Muffin tops everywhere cheer for Fall temperatures!)
Hats and gloves come out of storage, finding their way onto a 6th grade boy's head who in turn makes goofy faces when his mother insists on taking a picture. (Taken on the first day of school.)
No. He won't live to regret this one at all.
In celebration of Fall, however, Cole has decided to take advantage of his insanely huge hat collection, vowing not to wear the same hat twice during the entire month of September. So far, so good. In fact, to make sure he doesn't mess up the order, he's using one of his many journals to track the hat wearing.
I think he's onto a new Fall tradition of his own.
Here's to cooler temps coming soon to a climate near you.
