We still have FIVE weeks of fall left, are you taking advantage of it? There is only one autumn given to us each year, afterall.

Fall is SUCH a beautiful time of year here in Ohio and I feel like I haven’t really taken advantage of it. Life has been busy.

So I’m looking at my list of 30 Things to do this Fall as I work on this post (link to get your free copy is at end of this post) to see what part of the fall season I can redeem before snow falls.

How can I still make autumn memories in these last weeks?

I haven’t done much on this list with my family so far, to be honest, but our family has done at least a couple things on my list and we have done other things.

The boys have had hot cocoa and we’ve lit the fireplace a few times. I love that cozy glow.

We will need to rake leaves soon but have not made any new leaf projects this year.

While we watch movies together as a family I don’t think we’ve watched any of these seasonal movies.

We did not visit a pumpkin farm or corn maze this year and we did not decorate the yard.

We haven’t made any new toilet paper roll bird or squirrel feeders.

No apple pies made but my husband made a great apple crisp!

We’ve enjoyed a couple pumpkin pies (store bought frozen, of course) with store bought whipped cream because I was able to stock up on pies when they went on sale months ago.Find some fall recipes here.

We have traveled. Because I write about family travel we had the opportunity to stay a couple nights on South Bass Island, Ohio in September and then in October we stayed a couple nights in Florence, Kentucky. We were fortunate to squeeze in a couple stops along the way to some ancient mounds. Those stories will be shared on my Ohio blog: 1000thingsOhio.com.

We didn’t do “trick or treat” or carve pumpkins and no one is complaining.

We did attend a fun Homeschool Pot Luck Fall party at Skyzone.

I’m content and my family seems content. It’s okay not to do everything on a list, right?

I have my fall bucket list on my refrigerator right this minute and I have looked over it. I love fall and I don’t want to miss a great opportunity to still make some memories during this beautiful season.

What are your favorite fall season family activities?
