It’s true what they say… time flies and children grow up before you know it.

 

Right now its beautiful outside- the changing leaves, the temperature, even the gray days of fall are beautiful as a backdrop to the colored trees.

 

Parents, what are you doing to make memories with your children- bad memories of lost tempers and impatience or memories worth … keeping?

 

Take advantage of this beautiful autumn season.

 

Now.

 

Because the leaves are falling fast and soon it will be winter and soon your children will not be this young. They will grow up and you will die.

 

How will they remember you?

 

Just as the seasons change, so will our children.

 

So stop worrying about how well they’re doing in school. Stop worrying about perfection in any department. Go outside, because the days are short!

 

Go for a walk and talk about life. Ask them if there is anything on their mind. Get to know your child’s mind and heart.

 

Make crafts together. (If your on Pinterest see my Fall Fun & Yum board for lots of ideas to make this season memorable).

Rake leaves together (even a neighbor’s).

Carve pumpkins.

Collect leaves, buckeyes, and acorns.

Take pictures outside.

Go to a pumpkin patch or take a hayride.

Go for a bike ride.

Roast marshmallows in the backyard.

 

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”

-Ephesians 5:15-17

 

*One way we are redeeming the time.
