Making and Keeping Fall Traditions

Traditions are the things that we cling to when life bounces us around. Traditions are stability for our kids when their minds and their bodies are growing too fast for them — and us. Traditions are what we use to create beautiful memories with our families.
Can we be deliberate in tradition building? I think so. After all, what is a tradition after all? It’s a practice that is repeated overtime.
Hopefully, we repeat only the traditions we love and ditch the ones that don’t work for our families. And we can always create new ones. Wondering how?
Consider these aspects of making and keeping Fall traditions.
If you live in a locale where harsher weather is just a few months away, now is a great time to get out of doors. As I browsed through past photos recently, I noticed how in our Kansas City days, we swam in September and got the first snow in November. Fall can fly by if you don’t take advantage of the beautiful weather.
Fair weather days lend themselves to cooler nights and chilly mornings. Create cozy corners in your home to cuddle up with little ones or hang out with older children.
Fall features some of the best comfort foods around: macaroni and cheese, soups, stews, chilis, hot cocoa, and flavored coffees. There’s no end to the good eats to be had. And when you enjoy them with friends and family, so much the better.
Whatever you do and wherever you go, take pictures! Not only do the fall colors look beautiful on film, but they are as fleeting as this time with our children. My boy was just a toddler . And now he’s a teenager. How did this happen?
