September 2015 – Monthly Roundup


September was another month that flew by but filled with lots of sweet memories. Both of my girls started preschool and along with that came lots of school events and activities. It’s been an adjustment for all of us but we are getting into the swing of our new routine. The month felt like a mix of both summer and fall activities. We were still out swimming at the beginning of the month but then on to apple picking and farms at the end.

Here is a recap of where our adventures took us this month. Homestead Farm is a tried and true favorite of ours and we were there on the first day of Autumn to pick apples. Another fun field trip was out to the Agricultural History Farm Park in Derwood, Maryland. I had never heard of this place until I recently found out about it from a friend on Instagram. My girls loved visiting the farm animals and it’s free, so I recommend going to check it out.

I hope you found some good ideas for your family in this month’s list. We are looking forward to many more fun fall activities this month! Hopefully the remaining weekends are not rainy so we can all enjoy the pumpkin patches, fall festivals, and beautiful fall colors outdoors. There are so many fun Halloween events for kids in the DC are as well. Happy October!

Also, I use instagram as my everyday blog and share a lot of photos from our adventures in my gallery. I’d love to have you follow along!
