A Fall To-Do List

I  LOVE lists.

There are a multitude of notepads filled to the brim with random lists scattered throughout my house.

Lists help me organize my thoughts. Even if I don’t lay my eyes on a list ever again, there is something about writing it down that makes it easier for me to remember.

With the fall season practically on our doorstep, I think it’s time for a Fall To Do List. 

I like to go into each new season armed with an assortment of activities for our family. As a stay-at-home mom, I am always at risk of getting stuck in a rut doing the same things over and over again.

It only takes a moment, however,  to create of list of fresh, enjoyable activities to do for the upcoming season. This way, I have something to consult if I am ever scrambling for ideas of what to do with W during the day.
