Fall To-Do

I love lists. I love making them and crossing things off of them. Before going to India 5 years ago I made a list of lists I needed to make. True story. So to try to encourage myself to make this first full month of fall fun for our family, I made a list of things to do. I'd like to do one a day, but I realize that might not always be possible. But I do hope to do them all before the end of October.

1. Do some handprint art.
2. Send some happy mail.
3. Go trick or treating.
4. Show a random act of kindness.
5. Have family photos taken.

7. Paint pumpkins.

  1. I love your list! It sounds like October will be FUN FUN FUN for you guys! If only I could be that dedicated to lists. It's a 50% effort. I LOVE making lists...and then I usually lose them. hehe

  2. I feel like you guys get family photos all the time, which is something I'm totally jealous of.

    A great list, though. You better blog about all the ones that you cross off. :)
