Fall is in full color around here. We just returned from a gorgeous four hour hike to a waterfall in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was unreal being surrounded by the yellow, red and orange trees towering over us while hiking along a rushing creek.
Of course, we are a homeschooling family.
So we don't say that the leaves are "changing color" since clearly leaves don't change. They simply lose their chlorophyll revealing the color that was there all along. Hmm- A spiritual metaphor, maybe?
We having been keeping busy this fall, pumpkin picking, baking with pumpkins and enjoying the cooler weather.
I also let the kids pick out one, fun fall themed treat to create off Pinterest.
This fall they picked these cute acorn treats. Only three ingredients are needed. Hershey Kisses, Mini Nutter Butters and Mini Chocolate Chips.
Simply twist the Nutter Butters in half, use the side with the peanut butter on it to attach to the Kiss. Melt some of the Mini Chocolate Chips and use as a glue to glue a Mini Chocolate Chip, "stem" on the top. And you are done! The kids loved making these, but loved eating them even more!
