Today is the last day of Caswallon’s first week at his new job, I am looking forward to the long labor day weekend together. Twenty-four more days until I start Fall quarter and Spacefox has his first day of preschool. I am more anxious about the second then the first. StarBear is going to be watched by family until I can get her into the same preschool.
I’ve been thinking about Autumn Equinox, especially now that the mornings are getting chilly enough that I need to grab a shawl. I normally knit the children hats and get them a new book (I’m thinking Mouses First Fall) as gifts but I don’t think SpaceFox needs a new one… I might make them new ones anyways, just to let them have something new and Mommy-made. Since they are really into creative play right now I’m considering getting them each a new Schleich toy, something Autumny, maybe the Chestnut Elf and the Apricum? The equinox is right around the start of school as well so I would be lying if I said I wasn’t considering getting them something extra as a kind of start-to-school present thing.
SpaceFox wants to go apple picking for the Equinox, which we did together every year I was married, but I don’t have a car anymore, so I am not sure how we are going to get out there… I’ll figure out something though because I really want to keep the tradition. StarBear is really into horses right now too, so I want her to see the draft horse at Harvest House that pulls the hayride.
Do you do anything special for the equinox?
