It’s about that time and you know it. The time for amazing fall weather that we get to relish like only North Carolinians can. With “Take a Child Outside” week happening September 24-30, we now have even more reason to do so.
Whatever the fall season brings, my hope at home is that we think of the outdoors first. The showy wonder of fall reminds us to put down our i-thingies and do device detox for a little while. I plan to go outside, breathe deep and remember that soon our days will be shorter and darker. Outside time isn’t just a week, but an opportunity to store up some wonder for the winter ahead.
