Oct 07, 2012 Falling In Love With Fall All Over Again The great thing about having a child is that it makes you appreciate things you take for granted. For the last few years, I thought of fall as a time for yard work and raking leaves. However, this year I have rekindled my love of the season. My son is delighted with the brilliant colors of autumn, the crinkling noise leaves make under his feet, and the graceful way a leaf floats down from a branch. I love his enthusiasm for all things big and small.
