I do this every year! The cold weather arrives and surprises me. I have talked to a couple other moms today that have said the same thing. Earlier this week we were sweating at the park and then today I had to scramble around (and end up late to school) trying to find long pants that fit and suitable jackets.
It is so refreshing though this cool weather. Cuddling up on the couch with a blanket and pulling out comfy sweatshirts that are like old friends. The not-so-fun part though is the dreaded and time-consuming task of switching out summer clothes for winter clothes and figuring out what fits who and what is needed. Ugh! Anyone else feeling my pain?
It really does take forever and honestly last year for my clothes I just left the totes out in my room. They became a permanent part of my decor. Yes, you could call that laziness, I just decided it was fruitless labor, the hauling and moving and such.
So for the next few days I will have stacks of pants and shorts and jackets laying around our house. I will sift and sort and toss and donate and hopefully, eventually get each of our wardrobe straightened out. The fun part is seeing how much the boys have grown and seeing Eli now wearing clothes that McCall wore.
And of course the cold weather also means that so many fun things are around the corner. Pumpkin picking, Halloween costumes, football weekends, windy days, crunching leaves, using the fireplace, anticipating snow? (dare I even say it), family at Thanksgiving and finally all the wonderful days of Christmas preparation and celebrating our Saviour’s birth.
So what do you look forward to with the cold weather arriving?
