October has finally arrived and fall is in full swing! While I know I am not alone, fall is my favorite season and the one I look forward to all year. The cooler days and evenings, changing leaves, pumpkins, and Friday night lights just make my heart happy. Indeed, here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the autumn colors are so beautiful, and it is my favorite time of year to be outside in nature. Whether you prefer to spend your school days tromping through the woods or curled up with a book and a blanket, let us help you with some fun, free, fall-themed homeschool printables! Happy October!
