The Emergence of Fall


By the Supportive Daycare Program

Summer and its nice warm days leave —

Cool, crisp days of fall arrive

Deep blue skies of October,


Apples, falling leaves

Halloween is coming.

Dad says, “Let’s get a pumpkin!”

Apple cider — the smell of it fills the house

Music and singing “Happy Birthday” to October children —

always into mischief — but that’s the fun!


Family, memories, good food

So much to be thankful for!
