Week 47: Fall

Originally Published December 16, 2011

Fall in Northwest Arkansas in is a beautiful time.   The leaves change colors and the summer heat moves out and leaves the mild temperatures of Fall.  Sweaters are retrieved from the closets and schools begin.  Then, it is time for Halloween and fall festivals.  Then, Thanksgiving is on the way with Christmas waiting in the wings.

Fall is also the time for football.  Arkansas Razorbacks football is always a joy to watch (well except for a couple of the recently previous seasons but we still watched!).   High school football is a major activity for high school students across the state.

Fall is the time when we change from the cookouts of the summer to the chili, soups, and stews of the fall.

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your memories on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
