FALLing into Fun!

      Cold mornings, the color of leaves will start to change soon! Hoodies come out of storage and football season starts up! One of the best seasons in my opinion. So many different activities, trends and changes.

      Valas, Scary Acres, and fall crafts are here! Valas pumpkin patch opened September 15th. The number of fun things that you can do at Valas. Corn Maze, The Great Pumpkin Jump, Pumpkin Eating Dragon, and many, many more things to do. It may be very expensive but it’s a fun all day activity to do, you get your money worth. All the haunted houses in the metro are also opened now. My personal favorite is Scary Acres, it’s a three in one! The Master’s Castle, House on the Hill, and the Haunted Woods. The characters there really give a good scary environment.

      Pinterest is probably one of my favorite social media applications. Many different ideas for crafts and projects. Many ways to spread the fall spirit through your home and school. You can find anything from hand turkey paintings to how to decorate your yard for Halloween.

      Halloween is at the end of October. The weather gets colder, mornings are foggy and leaves soon to change colors. Fall has many kinds of food that get popular during the season. Thanksgiving is probably everyone’s favorite holiday. Turkey, sweet potatoes, and many other fantastic foods. Fall is beautiful; enjoy it.

What's New

It's an app called Sandbox Color by Number Coloring Pages. It's available in the Play store as well the App stores. It's a coloring app that lets you color by number. It helps relieve stress and is very relaxing. It's also very addicting so be careful. I highly suggest you check it out. You are able to print your pictures as well as share them. To be able to color any pictures you have to buy them but they are some really great ones that are on the app that you can color without paying. Which are the ones that don't have hearts at the top of the picture. If there is a heart you have to buy to color. It doesn't take up much space and it's a great way to focus on something other than school for an hour or two.

Book Club Wednesday

I'm reading The Fire by Caroline B. Cooney. It's the third in a series so I suggest you reading the first two books. Fog and Snow. It follows the story of a girl named Christine who is the only one who sees the series and maybe even deadly intentions of her Principal and his wife also her English teacher. The Shevvingtons. It's up to her to save people who are close to her that is if they don't kill her first. I'm in love with this book, but then again, I fall in love with every book that keeps me reading past the first chapter, but this book keeps you on your toes. There are a series of twist and turn, it's frustrating but you can't put it down because you must know what happens next. It's one of those books you read instead of doing homework and it's exhilarating. I highly suggest this series. You can find it in the school library in the Fiction section.

I'm considering starting a new series. But after I finish Fire I think I'm going to take a break from series of books until I find the right one I want. So, I am going to consider the book Revived by Cat Patrick. It's about a girl who is a pawn of the government she is revived repeatedly and each time moved to a new destination with a new name so no one finds out about this project. When she meets her first two real friends she realizes that maybe she doesn't want to be revived again. I guess she will find out what happens when life and death collide. If this seems like a book you would read tell me and read it before me and please tell me what you think. Feedback is always welcome.

This has been Miracle with her weekly book club Wednesday. Enjoy the rest of your week and make sure you pick up a book or two.
