I think I've complained about this endlessly of late, but there's still no real signs of autumn on the horizon yet. It will be up to 101 degrees this Saturday, and aside from that one red leaf I found on the path while walking to the car a couple of days ago, I'm still hearing birds chirping, there's a bright yellow thing blazing in the sky, and flowers hanging over the back fence. Sounds positively dreadful doesn't it? It's not really, I actually love the summer, but once the kids head back to school it immediately puts my mind in fall mode.
But, even though there's no signs of autumn yet, it doesn't mean I can't burn the pumpkin spice candles, and pretend that fall will be here soon ... right?
For now though, there will be no spiked apple cider, or pumpkin hot chocolate, instead there will be after school treats such as cinnamon apple slush.
This is so fun, and such a perfect fall themed after school treat for the kids. It's one they can make too. I'm going to show you two different methods, one that you can make while they are at school, and one they can make when they get home.
