Hello Darling Weekly readers! WOW! We are almost through September--time flies!

I personally love this time of year. For many of us, not so much our West Coast friends, the weather is starting to change, corn mazes and pumpkins are everywhere, and soon the trees will change colors and fill our streets with a rainbow of fall shades. Typically this season is short, so I try to take in as many activities as I can. In the coming weeks we are planning on going apple picking, buying and craving pumpkins, taking a hayride or two (my son will most likely insist on more than one), and playing outside as long as we can before our weather turns. I hope you will get to enjoy some fun fall activities as well (and don't worry, we will do our best to find great fall ideas for you to do with your family in the weeks to come).

This week we have found some great 'best reads'. Those of you with school age children, please read: "What Kinds of Homework Seem to be Most Effective?" And who out there is obsessed with Instagram, like I am?!?! Please check out, "Print Instagram Photos" in our 'Mommy Approved' section. These books are fabulous! Lastly, in connection with my love of Fall, please check out the recipe for: "Pumpkin Monkey Bread Bake"--YUM!!!

Enjoy issue #55 and have a wonderful weekend!
