One of my favorite ways to celebrate
the autumn season with my family is to head over to the Athens Montessori
School Fall Festival.
My two boys are always jittery with excitement
while we wait in line at the entrance to purchase our tickets. Music
can be heard floating over the crowd from the stage as the children
from various classes perform.
I always want to take my time and shop
at the artist market for local crafts but my kids each grab a hand
and drag me from one activity to the next. Between the live music,
magic shows, farm animals, and crafts, everyone is happy.

A popular spot for little girls is the "Sassy Salon," where little

We love to stop by the Scholastic Book Fair to buy a book and then
head over to the bake sale and grab a homemade yummy treat. If I'm
feeling lucky, I'll join in the cake walk.
We've made really great
family memories and can't wait to spend time with the folks at Athens
Montessori again for the 2013 festival. It's all going down Saturday,
November 2nd. The action starts at 10 am and ends at 3 pm.

or at the former Barnett Shoals Elementary School Parking Lot just
across the street.
It's super fun for the entire family, but they ask
that you please leave your pets at home. Hopefully, I'll see you
there. I'll be the mom covered in fake tattoos and munching happily
on Rice Crispy Treats.
