“I like when the leaves change. I also like it because the apples are ready to be picked and so are the pumpkins.”

“I like the fall weather because there’s rain after the hot summer. The flowers and everything that needs water can get water now and grow in the spring.”

Lindsey Robbins, fifth grade

“I like the color of the leaves because it makes it feel more like November. I like it when it rains hard because where I live, it floods and it’s hard to get into my apartment. So when I don’t want to go outside, my parents can’t make me because of the high water. “
