Summer – It’s not over until it’s over

November 4, 2018

Good Weather in September

I’ll be the first to admin that the days are cooler, but when the sun does show itself, September is still summer. But too often it’s the forgotten month.

As parents of three kids ourselves, we know exactly what it’s like. The kids are off for weeks until the end of August, and then September comes around and it’s back into the routine: school runs, after school clubs, and homework. Usually lots of homework.

Our minds stop thinking about getting outdoors in September as we get back into the school routine

It’s such a change from the summer school break, that our minds naturally stop thinking about getting outdoors in September as we try and get back into the school routine.

When the weekend does come around, everyone is a little too exhausted. I know I am.

September Weather

Just like summer, you can’t guarantee what the weather is going to do. But there are warm sunny days still.

Think back to early Spring or Winter, when you were wishing for warmer weather. Well, that warmer weather is still here now, in September.

After a long summer, we become a little ‘desensitised’ to it.

You do have to be prepared for colder nights if camping, and even when out and about. (I looked at climbing Snowdon today, but the Met Office says it will feel like -2!) However, it still can be t-shirts and shorts weather too.

Ideas for Getting Out With The Kids in September

I’m sure you can come up with lots of other ideas too. Hopefully, it’s given you a little bit of inspiration to make the most of the last moments of Summer, and not let September slip through your fingers 🙂

  1. You are dead right September shouldn’t stop you getting out, you just need to prepare slightly differently.

    We headed out, as a family, Geocaching yesterday. Autumn is great for this activity as the stingers are dying back and not so many leaves about so caches are a little easier to find (assuming they are not covered in the fallen leaves), also less non geocachers (called muggles) to have to be stealthy around.
