It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

You go to Soccer practice and learn how to play the game and be "cool".
Then Noni comes to visit and shows you and Bro how to plant pumpkin seeds to make little plants to put in the garden.
Then Mommy and Daddy throw you a big party with all your friends, at the local kid gym. You get to jump, climb, fall into foam blocks , bounce, hang upside down and then...,
have everyone sing Happy Birthday to you..., and blow out candles...,
and feel so happy inside that you can hardly wait to be six..., next year.
