It’s not hard to “fall” for October, given that many of the month’s signature experiences are all about the cozies and the yummies — who doesn’t love Halloween tricks and treats (check out these cupcake recipes) and apple butter slathered on absolutely everything?
Speaking of apples, don’t miss this month’s fun family travel feature, a children’s-book-inspired itinerary for the Big Apple! Also inside our October issue: a beautiful essay about how a cancer diagnosis and treatment shifted one mother’s approach to parenting teens; tips for supporting a neurodivergent child in sports; financial planning strategies for families raising children with special needs; and more!
However you spend your October (and here are 15 fabulous ways to do so), we hope it delivers all of the good seasonal feels to your family. Don't forget to check out our annual Learning and NWAIS School Guide issues while you're at it!
