November is that in-between month. The turmoil of back to school is long behind us (it takes at least 6 weeks, in my experience) and the retail world is in full-on Christmas mode, but it’s not really the holidays yet. The weather could be nice, but it could also be bitterly cold. I always want to plan a vacation for November, but January is coming, too, and then I’ll really need one. Regardless of how you feel about November, find something fun to do with your family!
