When it’s winter you can keep the family’s coats, scarves, gloves and boots inside. During the springtime,you can  keep the family’s umbrellas, rain boots and rain jackets locked away. Then comes summer, when it’s time for sneakers and picnic baskets, you can keep those inside too. But don’t forget fall. Keep your light jackets and football hats tucked away inside.
