Fresh Start...

I hope you squeezed every last inch of summer out of the month of August!  I know we did and we are now ready to welcome a new month and a new season!  For many of us, September means "Back to School."  

For me, the start of a new school year is a fresh start, almost like a “second chance” New Year’s, complete with a new list of goals and things I want to accomplish.  All four of my kiddos will be in school all day for the first time and I am looking forward to big blocks of uninterrupted ME time to finally work on several around-the-house projects that have been on hold for quite a while!   

September also brings us the first official day of Autumn, a visit to the apple orchard (and all the goodies made from the fresh picked apples!), breaking out our jeans and sweatshirts on crisp cool days, raking leaves, and taking an afternoon roadtrip with My Robot to see the colors.  We usually do one to celebrate our anniversary which is also this month.  

I love September. It’s my favorite time of year.

Like your posting girl.....I, too, can feel the Fall air. We might have to do some Amish baking and 'put up' some homemade apple pies.....or sit and think about it!!!
