It hardly seems possible, but there it is -- September first.
And BJ finishes up week three of school tomorrow!
Whatever happened to back-to-school being a fall sort of experience? Call me old fashioned, but back-to-school in mid-August high summer weather just doesn't feel right. I like so many other things about BJ's school, but not that.
My dear friend A said that she's declaring the start of fall as of next week. I think she might be on to something!
I'm definitely looking forward to crisp leaves, crisp apples, breezy autumn days. Hard to believe the school year will be already well over a month old by the time that comes around.
But really, that's a small thing to complain about. All told, first grade is off to a really good start. I worked for the first time in the classroom this week, and I really enjoyed it. Things went smoothly, the kids were (mostly) a lot of fun to work with. May that continue -- through September and beyond!
