Fall is just around the corner...

I can't believe my son is starting 2nd grade next Wed! Which means only 4 more days left of summer vacation. It just seems like yesterday he was going to preschool and learning his ABC's. My husband and I were remembering the other day when Ian was in preschool and one day he decided to share that 'Sunny's winning!'. We looked at each quizzically and then looked at him and asked him what he meant. He just kept repeating that sunny was winning and was a bit frustrated that we had no idea what he was talking about. We finally realized that they were doing a weather graph in school. Now he is doing subtraction in his head and continuing to surprise us. On another note, when Ian started preschool I forever became known as 'Ian's mommy' instead of Melanie.
I remember as a kid summer vacation feeling forever long. Time seems so different as a child. Fall and Halloween are just around the corner. This time of year is my favorite. Actually it seems like each holiday/season is my favorite, but I am partial to this time of year because my birthday is November 4th (election day this year) and my newest niece was born last year on October 30th. I can't wait to go apple picking, getting pumpkins and trick or treating with our friends.

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day Weekend!

I couldn't help but feel nostalgic about the turn of seasons upon us. Reading you talking about apples, and pumpkins, the fall harvest... gave me goosebumps! I too tend to love each season, but I have decided its this inbetween stage that is the sweetest of all! The longing for the season passing and the anticipation of things about to be!
